Everybody loves a good brunch, from omelettes to french toast, and Orange County has a brunch spot for everyone!
Wake up craving something sweet? Then head over to Stacks Pancake House in Irvine – a 10-minute drive from La Vita at Orchard Hills, this delicious spot has cornered the pancake market with a fun Hawaiian twist on a classic dish. Try their famous macadamia nut stack with homemade coconut syrup or bring the kids and get their fruity pebbles french toast, a colorful treat you’ll need a photo of before you dig in.
Looking for a wider variety of dishes in a cool location? Try Crave in the eclectic arts district of Santa Ana. Here you can find a host of brunch options that are not only delicious but many of which are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Go the healthy route with the fresh acai bowl or indulge in their crème brulee french toast, a local favorite.
Keep it casual at Rooster Café in Costa Mesa, where they cook eggs to perfection and have classic items such as huevos rancheros and two egg breakfasts. You can also try the nearby Old Vine Café, a hidden gem that serves favorite dishes with a twist, such as the seasonal pumpkin pecan french toast, the reuben omelette and a rabbit mole, equipped with a side of fresh baked cornbread. Added bonus – both spots are close to the Huntley at Greenwood in Tustin.
And finally, if you want something extra special on a Sunday morning head over to The Beachcomber Café, a seaside restaurant with a relaxed vibe. Located on the beach in beautiful Crystal Cove, the food is great but the location is what makes this restaurant noteworthy. Enjoy a fresh fruit crepe or classic eggs benedict while watching the waves crash along the shore.
Now that you finished breakfast, make sure to stop by the brand new homes in Orange County and take a tour—you might not want to leave!
