Cedar Creek Inn 
 
 
"Cedar Creek Inn - It's a Family Affair! We opened our first restaurant in 1976 up in Lake Arrowhead with our children, Susan, Larry, Sally and Julie. We converted what had been a little art store into our first 'Inn'. Our menu consisted mostly of old family recipes. After several great years in the mountains, we relocated the Cedar Creek Inn to the desert with restaurants in Palm Springs and Palm Desert. In 1989 we opened in Laguna Beach in the historic Lumberyard building on Forest Avenue, and in 1995 we left the desert to open accross from the Mission in beautiful San Juan Capistrano. In the fall of 1999 we opened our newest restaurant in Brea at Olen Pointe. Our menu now reflects the influences of the many talented people that we have worked with over the years and our 'family' has expanded to include spouses, grandchildren and dedicated staff members."  Brea, Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano

Doll Hut 
 
 
"The Doll Hut was built in the 1910s, and until the 1960s was the Sunkist Cafe, which served as the truck stop between LA and San Diego.

When the LA Times announced in June of 2001 that the club would be closing, Blue Murphy and Anthony Castaneda, who had met at the Doll Hut in 1992 and enjoyed numerous bands at the little red roadhouse, decided to buy the Doll Hut and continue the tradition of supporting great live music!"  Anaheim
