One of the more overtly restaurant-y outposts of the New Old Lompoc brewery empire, the 5th Quadrant—along with next-door neighbor Pix Pâtisserie—was among the first businesses to anchor the now-booming area around North Williams Avenue and Failing Street, currently home to everything from the Queen Bee purse factory to foodie-approved Lincoln. The Quadrant's tall booths and covered patio aren't necessarily worth a trip across town to experience, but make for an excellent beer-and-burger Saturday afternoon if you live in the neighborhood.
