The Breakfast Venue with a Killer Menu
Need the perfect stocking stuffer? Nothing says "I want to treat you to something special!" like a gift certificate to Marston's Restaurant in the Bridgeport Marketplace. Marston's was voted "Best Breakfast in California" by Food Network Magazine with good reason; actually, make that delicious reason! The Works french toast is topped with fresh berries, candied pecans and whipped cream; underneath all that goodness are two thick slices of sourdough dipped in egg batter and rolled in corn flakes. Craving savory? Try the Ciabatta Breakfast Sandwich, two eggs, any style, served on ciabatta bread with bacon, spicy jack cheese and tomato served with special potatoes.

A Delicious Start to your Day

Loaded with eggs, potatoes, and your choice of chorizo, bacon, machaco, or veggies, the Breakfast Burrito at Chronic Tacos reminds us once again why this is the most important meal of the day. Really want to start your day right? Order it Chimichanga Style or wet.


A Stress Free Christmas Day with this Buffet

Don't let holiday stress consume you; turn the tables and consume something delicious instead! Our suggestion: the Christmas Day Buffet at Vines Restaurant in the Hyatt Regency Valencia. This annual gourmet feast includes holiday favorites and their famous festive desserts. The Buffet is open from 11am to 6pm; reservations are required. 678-4044

Fabulous Fusion is All-you-can-Eat Worthy
Everything you love about Mexican food combined with everything you love about sushi makes Xevichez the place for everything you love! The Aguachile Roll is always a favorite, featuring crab sticks, avocado and cucumber, topped with more succulent crab and smothered in a tangy aguachile sauce that will leave you craving it for weeks to come. For those who like it spicy, try the El Patron roll: tempura stuffed with spicy tuna, deep fried, and topped with yellowtail, avocado, cilantro, jalapeno and eel sauce. For a menu featuring items this delicious, ordering all-you-can-eat is highly recommended.

Celebrate Memories with Seasonal Cocktails at Sabor
Sabor Cocina Mexicana's new seasonal cocktails were created in the spirit of old holiday memories; create new ones while sipping on these fine drinks! The Hibiscus Mezcalito is fashioned from 100-percent agave reposado mezcal, hibiscus syrup, pomegranate and fresh citrus. The Gin Lavanda is a refreshing mix of Tanqueray gin, muddled lavender, fresh lime and lemon juices and... serranos! The Moda Vieja de Manzana unites Stillhouse apple crisp whiskey, sweet vermouth, bitters and fresh apple. And we can't forget our new favorite, the Pear Mojito: Absolut pear vodka, orange liqueur and freshly-made sour mix. 259-9002

A Special Treat that's Perfectly Sweet

Out of Christmas gift ideas? Let them eat cake... specifically, a Bundtlet Tower featuring three delicious bundts from (You guessed it!) Nothing Bundt Cakes. Every sweet tooth will be satisfied with delicious flavors like White Chocolate Raspberry, Red Velvet and Lemon.

A Gift that's as Sweet to Give as to Receive
The gift you deliver is the gift you receive! When you purchase $100 in gift cards from Salt Creek Grille, you get a $25 gift reward for yourself! The only difficult part is deciding what day to go: Half-Priced Bottle Mondays, Tapped Out Burger Tuesdays, Wine Down Wednesdays, All-American Tito's Thursdays, or Live Music on Fridays and Saturdays. The easy decision is ordering the Chocolate Ganache Souffle for dessert served table side.

Your Personal Pastry Chef is a Call Away
If there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's that Pinterest lies. No matter how many adorably-detailed holiday checklists you print out, our money's on things still feeling like a scramble. There's no reason why you have to opt for a panic purchase like grocery-store pie, though. Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co. has a pastry chef that is as sweet as her eponymous Meghan's Famous Chocolate Layer Cake. She'll whip up deliciousness for your spread like Lemon Bars, Six Layer Coffee Toffee Torte, Carrot Cake Squares and more with just a phone call.

This is what Holiday Dreams are made Of
Why make it rain this holiday season when you can make it snow? There's nothing more magical than watching your favorite people sledding upon layers of freshly-made, fluffy snow; making snowpeople; tossing snowballs and making snow angels at your home or business. Newhall Ice Co. can turn your little slice of SCV suburbia into a Winter Wonderland that you and your crew will never forget.
