La Habra Heights Cafe’s owner and staff are Mexican, which makes their tweaks to American standards not only delightful, but delicious. Their carne asada omelet, for instance, isn’t just a nod to Latino customers but perfect—egg fluffed to a wispy heartiness, cheese oozing off of it, with carne asada chunks worthy of a 2 a.m. burrito from Albatros. The ribeye steak breakfast plate is quintessential diner nostalgia, but even better is the machaca breakfast plate, which is just as American at this point in our Southern Californian lives. And what signifies the melding of the old and new OC and LA better than a breakfast burrito? Here, they’re large enough to put in a swaddling cloth.
