snooze-1

When it comes to breakfast and brunch Orange County will not disappoint you. There is an array of amazing choices; just like the one we are about to indulge in; Snooze an A.M Eatery. So if you and your friends are looking for a new place to try out for brunch Snooze might just be it. It is located in the Tustin Market Place Shopping complex right off the 5 Freeway. The ambiance is very cool, has futuristic elements, lots of bright colors, music, and a 50’s diner vibe. They offer both indoor sitting and an outdoor patio. They key with this place is to put your name of the list before you go in and then they text you with a time to come and check in. However Yelp only allows you to put your name on the list if you are within a 5 mile radius. It gets quite busy on both the weekends and weekdays so that is the best option. But trust us; it is so worth the wait! The outdoor waiting area offers coffee and water for you to sip on while you play with the giant board games.

The menu offers a wide selection of breakfast, sandwiches, healthier options, desserts, amazing pancakes, eggs, and even drinks. So don’t worry there is food for all the taste buds. Down below are some of the dishes we have tried. A personal favorite is the Shrimp and Grits/ with a side of Blueberry  Pancakes! They also offer an amazing Ham Benedict.

But don’t just take our word for it; go check it out for yourself and tell us what you think!

When it comes to dining in Orange County there will never be a shortage of places to try. The list just seems to get longer and longer, but we are not complaining. Our latest discovery has been Cafe Gratitude in Newport Beach. This location is a plant based eatery. It offers amazing juices and a wide selection of cocktails, beers, wine, and wellness shots. There is both a darling outdoor patio and indoor sitting. The decor is very rustic, modern, and has a touch of elegance but never stuffy.

The food is delicious and sustainable. They offer no meat but you wont feel like you are missing out because the flavors are tangy, spicy, and well crafted. I would highly recommend the Eclectic- Buffalo Cauliflower. I have had plenty of Buffalo Cauliflower but this one had to be one of the most memorable. Also the portion sizes here are generous and you are getting good value for your money. In terms of the juices the OC Squeeze recommendation would have to be the Clean: Detox. 

Okay but let’s not forget dessert; The Awakening: Key Lime Pie is hands down our recommendation. This pie had to be one of the best key lime pies that we have ever tried.  It also has a different type of consistency it felt unique. A little nutty if we must say! It made me think of pistacho ice cream.

Give this place a try if you are in the area; and if not they do also have then in different cities such as Beverly Hills, Venice, and San Diego; to name a few!
