Breakfast in Orange, CA
Too late now, but for next time...
Burger Boy on State College Blvd / Howell Ave in Anaheim for great chicken-fried steak (but get the sauce on the side).
Jagerhaus on Ball Rd / 57 Fwy in Anaheim for fantastic fruit pancakes.
Pepito's on Memory Ln/Garden Grove Blvd and The City Dr S has tasty Mexican breakfast during the week.
Taco Mesa on Chapman and Prospect has really tasty Mexican breakfast at the weekend.
Johnny Reb's on Chapman east of the 55 has quite good Southern breakfast and is the only place I know of to get grits in Orange County.
Arthur's Restaurant. Had some sort of breakfast combo platter before an Angels game that had lots of eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes, and 2 or 3 types of sausages. I was so stuffed that I didn't eat anything at the game, and had a light dinner that evening.
The Original Pancake House in Anaheim is nearby, but I've yet to eat there because everytime I've tried to visit, the wait was at least 20 minutes.

It didn't feel stuck-up at all. Of course, I stopped by for lunch on a Tuesday and there were exactly 5 tables filled, including mine. They were VERY happy to see me :)
I had the ahi salad that was very good, except for the guac filled eggrolls. They weren't bad - just strange. The bread was excellent. Wine list - esp. wines by the glass good. I've eaten there once before ages ago & just remember being pleasantly surprised by the food - and most everything on the menu looked good to me. My only complaint is that you can only get a full bowl of soup - I wanted a cup before my salad & that was not possible. Very good & friendly service for obvious reasons.
