Fresh Cinnamon Bread Loaves in the O.C.?

I am in dire need of freshly baked cinnamon bread and I don't know where to go to get it! In Los Angeles I could get it at Gelson's Market, but here in Irvine I haven't had any success. If anyone in orange county has a love for freshly baked cinnamon please give me some pointers. It would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Frozen Yogurt near Marina Del Rey

Well I dont know about you but I will drive as far as necessary for good frozen yogurt and my favorite spot in my hometown LA is Sparky's Frozen Yogurt on Main and Navy. I am a loyal customer that has been supporting their buisness for over 16 years and I'm only 18. They were first located in Pacific Palisades (south of Malibu, north of Santa Monica) but the rent is pricey and hardly any buisness ever remains for more than a couple of years except for the buisnesses with sky high prices (this did not include Sparky's. Anyways, they moved to Santa Monica and now that I am located in Irvine because I go to UCI, I have found another great frozen yogurt place, Golden Spoon I think this might even be better than Sparky's but luckily I dont have to really choose betweent the two. I drive back up to LA almost every weekend to see my parents and my dad and I always go to Sparky's when I come back. My favorite flavors are pistachio and pumpkin which are seasonal but my dads top choices are always there -- chocolate and raspberry! Great memories! Enjoy.

Taco Rosa in Irvine

Just ate at the Taco Rosa in Irvine for the first time. I thought the food was excellent. I had the Arizona burrito-- gigantic proportions-- blackened chicken with sauteed vegatables (spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes) yummo. Also served with black beans, guacamole, sour cream and lovely arrangment of large sliced carrots just delish! The girl across the table from me had a quesadilla which was of enormous proportion as well but looked tasty. Another dish at the table was the special for the night...lobster enchiladas said to be very good as well. These dishes $10 each but well worth it. Ask for guacamole and chips--so good. They also bring out a mini appetizer sampler to start. I enjoyed the night!

Ethiopian in West LA?

Fairfax blvd is the best place you can find a good number of them right next to each other. My favorite is Marie's! Excellent service and prices!

Good Eats for College Students in Irvine?

I just recently moved to Irvine California from Los Angeles and am looking for good healthy food that is resonably priced since college is enough money on its own! I do have a car so I can drive out of town if the restaurant is too spectacular to pass up. Let me know, thank you!
