LOCATED AT THE OC MIX, COSTA MESA
& THE ANAHEIM PACKING HOUSE
OWNER LEONARD CHAN
Waffeliers and beer aficionados alike rejoiced when Founder Leonard Chan brought The Iron Press to Orange County, serving mind blowing sweet and savory waffle sandwiches and specialty local and imported beers. The Iron Press delivers with their out of the box creations and playful menu. They provide a fun and interactive dining experience with music, art, food and libations. At Costa Mesa’s SoCo location, guests can sit at the bar stools and watch the waffles made right in front of them. Their second location, open at The Anaheim Packing House offers welcoming patio seating and the same variety of waffles, but their own outstanding rotating selection of craft beer.

Waffles and beer! And some other incredible items (we're talkin' fried chicken and more) that need not be out-shined by their amazing predecessors.
