Stefano’s has a second location in Laguna Hills, California

I have been going to Stefano’s since it was first called Golden Baked Hams. We found it in our Entertainment Book and have loved it ever since. The second generation is now working the business with Chef Frankie manning the kitchen and Alana heading up the Catering and Events. In October 2015, their second location opened in Laguna Hills so South Orange County can now have a convenient location right off of the 5 Freeway. On Saturdays and Sundays starting at 7 a.m., Stefano’s Laguna Hills has a breakfast menu that will knock your socks off.

The interior has a nice open feel with wrap-around windows for lots of natural light and a larger dining room area than the Yorba Linda location.


Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes ($12.50) are served with lemon curd and Crown Maple Syrup. The pancakes are fluffy yet hearty. The ricotta gives it a heavier texture than buttermilk pancakes and adds a creamy richness. The lemon curd and blueberries balance each other with their tangy lemon and sweet blueberry flavors. Rating: 5/5

Golden Baked Ham & Swiss Panini ($9) is made with Golden Baked Ham, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and honey mustard. The thick-cut ham is juicy and has the perfectly balance of sweet, salty, and smoky. The Swiss cheese adds a nutty flavor. The honey mustard adds just the right amount of tangy and acidic flavor to the mix. Rating: 4.8/5

One of my favorite menu items is the Bur-Gini ($10.25). Bur-Gini is a panini made with Stefano’s signature blend of ground chuck, short rib, and brisket patty and topped with roasted garlic, jalapeno cream cheese, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and onions. This is a fantastic burger in panini form. The spicy jalapeno cream cheese, sweet garlic, and creamy avocado and cheese pair well with the beef blend patty for the perfect burger. All the flavors in Laguna Hills are consistent with those in Yorba Linda. Rating: 5/5

If you’re in South Orange County, you really need to see what Stefano’s is all about and see what we North Orange County foodies love about Stefano’s!
