Let’s be real – California is FULL of amazing brunch restaurants, but there are very few that have a 4-star+ rating on Google. Here are the top three places that everyone in the area is raving about:
1. Orange Hill Restaurant
6410 E. Chapman Ave, Orange, CA
In the wise words of Google, Orange Hill Restaurant is an, “Upscale hilltop venue dotted with koi ponds & waterfalls, with a New American menu & long wine list.” In October of 2015, the restaurant kicked off a new Saturday brunch experience featuring an A La Carte Menu. On Sundays from 9am-3pm, you can join them for a unique, champagne brunch experience.
Bonus Tip: Their Sunday Champagne Brunch was voted #2 Best Sunday Brunch by Orange County Register Best of OC.
2. Plums Café + Catering
369 E. 17th St, Costa Mesa, CA
Google claims that Plums Café + Catering is a, “Bustling spot for Northwest-inspired fare like Oregon pepper bacon, hazelnut pancakes & wild salmon.” And get this – they serve breakfast all day, seven days a week! Between having several different breakfast specialties to choose from and the ability to make reservations in advance online, Plums Café + Catering makes for one of the most delicious and convenient OC brunch hot spots, hands down.
3. The Hangout Restaurant & Beach Bar
901 Ocean Avenue, Seal Beach, CA
The Hangout Restaurant & Beach Bar is a, “Casual, surf-themed American cafe with burgers, sandwiches, breakfast fare & panoramic beach views,” according to Google. Brunch is served from 7am-noon Monday – Friday and 7am-2pm on Saturday and Sunday. The food is affordable yet scrumptious, and who can complain when you’ve got a beautiful view of the beach to accompany your morning meal?
