My wonderful friend Liz from A Nut in a Nutshell came up with this fun idea called The Five Spot. A weekly collection of five favorite things. And well, I have a lot of favorite things, so I had to jump in on the action. Since I ate out quite a bit this week I'd thought I'd go with a theme of local eateries that I think are the bees knees.
I've eaten here twice in the past week! I've been a loyal fan since they opened up down the street from my house. And really, how can you not love waffle sandwiches?

As soon as I walked in to this place I was instantly a fan. I tried a few different menu items, but the breakfast pizza was my favorite. A perfectly cooked egg and so much flavor! There's also a market and a juice bar too. I wish I lived closer, but maybe it's better for my wallet that I don't.
I didn't really appreciate the awesomeness of this place until more recently. It's a regular weekend lunch stop for my family, and the only "fast food" we eat. There are more locations than Orange County, but it's still pretty limited. And anytime an out of town friend visits this is a must-stop location for us!
I'm actually not a huge fan of pizza. I don't mind making it at home, but when it comes to fast food pizza...bleh. Pieology is Chipotle-style ordering. You get a custom pizza that tastes amazing and it only takes a few minutes. I love making different kinds of combinations.
That's it for this week's Five Spot. I'm looking forward to making a new one!
Do you have any favorite eateries in Orange County?
