Haven Gastropub

190 S. Glassell St. Orange, CA 92866 | Orange | 714-221-0680

Location Description:

The Orange Circle-long the dominion of doilies, fragile antiques and that once-a-year excuse for public beer guzzling and drunkenness called the International Street Fair- has been yearning for a watering hole like Haven Gastropub, a place designed to tap (pun intended) into the annual gathering's core demographic of lovers of beer and merriment. Beer is the cure-all here, the preferred beverage of the house, with the burger our choice of food for soaking up the booze. Served with rosemary-blasted fries, this towering sandwich has a patty accounting for most of its height, a nicely stinky St. Agur cheese melted into it, peppery arugula, roasted red peppers and a surprisingly well-executed tuft of pickled onions that make for a grown-up burger rivaling that of the Counter or 25 Degrees.
