“Always a great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Have had many lunches and dinners at Cedar Creek and never, ever disappointed. Nice salad selections at lunch and good choices for dinner for meat lovers as well as those, like myself, who enjoy lighter cuisine. Very nice atmosphere and beautiful, large outside patio facing Mission San Juan Capistrano.

Beef dip and apple sauce are excellent! Like the Cobb salad too! Friendly bar. Love to sit on the patio in the Spring and Summer.

“Great patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Terrific lunch menu and outside eating just a short walk from the Mission. I had an excellent salad and desert. My luncheon pals also enjoyed their lunch. The ladies were impressed but, this is not one of those places that cater to the typical ladies'the lets do lunch" bunch.

“The patio across from the Mission is amazing on a warm day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Got there shortly after they opened as they get busy. Service was very good and the pasta with tomatos, garlic and pine nuts was very good as was the tuna melt.
