Study: Black Market Bakery

I recently discovered the Black Market Bakery and I love it. The bakery offers delicious, reasonably priced coffee, sandwiches, cookies, cakes, puddings, tarts and other treats to satisfy your sweet tooth. They even have “Bean to Bar” chocolates, which I haven’t sampled, but sound like the perfect fusion of chocolate and more chocolate. Aside from great food and drinks, there are plenty of tables and a solid free Wi-Fi connection. The CAMP has lots of parking available and a myriad of restaurants in the complex if you need a break.

When: Mon-Thurs 7am-7pm, Fri-Sat 7am-10pm, Sun 8am-6pm

Food: Tomikawa Sushi Bar Restaurant

With Valentine’s Day steadily approaching, I thought I would recommend a great spot to take a date or yourself. This sushi place is amazing. As in, the sushi is fresh, tasty, and all around great. In my humble opinion, Tomikawa just may have the best wasabi in Orange County. The booths are great for dates and the sushi bar is perfect for taking yourself out. If that isn’t enough to convince you, their happy hour is phenomenal and happens twice a day! As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words….
