La Grande Orange Cafe Restaurant Review

: It took an Arizona-based company to give Del Mar Station, a historic Spanish Mission-style train depot, new life. At La Grande Orange Café --- “LGO Station Café” for short --- big vintage lanterns hang from rough-hewn ceiling trusses, while polished wood, Southwestern colors (with a touch of orange, of course) and candles warm the room. The enclosed patio, with its fountains and fireplace, is among the prettiest in town. The menu showcases appealing comfort foods, along with vegetarian options and some Mexican-inspired specialties. Deviled eggs, a spunky rendition with six halves laid out on a long wooden plank, are a fine way to begin, followed by barbecue pork ribs, rotisserie chicken or a reserve Angus filet mignon. For dessert, it is hard to beat the red velvet layer cake. Microbrews and a short but serviceable wine list are offered, plus a signature white sangría. The bar, with its specialty cocktails, is a lively hangout, and immediately next door, in what was once this train depot’s luggage room, is another LGO restaurant (appropriately named The Luggage Room) featuring a short menu of pizzas.
