This past Saturday, I made reservations to have brunch at the Grand Traditions up in Fallbrook, to celebrate my mom's birthday! This is my second visit now, and it definitely lived up the hype from the first time. It's a darling old (huge) house, that serves as a venue for weddings, and a restaurant during the day. Isn't it just gorgeous? I couldn't stop this photoshoot session.
As for my meal, I ended up ordering what I already knew I loved, a classic burger with fries, but honestly so wishing I would have gone for a Belgium waffle with strawberries (next time)! Oh, and for a delicious appetizer, you must order their avocado egg rolls.
Now, at the Grand Traditions, you can walk the grounds which has a total of three specific garden walks, the first being the flower garden, a compass garden, and a path for the water front. The first set of photos you see below is apart of the front entrance, known as the flower garden. It's absolutely breath taking in person, and so dreamy for my type of future ideal wedding spot. The back of this house, called the Beverly Mansion, is a big outdoor porch where the restaurant is located, which overlooks a beautiful lake.
UNDER THE PALMS
This is my favorite part of the garden, because it reminds me of a tropical jungle. There are so many waterfalls throughout the entire trail, and they are so beautiful. My sister says this path reminds her of Disneyland, in line for the jungle cruise, but I say it reminds me of Hawaii! Nothing get's me like palm trees, and that deep greenery.
I seriously recommend visiting this darling little gem that's located in Fallbrook, Southern California! For years we never knew something this unique could be found in a funky town like Fallbrook, but we are so glad we did. Everything is set at a reasonable price, so it won't break the bank! Would love to come back for a Sunday breakfast, and order my waffle that everyone made look so good. Plus, all over the ground there is plenty of seating, picnic tables, and benches on every garden path, perfect to take a breather and enjoy the scenery.
Happy Birthday Mom, love you!
