Need OC Champagne Brunch for Sunday

Hi. I am looking for a Sunday brunch place in Orange County for a small birthday gathering of approx. 8 people. The Hacienda is booked up and I don't think that I can handle the wait at Ramos House. Do you have any ideas? An all inclusive brunch would be great or just an a la carte brunch with a bottomless mimosa option would work well also. Food is the priority, but a nice atmosphere would be great as well. Any feedback would be great!

  1. I know that both Orange Hill and Orange County Mining Company have endless champagne for their brunches, and the views aren't too bad either. Orange Hill has a big patio you can eat on overlooking the city.

      Went to Orange Hill recently....pretty but the food was meh.

    2. Arroyo Trabuco Golf Glub has a pretty decent brunch, with carving stations, etc. Also try: The Beach House in Dana Point (nice view, ok food), Las Brisas in Laguna Beach, Cottage in Laguna Beach.

        Went to Arroyo Trabuco and was very pleasantly surprised. Oysters, crab, prime rib etc. I think for $25 or so.

      2. If you are seafood people, Rip Tide in Mission Viejo has a bottomless champagne brunch. They have breakfast items but the focus is on fresh seafood, crab legs and sushi. Not one of my personal favorites since I'm not a seafood person, but the people I want with easily ate their share of $29 per person in seafood.

        1. If North OC is fine with you guys, I'd suggest Taps in Brea - $32/pp for buffet brunch and bottomless bubbly. Good seafood and standard breakfast fare.

          The French75 in Newport Beach also does a decent brunch -- I think it's also around $30/person for 3-courses and a bottomless bubbly also (you may also order a la carte), but call & check.

            Ditto Taps. Love their HUMONGOUS oysters in season.

              I agree, Taps is great for brunch. Also Taco Rosa has a steal of a brunch. $15 a person, bottomless champagne. Best deal around imo.

            2. The Harborside in the Pavilion in Newport Beach has a Champagne Buffet from 10-2 on Sundays $22.95 /person

              Newport Landing just along the boardwalk also has a Sunday Buffet lunch . 10-2 $25.95 . I think they have champagne accompanying.
