Reviewed January 21, 2013

Stopped in while traveling with work colleagues, based on strong Yelp review and was rewarded with a quick, tasty, comfort-food extraordinaire and an amazingly upbeat friendly staff! It's just a hole in the wall place with just two or three tables, so don't go for the ambiance, but the food is delicious. Moreover, as we reviewed the board and planned our orders, no less than 3 patrons picking up their orders paused to rave to us about the soups (especially the pea), the sandwiches, and of course the signature ham and egg burrito. That's a really good sign! We each tried the ham burrito, and the friendly staff were willing to customize them for us, without a blink.

Try this place, it's fun! They also sell a mean bacon and chocolate cookie!

My wife was skeptical at first and I couldn't blame her. Ham 'n Scram is an assuming shop on the corner of a strip mall off the side of the highway. Without a friend to point the way or all the reviews from another rating site, I doubt you'd even give it a second glance. But as the owner, Forest, proclaimed, "once you come in, we've got you". And they had.

The entire restaurant probably sits eight comfortably. The service counter takes up half the floor space. We read the breakfast burritos were without fail the best in Orange County and it lived up to those very high expectations. The home made salsa was fresh and light which complemented the greasy but delicious burrito. For health addicts this is not! But for those willing to take in some bacon, every bite is an explosion of delicious. Best breakfast burrito I've had hands down.

The other thing we ordered was a bacon, ham, egg, English muffin which I ate slightly deconstructed. It was also very good but something tells me that had my three year old not torn through it and eaten most of the English muffin it would've been even better.

Forest was very friendly with us even though we were strangers among friends. Nearly everyone that came in was a regular Forest called by name. He was inquisitive with us but was not invasive or annoying, he came off as genuine and just proud of his food.

In a nutshell, Ham 'n Scram is unassuming comfort food at its best. And Forest has a down to earth personality that belies this jewel of a breakfast nook.
