Old California and good grub in San Juan Capistrano

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. — What an appealing slice-of-life California town, an easy day trip by car or train. Come for the history, stay for the food. This restaurant-intensive ranch town is the oldest community in Orange County. If San Juan Capistrano — or SJC — had a dating profile it would say: “Self-deprecating, authentic, still likes a good time.”
