Last weekend we took a mini road trip down south to San Juan Capistrano, we hadn’t been before, and with the exception of the Mission, had no idea what to expect. What we found was a quaint Spanish colonial town filled with flowers, cacti, butterflies, a really fantastic brunch, and off course, The Mission.
What I Wore: Hat: Vintage, Dress: Racquel Allegra, Sandals: Birkinstocks.
Los Rios District
The Los Rios District is a residential and business, historic district, mostly situated along a unpaved road. It’s home to some beautiful homes, a butterfly sanctuary, a historic adobe home, some adorable boutiques and a few restaurants.
Ramos House Café
Ramos House Café is worth the trip down south alone, whilst the fixed price ($44), two course brunch might seem a little steep, it was really delicious and really worth it (Scott claimed it was just as good as Tasty n Sons – which is a big deal). They don’t take reservations, but we arrived around 11.30am and only waited 20 minutes.
