Cafe Capistrano, 31752 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano. Open daily, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (714) 493-0607. A cross between a truck stop and a country kitchen, this place exudes the kind of small-town, western flair that attracts customers with cowboy boots and turquoise jewelry. Be sure to sit by the window for a view of the mission and great people watching. And ask for the Capistrano Omelette: peanut butter, apricot-pineapple preserves and bacon.
