"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|

"A hundred years ago the table land called El Modena was covered with sagebrush and cactus webbed with sheep and cattle trails. Early in 1886 a town was laid out in the brush country and named Modena, but to eliminate confusion with another town an El was added to the name. The town was soon settled by colonists from the middle west who belonged to a "Society of Friends", more commonly called Quakers. A meeting house was needed and in June 1887 work was started on a building located on a two and one-half acre plot on Chapman Avenue donated by four members of the congregation. The whole community co-operated in the project and on August 15, 1887 a meeting house was dedicated.
David Hewes, though not a Quaker, donated a large church bell. The building stood high and conspicuous in a land that had few trees or houses. The friends were newcomers to California and were not acquainted with its unusual weather. Their new building was only one month old when a desert wind called a Santa Ana roared across the open country and pushed the building from its foundation. The building collapsed and the heavy bell crashed to the ground and completely wrecked the structure. When the wind died down the friends surveyed the wreckage and with no hesitation cleared the debris and started building again. The second church was built on the lines of the first but was fortified against the weather. For ninety years it stood as a monument in the heart of El Modena.
Over the years new voices were heard in the community. Spanish became the common language. The friends outgrew their venerable home and in 1967 moved to another meeting place a half-mile away. For nine years their old home stood abandoned until Javier and Nora Moreno rescued the landmark. They were natives of the community and with nostalgia and long experience in serving tasty food, they purchased the property and added a touch of Mexico.
The old church building was not changed but was blended into surroundings where the food and hospitality of early California can be enjoyed."  Orange|
|Orange County Mining Company Restaurant|| ||
A restaurant with a first class view! Fine salad bar, too. "It pictures mines and wealth; it portrays tales of hope and faith in search of silver. Along the Silverado, eager miners drove their tunnels, and prospectors combed the mountain side and canyon bottoms, all in search of signs of precious metal. Silverado Canyon, formerly known as Canada del la Madera to the Indians and Spanish Californians, was an already explored canyon when J.E. Pleasants and Sam Shewsbury pioneered in the Santiago Canyon of which Silverado is a branch. Goats were raised at nearly all of the ranches and for years vied with bees as the principal industry. The sleepy canyon settlements idled quietly until one day in the fall of 1877, Hank Smith and William Curry came upon silver ore.
The first claim, Southern Belle, remained relatively dormant. Then another mine, The Santa Clara, was located. An article published in the Los Angeles Times heralded the discovery of silver and from that point on, men rushed into the canyon seeking fame and fortune. Creaking wagons, some of which had come across the plains, spring wagons, carts, dilapidated old surries and shiny rigs from livery stables clattered over the rocks at the crossings and sweating horses dragged the outfits into the new found El Dorado. With the arrival of prospectors, new shops, hotels and saloons emerged. It is in the tradition of the Old Silverado grubberies and saloons that the Orange County Mining Company was patterned.
The Orange County Mining Company actually sits upon one of the old silver mine sites at the canyon. Relics displayed within the restaurant's interior are genuine artifacts of the mining era.
