I'm a hugeee fan of breakfast food. I don't really like eating a whole lot right when I get up, so when I'm feeling like a good breakfast, I'll wait and have one later. These are my all time favorite spots:
Urth Caffe - Laguna Beach
I absolutely love Urth! It's such a fun spot to go and sit outside. My favorite thing on the menu is their pancakes (I always add bananas and chocolate chips to mine). They're teas (my fav is Silent Island) and pastries are also really good. Sometimes they have "bake sales" and sell their huge pastries and cakes for half the price!
The Beachcomber at Crystal Cove - Newport Beach
Beachcomber is super cute, it's right on the sand and it's the perfect breakfast date spot. Love the mimosas there and of course the Beachcomber Beignets (they're a must!). Plus, after you're done with breakfast you can walk around Crystal Cove beach and look at the cottages they have around there!
Lola's Cafe - Ladera Ranch
I'm obsessed with Lola's! If you haven't been here yet you need to go! Lola's is super healthy (tons of organic, gluten free, and vegan options) and has the yummiest and freshest food ever. They also specialize in coffees and teas. I've had so many things on their breakfast menu but my all time favorite is the Egg and Bacon Sandwich (eggs, turkey bacon, cheese, tomatoes and garlic aioli...yum). Their Avocado Toast and French Toast Souffle are close seconds.
Coffee Importers - Dana Point
This little bagel place is unbelievably good. Their bagel sandwiches are my favorite (I always go for bacon, egg, and cheese). It's also in the perfect location to grab something to eat before/after a walk around Dana Point Harbor. There's an outdoor seating area so you can bring your dog with you!
The Lighthouse Cafe - Newport Beach
This place is fairly new and super cute! It's modeled to look like a glass lighthouse. They have an amazing brunch on weekends from 7am-4pm (yes you read that right). One of the best things about their brunch is their bottomless mimosas for $12! Their Cinnamon Sugar Beignets are also delicious.
Tutto Fresco - Rancho Santa Margarita
Amazing Italian place right? But they also have brunch on Saturdays and Sundays (8:30-2:30). If anyone asked for recommendations off their brunch menu, I'd have to recommend the whole thing. I love their K&B Skillet, Bananas Foster French Toast, Eggs Benedict, and Avocado Toast. Not to mention their pour their mimosas into wine glasses (so more for you!)
Let us know any breakfast places you guys love!
