The bar is fantastic--comfortable, welcoming and great drinks. Having a drink along with a side of deviled eggs is a highlight. The food is excellent and the menu features many dishes you do not see elsewhere. My favorite is the short rib tacos--you cannot go wrong. It is a fun atmosphere and a great place to take family and friends.

This restaurant reminds me of the places I loved going to in Europe. I love the location right by the train station and I like the open high ceilings inside and the patio seating outside. There is a bar to the side that is separate from the large dining area. This is not a place I'd choose for a date... More

We went walking in Old Town to pick a place for lunch. After looking all over Colorado Blvd and Raymond area we decided to go down Arroyo to the Train Station. That was the best move of the day. It is a wonderful busy spot with ambiance. The service from Derek was perfect. He explained all the options and most... More

Ate at La Grande Orange Cafe on the recommendation of local folks. Food was delicious and the staff were super helpful in planning a meal for a person with multiple and dangerous food allergies. Consulted with chef and suggested great alternatives with cautious kitchen techniques. We really appreciated the careful attention. Also were surprised and pleased to have valet parking... More

Burgers, salads and other light fare are the stars here. Outdoor seating is relaxing. There is a fence the separates it from the street, but traffic noise can still interrupt conversation.

Sunday brunch was good but definitely crowded. There isn't a lot of room to wait when it's rainy (of course, we picked a day when we experienced the rare and illusive So. Cal rain). We also weren't allowed to reserve a table as there were 7 of us (which had us all joking about how next time, we will make... More

We experienced great food with very good service! The ambience was inviting and the decor very interesting as it is right by the train that goes through the city!

Such a wonderful dinner! Great bar area with the best cocktails. It is noisy, but the wait staff are very attentive and could not do enough for us to make our experience the very best. Very cozy atmosphere. Save room for the Key Lime pie, it is delicious.

Right across from a city park and the gold metro line station is this lovely restaurant with patio and in door seating. Salads were excellent including the kale salad that comes with a yummy high quality beef and cheddar cheeseburger. Deviled eggs with bacon were a popular and tasty appetizer. One of our party had the lemon ricotta hot cakes... More
