Hi Shannon,

So nice hearing from you, so how long ago did you leve the OC? My daughter also worked at the Brea Mall some time back. It's a really neat mall, just about the right size for almost anything you could want.

Thanks for the visit and commenting.

Lynda this is a great post about Brea.  I really like those areas that keep the feel of a small town while still having the benefits of a larger city.  If this is one of the top five cities in the West, I definitely need to put it on my list of places to see!

Hey Thom,

I miss good ole' Brea too! You know the days when Brea Blvd. was a little two lane road and the bar fights from Sam's Place will spill out into the street! Now those were the days!

Brea is a wonderful city to live and visit. Some of the best resturants  in the area are in Brea. If you have not enjoyed the BBQ Baby Back Ribs at Lucille's you have no idea what you are missing.

Ronnie ~ Thanks for the nice visit. And yes we've become a pretty good place for dining and what I call fun eating. Lucille's is great, been there too many times. You're in La Mirada, I love La Mirada.

Bill ~ Thanks so much for the visit and the 5 stars! I just took a look at this and it looks a little short, not sure if I left from of it on the drawing board...hmmm, I'll need to double check.

i agree with the person who misses the "good ol' Brea". i grew up in Brea, but have relocated to Fullerton because Brea morphed into a town that is devoid of any culture that is not 'vanilla' flavored. 

How many Starbucks locations does Brea have? can anyone guess?  i personally know of 3. out of curiosity i googled and found 5.

Now how many independently owned coffee houses does Brea have? anyone? anyone?  

long gone are the mom and pop shops and the true "townie" feel it used to have. it now looks just like any other upper-scale 'burb.... a mini Irvine, perhaps. which is fine, if you like vanilla.
