Looking for a nice Sunday champagne brunch in Orange County.
A lively environment would be a plus. A nice view wouldn't hurt either.
Las Brisas in Laguna Beach - not a buffet but good with a nice view - make reservations
Spaghettini is Seal Beach has live jazz and has an excellent buffet, but it is not cheap - make reservations
Coyote Grill in South Laguna is funkier and non-traditional (I get the enchiladas and eggs), but the food is good and the Bloody Marys are excellent. Champagne would be ala carte
Lastly Break of Dawn is usually heralded as one of the top places for breakfast in OC, but it is in a strip mall, and, again, everything is ala carte, including champagne.
You can't really go wrong with any of these

I would add TAPS in Brea. AYCE with a seafood bar; stations for waffles, pasta, omelets; bananas foster and a ton of other desserts. Champagne or (I think) two of their house-made beers are included. The vibe would definitely qualify as lively.

We just had the brunch at Sol Cocina. They had a live band playing that qualified as lively. The food is great there. The crowd is very umm.. newport. Could be good or bad depending on who you are.
