Episode 12 features Gary Mead, Jr. of Mead’s Green Door in Old Town Orange. Not to give away the secret (I swear if you take my corner table I’ll find you) but Mead’s is the best hidden gem in SoCal. It’s an eclectic little cafe with a hipster/artsy vibe serving simple yet amazing vegetarian and vegan staples. Think BBQ cauliflower taco salad, baked sweet potato fries (and chili fries), green smoothies, vegan tofu scrambles, burritos, and scones. Oh, gussy, those SCONES! Breakfast is served all day, there’s always a free table, and unlimited Wi-Fi. Mead’s is a freelancer/college student/foodie dream. Gary and I dig deep into all that is Mead’s, from its family-owned origins to the food that’s made with love. Cliche, I know, but when the pizza is shaped like a heart, the phrase is appropriate. As always, listen, subscribe, rate, review, and share!
