Suggestions for Sunday brunch/breakfast in OC (Laguna/Newport/CM/Irvine)?
We're taking a friend for a birthday breakfast.
Problem is I know all the places in OC and keep hoping that some Chowhound will enlighten me about a hitherto unknown (great) place.
Right now, in consideration we have Taco Rosa Champagne Buffet, Beachcomber, Omlette Parlour, 333 --- but I am not excited.
Any diamonds in the rough out there? (Yes, Ramos House Cafe is out. A bit too pricey.)
Doesn't have to be in a great location ala Beachcomber. But food should be solid and there should be a bit of ambience.

re: I got nothin
Wholeheartedly second Break of Dawn.
It is truly a one of kind breakfast restaurant. The food is outstanding.
Owner/chef used to good at the Ritz. Now I am craving the dish with the merlot poached eggs and the rice/portugese sausage dish.
