Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

A Step Back in Time at the Silverado Cafe

Silverado Cafe 1

Take a step back in time to when Orange County was full of horses, ranches and roaming buffalo by dining at the Silverado Cafe in Silverado. My friend has been dining at this cafe for many years and recommended that I try it. So, when my kids had the morning off from school, we took a drive into what felt like we were driving into another era in the Silverado canyons.

As we drove down the country road, we stopped to admire horses on the side of the road and explore small trails. Around every corner is a hidden gem filled with a rich history along the road the leads to the cafe. The cafe is located in the heart of a small town nestled in-between a library and post office.

The kids fell in love with the charm of the restaurant with eclectic decor. Inside there is a large bar and multiple semi-private dining booths giving it a true authentic diner feel. Once we took our seats at a booth, the kids couldn’t stop looking around at all the fun signs and pictures that grace the walls of the cafe.

I started my breakfast with a cup of warm coffee that came in a heart-shaped mug. With every sip of the warm coffee from the heart-shaped mug, I felt like I was sipping coffee again in my grandma’s kitchen. My daughter and I both reviewed the food recommendations on Yelp before coming, and she couldn’t resist ordering the full stack of french toast. Her plate arrived piled high with sugar dusted french toast and melted butter. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I watched her eat the entire plate of french was that good.

I stepped outside of my normal breakfast favorites and ordered the steak and eggs. The thin piece of steak came with a side of eggs, country potatoes and toast. While the steak was not as tender as I would have hoped for it was still a tasty meal to start my day.

The Silverado Cafe offers breakfast, lunch and dinner with “themed” dining days with Taco Tuesday being their most popular dining event. The next time you want to explore a different side of Orange County, then bring the kids for an unforgettable meal at the Silverado Cafe.
