After Burrell's and a couple of Santa Ana Mexican taquerias, Ramos House is probably the only restaurant left in Orange County that operates in a living, noisy neighborhood. Its southern-fried breakfasts–fried green tomatoes topped with goat cheese is the most imaginative spin–are a Capistrano Valley institution, the bitter Bloody Marys Orange County's best. But it?s the comforting cinnamon beignets that make the long Saturday-morning drive and the one-hour wait all worth it.
