serving late/all day breakfast in OC

This brekkie fan has Friday off (who knew some companies celebrate Good Friday?!). After a morning jog and home stuff, I'm looking forward to a well-deserved meal around 11/11:30.
Tustin/Irvine/Newport Beach preferred ~ surrounding cities are fine. Holes-in-the-wall welcome. Worst case, I'll just mosey over to Caffe Panini by SNA for a bite. Just thought chowhounds might have a rec to offer. Oh did I mention I'm trying to avoid meat? But don't let that stop you from sugggesting something fabulous. I'll bend the rules for something worthwhile.
Side Street Cafe in Costa Mesaa is a brekkie dream.
So is Plums, also in CM.
My brekkie guilty pleasure is Earl's Home Cooking in Orange, on Tustin Ave.
How about Zinc Cafe in CdM?
I second the rec for Side Street. Also, the Omelette Parlor in Costa Mesa and Wilma's on Balboa Island would both fill your needs.
Pop's in Santa Ana, a fixture since the '30's.
This is a hole in the wall in which you sit on the sidewalk and can get a barber cut next door, but it is Americana all of the way.
My all-time fave is Plums.
I think Omelette Parlor is pretty cool.
Side street is great ~ just read an article about their cinnamon buns....might need to conduct quality control over there!
It's been AGES since I've been to Zinc.
Earl's & Pop's sound very promising.
Time to Google. Thanks so much.
