There are a number of places.
The Lazy Dog Cafe has locations in Orange, Irvine (Irvine Marketplace, near BJ's) , and Westminster. You can sit on the patio, even have cocktails, and they have (overpriced-but hey, you have the big guy with you) dog treats like chicken breasts and burger patties.
You can sit outside at Break of Dawn and eat really well for breakfast or lunch.
I frequently see people outside at Brussels Bistro with dogs, but they have to be well behaved because the crowd is right there.
I like the Sundried Tomato Cafe (there are others in the chain, but I have only been to Laguna). The have lots of outdoor seating and good food. Cocktails on the patio as well.
Cafe Zoolo gets a lot of dogs.
Fashion Island on the whole is dog friendly, but the restaurants won't let you bring the dogs on the patio. However, I often see tables with the dog next to them just on the other side of the railing. Daily Grill is the place that leaps to mind, but you may be able to do it at other places as well.

Fashion Island is dog friendly as a mall, but most places I know with a secured patio (fenced, planters, etc, will only allow the dog on the outside of the fence while you sit on the rail. For a well behaved dog, that is not a problem. Mine will just work his way inside the gate all meal, or whine to get in.
Great thread. We'll be in Laguna Beach, with the "hounds" soon, and it's nice to know we can take them occasionally. We've enjoyed Carmel for that reason (and others) at times.
