Alessa is another Italian favorite located down the street from Main Beach. This restaurant spot can get crowded though, so make sure to call ahead and get your name on the list! Their gnocchi is top notch, so definitely test out this special dish.
- Carmelita’s Kitchen – Rancho Santa Margarita
On the hunt for quality Mexican food? Carmelita’s Kitchen has a variety of awesome choices. The best part about this restaurant is its prime location. The outside dining area sits right on the Rancho Santa Margarita Lake, so head over on a warm night to get a table outside!

- Urth Caffé – Laguna Beach
Another hot spot in Laguna Beach is Urth Caffé. If you’re sticking to a nutritious diet then test out Urth’s sandwich and salad options. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, then Urth has plenty of baked goods for you. I recommend trying their Thai Boba tea or a fresh fruit smoothie!
- Sundried Tomato – San Juan Capistrano & San Clemente
This American Bistro is often overlooked, but their food will definitely satisfy any craving! For first-timers, I recommend the Comfort Combo. There’s nothing better than grilled cheese and creamy tomato soup.
