Zito's is a main pizza joint in the city of Orange and throughout central-east OC. You come here mainly for the pizza, which has a decent NY Style. Maybe native New Yorkers would approve- maybe not, but this California girl certainly does! Zito even will refund the price of a pizza if you're not satisfied after a bite of one slice! The deluxe version of Zito's is in Tustin, which features Sunday Brunch (yay!).
For the locals especially, Zito's is good for offering coupons in snail-mailed dining guides and coupons. However, on website there are coupons for anyone to get.
Live entertainment occurs every Friday and Saturday at the 17th St location in Tustin.
Slices are readily available M-F during lunch hours, until about 3 at the Old Towne Orange location.

Located off the SE part of the traffic circle in the heart of Old Towne Orange is Two's Company.
Panini, soups and salads are the tasty made-after-order favorites. 2's is fresh, fairly fast and affordable for most. Entrees are from $6-$10, coffee and other drinks just a few bucks more. The charming eaterie is well suited for al fresco dining, with plenty of seating. Breakfast and lunch is served. A visit here well-deserved.
Favorite Dish: Panini!! Any here is likely to die for. So far, I get the turkey cranberry!The bread was perfectly toasted, nice melted within. Cran not overly sweet. Very tasty and filling!

You may want to unbutton your pants to enjoy the delicious food stuff you will get at Flappy Jack's.
Not just a run-of-the-mill American breakfast joint, FP revives the morning eating experience with very flavorful, gourmet versions of standard pancakes, waffles, crepes and my fave of all- french toast. Featured flavors inclue pecan , banana nut, bacon batter mix and Hawaiian (coconut pineapple).
FP is a hit with Orange city, Villa Park and Anaheim Hills locals but others may happen to stop in, as it is visble off the 55 fwy. Inside, one can go back in time in the "good ol' mid 20 century Americana days, with Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. They are featured as plastered figures in the restaurant.
Note: Lunch is also available. No dinner.

Try to seek out Rutabegorz if visiting Orange county, especially central or north county. Rutabegorz (said as"ROO-ta-beh-gores") started just in 1991 as a juice/coffee spot but thankfully grew into a small local chain serving healthy and delectable natural food. The specialities here are the crepes, sandwiches and salads. There is a lean towards offering hearty and wholesome. Many vegetarian options are available but chicken, eggs and turkey dishes are common to have.
There is a very friendly and intimate atmosphere felt once walking through the door. Once seated there is usually no long wait for ordering. The hardest thing to do here is to decide on what to have. There are three locations of Rutabegorz, thus far. The central and charming-looking restaurant is at the Old Town Inn, in Orange. One that I have frequented is in the city of Fullerton, due north. There is another location in Tustin. Regulars are common in each Ruta stop. Treat yourself in a truly OC dining spot.
Each location has different hours of operation. Old Town Inn operates Mon & Tuesday (from 11-4PM; Wed-Sat 11 AM -9PM). In Tustin, it is open from (Mon-Sat 11 AM -9PM; Sun from 11 AM to 8PM). The one in Fullerton has the most late hours. (Mon-Thurs from 11 AM to 10 PM; Fri/Sat from 11AM- 11PM and Sun from 4 PM -9PM).
Favorite Dish: spinach/mushroom crepes
delicate and delicious crepe...individual ingredients stand out separately-- Under $10

In 2008, a new dining sensation has come to the city of Orange- Tutto Fresco. Just steps away from a McDonalds-gas station convenience stop, the trattoria offers semi-gourmet Italian-American cuisine for astoundingly affordable prices. The menu is quite varied- richly flavored pasta dishes, wraps, panini, and salads with choices of grilled chicken, meat and seafood. Skip the Big Mac for a Fresco feast.
Eat in the elegant, yet casually designed dining room. A party of two will be plenty full from 2 main dishes, crostini and rolls (with generous samples of vinegar, grated parmesano and olive oil for dipping), spending only about $25. If on the road, go in the drive-thru option to order and enjoy fancier fair for your road trip.
Tutto Fresco is also in Rancho Santa Margarita, south Orange county, at :
30642 Santa Margarita #E104
and coming soon to the city of Santa Ana.
Favorite Dish: Trenette alla Cardinale
thin ribbon pasta, sun dried pasta, grilled chicken breast in tomato cream sauce
grilled chicken breast with sauteed spinach and Roma tomatoes in our tomato cream sauce

Here is the most famous place to get a Cuban Sandwich way west of Miami- Felix's!
Also, Spanish food is on the menu here with the usual suspect- paella! Come in early for dinner (6-7 PM to beat the rush of locals dining. The restaurant building is quite small but there are tables placed outside for extensive "al fresco" experience.
The location is very visible, off the famous traffic circle of the Old Orange district.
What's nice is that there are generous portions here- perhaps too nice with the rice.
Careful to avoid eating here if on a low-carb diet.
There is patio seating but note the bar is indoors only!
Check out the website for more on specialties from Felix!
Favorite Dish: Cuban Sandwich- just the basics here: toasted bread and ham
platanos- plantains, made with perfection
Tres Leches Cake !! a moist , rich cake with "three milks"

One of the hottest, new eateries in the city of Orange is the Belgian waffle sandwich joint, Bruxie. You'll know just how popular it is by the circus of people it has each day all around its edifice, basically a medium sized food stand. The sandwich eaterie serves up semi-fancy restaurant quality street food culinary delight. It is steps away from the campus to Chapman College and a short walk from the Orange train station, Old Town Orange's traffic circle and main shopping area.
During peak times, weekday/weekend lunch (11PM-2PM), expect to wait about 10-15 min to wait to be served or get your order. So, is Bruxie's worth the wait. Absolutely! Choose from savory and sweet Belgian waffle sandwiches. The waffle itself is plain (non-sweetened) packed with typical and not-so-common sandwich ingredients. If you want to play it safe, try the Brussels waffle with pure maple syrup. Blah blah! Now, if you are willing to go out of the norm- get an Ogura waffle with red bean ans sweet cream or for a savory, try the popular(yes, popular!) buttermilk fried chicken waffle with cole slaw and chili honey!
This place is local hotspot that is expanding. New joints have opened in Brea and Rancho Santa Margarita or some restaurant entreprenuer will be inspired and open a similar Belgian waffle joint. Until then, come here to the heart of Orange and shhh, don't tell all of the masses- else the wait time will be even longer!!
Favorite Dish: Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Goat Cheese
sophisticated and downright tasty

Favorite Dish: any wrap on menu- healthier option from which to choose

We had a comedy performance to attend and was looking for a restaurant near the Brea Improv to celebrate our friend's birthday. I gave Nini several options of which three immediately became non-options, which left us with La Vie en Rose. I've eaten at the Rose before and don't recall it being anything special. However, admittedly I was impressed during this visit. Two of us ordered the lamb dish and devoured it with huge smiles and satisfied tummies. :) In terms of the look of the restaurant, it's interior could be described as quaint and elegant. The service was fine. Overall, it was a good dining experience by all and we made it in time for the Brea Improv.
Favorite Dish: Carré d'Agneau Rôti à l' Ail et au Parfum de Romarin (roasted rack of lamb with garlic and rosemary)
