Welcome to Casa Laguna Inn & Spa
Operated as a tranquil alternative to bustling family-style resorts, Casa Laguna Inn & Spa is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a relaxing escape from work and worry. Built on a terraced hillside in the 1920s and 40s, today’s Casa Laguna is often compared the to the Mission-style villas of Spain. In order to assure a romantic, calming ambiance, room occupancy is limited to a maximum of two persons regardless of age. Accordingly, our inn would not be suitable for children, infants, groups, or events. Our guests can relax on a garden patio, schedule a massage and therapeutic soak, or take a picnic to nearby Victoria Beach. Our inn is only 1.5 miles from downtown Laguna Beach shops, restaurants, art galleries, and renowned summer art festivals. Public transportation is available just outside our door. Our inn is famous for fabulous gourmet breakfasts. We have been recognized as one of the Top 25 Small Hotels and Top 10 Hotels for Romance in the United States, as well one of the Top Ten Luxury Inns in the world. Read more...

Coconut Flax Gluten-Free Pancakes
The batter for these delicious pancakes contains six different gluten-free flours, but don't think they are just for Celiac sufferers. They are loved by all. This recipe is featured in Episode 4 of our YouTube cooking show, Breakfast Casa Laguna Style with Chef Sarah.
Introduced by Chef Sarah Spry Keenan on our Winter 2013-2014 menu, the initial recipe was made famous at Tartine Cafe in San Francisco. Chef Sarah serves this stack with brown butter caramelized pineapple, cool fresh Kiwi, and a sprinkling of toasted coconut.
Recipe makes 12 – 4″ pancakes
▪ 1/3 cup brown rice flour
▪ 1/3 cup white rice flour
▪ 1/4 sugar
▪ 3 tablespoons potato starch
▪ 3 tablespoons tapioca starch
▪ 3 tablespoons coconut flour
▪ 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
▪ 2 teaspoons baking powder
▪ 1/4 teaspoon salt
▪ 3 large eggs, room temp
▪ 1 1/4 cups milk, room temp
▪ 1/4 coconut oil, melted, plus more for the griddle
▪ Fresh fruit and real maple syrup, for serving.
Combine all you the dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk until well blended. In a separate larger mixing bowl add the eggs and milk, whisk well until the frothy. Add all your dry to the wet, whisk until just combined. Slowly add the coconut oil, mixing gently until incorporated. Let batter rest for 10 minutes while you heat the griddle. Use coconut oil to grease griddle and start cooking pancakes.
Chef's tip: Don't guess or estimate the flour measurements. Measure exactly--with measuring spoons meant for dry ingredients--to create the perfect flour blend.
