Where to eat in Mission Viejo?

Where else but the neighborhood diner?


Hungry for hearty, home style breakfast?  Looking for some local flavor?  Check out Paul's Pantry in Mission Viejo.  


Paul's Pantry is a popular, comfortable neighborhood diner with great home style food, great service and familiar faces.  This gem of a place has been family owned and run since 1990.  


Though they also serve lunch, we usually visit Paul's Pantry for breakfast.  One of the best things there is also one of the worst; the awesome and dreaded cinnamon roll.  


Question: Who would order toast over a Paul's Pantry cinnamon roll?

Answer: No one.


The cinnamon roll is a ridiculously yummy and deadly choice.  You know you shouldn't order it, but you do it anyway.  You're sharing, so it's okay or [insert your excuse here].


Anyone visiting or living in or around Mission Viejo should certainly give this place a try.


A bonus is that if you dine outdoors on the patio, you can bring your dog.  Woof.

Knowing the good, local places to eat is a must when visiting an area you aren't familiar with.  Even in my own area, I prefer the one off restaurants to the ever present chains.

Chris Ann Cleland - I'm with you on the local places.  Wonderful discoveries can be made when you go local.

Michael Dagner - I enjoyed a Paul's Pantry again this morning because you never leave Paul's without leftovers.

Hi Jill Murty, Realtor - Serving Orange County, CA ,  If we still lived in Mission Viejo, we would be having breakfast at Paul's Pantry.
