There is just no bakery like this one! Everything is so well done and that means done like your GREAT Grandma made it. Yes, we did eat there more than a few times. The food is good but the prices have gone up to a level as if it were fine dining in a beautiful setting, which is it is... More

Great food. Good size portions. Excellent service. Unbelievable menu choices. Very reasonable prices. Decor is a bit dated. Bakery, deli, bar, take out and restaurant, what more could you ask for?

My wife brought me here for my birthday to have brunch. She chose it because it had good reviews and we live fairly close. The booths were a little beat up and old but overall my breakfast meal was delicious. I'd compare it to iHop but better. On our way out the manager wished me happy birthday and gave me... More

This was obviously once a very good restaurant and they still get a crowd. However unless they upgrade management and service, the crowd is going to go away. Maybe we just went on an off day but I detect serious management issues. We went on a Saturday and at an off hour which was 5:00 PM. There was a 20... More

This independent establishment had a great menu. Food is served in a modern and tastefully decorated series of dining rooms. The menu choice was wide and varied and everything ordered was top quality in terms of presentation and more importantly taste. I also used the Deli which had a wide range of savouries and sweet things to choose from. I... More

I love going to this place. It is busy and the food is always good. I generally sit at the counter and the service can be on or off depending on the server and the number of people. But Saturday the special soup is Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup. And it is awesome. I generally get a cup of soup... More

I've been coming to this deli for 20 years and I still love it. The restaurant is consistently good, but its their deli that defines them. Everything is so well done, from their meats and salads, to their cakes (which taste homemade...not bakery fake). They're catering department is efficient and will make your life so much easier. Their custom cakes... More

I've had Katella's baked goods as gifts but had never stopped into the restaurant until this morning, Wow!! First it's a full deli--think New York, upper east side....and bakery again, think NYC....and then you've got a darn cozy restaurant with neat booths and levels to give you an intimate dining experience on one of Los Alamitos busiest roadways. It's comfortable... More
