Breakfast in North OC

We're looking for a good weekend breakfast spot anywhere in North OC.

Our usual places are Arthur's on Harbor in La Habra, or Polly's Pies in Fullerton. We like the Original Pancake House in Anaheim but don't like to wait that long. Heroes in Fullerton is not great for breakfast and serves way too much of it.

Prefer homey type places, not chains.

  1. We have always enjoyed the Blackboard Bistro in Seal Beach on PCH. Great omelettes and awesome homefries.

    1. Schooner or Later in Long Beach is Awesome!! Right on the water in the Marina. There is a huge line during the weekends though. But if you have never been, you gotta go!

      Schooner Or Later
      241 N Marina Dr, Long Beach, CA 90803

      1. The Jagerhaus, on the 57 and Ball Road.

        1. Our go-to used to be Kimmie's Coffee Cup. There are two locations: Fullerton on Commonwealth near the airport and Brea on Brea Blvd (btwn Imperial & Bastanchury, next to Arco). We like the food there, but the service is hit or miss (more miss than hit). There's usually a wait on Sundays for good reason: the food is solid. Our preference was the Brea location only b/c it's closer to home.

          Also in downtown Fullerton is Branagan's the "Irish" pub, Stadium Tavern (similar to Heroes) and the Brownstone Cafe (the last two are in the same building. All are good, but Kimmie's is a touch better; the three in downtown Fullerton have better service though.
