We each ordered frittatas and could have shared they were so big and delicious.DSC01490Afterwards we wandered around.DSC01497It’s close to a place I used to hang out in high school – Koo’s Cafe, and today it felt like an unexplored gem in Orange County.

DSC01505The hand painted signs are a fascination now, thanks to Joe. It’s the size and letters that make me smile.
