Supporting Local In and Around Laguna Hills

We may be biased, but Orange County is home to some of the best attractions and restaurants in California. Of course, there’s Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, South Coast Plaza and a coastline full of beautiful beaches. 

But as longtime residents of South Orange County, we have a particular fondness to so many local establishments right out our back door. As things start to open back up again, we’re finding ourselves frequenting these amazing spots. As always, we encourage you to support local and give these and so many others a try! 

Here’s some of our favorite ways to spend time in and around Laguna Hills! 

Franco’s Famous
This family owned restaurant is our go-to for Taco Tuesday. Don’t miss out on crispy chicken tacos and cheese enchiladas, coupled with a margarita or one of the best old fashions in the area. Not to mention the staff is out of this world!. You will not have a bad experience here!

Mangia Bene Cucina
Mangia Bene has been serving Orange County’s best Italian cuisine for over 25 years. Portobello pizza, bruschetta, chocolate cake and a nice glass of red wine top the charts for us! They are currently offering indoor and outdoor seating as well as online ordering for pickup or delivery through Doordash.

Break of Dawn Restaurant
The experience and food at Break of Dawn is out of this world! A twist on traditional classics are presented in a creative manner by Chef Dee Nguyen, former executive sous chef of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Here you’ll find the menu changing frequently and seats selling out fast. Do not miss this one, it’s truly a gem in Laguna Hills.

La Paws Dog Park
After indulging in the great food Laguna Hills has to offer, we leash up the pups and head to La Paws Dog Park. The 6-acre park has 3 acres of land for your four legged friends to burn off some pent-up COVID energy and a walking trail with beautiful views. Be sure to follow them for regulations and open times. They close weekly for turf maintenance.

Laguna Hills Civic Center
The City of Laguna Hills has an ongoing exhibition at the Laguna Hills Civic Center. Our city has a rich history. Did you know that Laguna Hills officially became a City on March 5, 1991? Learn more about Laguna Hills, Nellie Gail Moulton, Moulton Ranch, and other interesting topics and pioneers. Keep up to date with exhibits and events here.
