Original Pancake House in Orange--somewhat overrated though and busy. I like Citrus Cafe in Tustin for Breakfast, get a lot of food for your money

Hi plainjohn, I use to live in Southern CA prior to our move to SC. Since everyone's idea of typical is different I am going to provide you with some of the places we use to enjoy.

RUBY'S DINER (50's style - chain - various locations)

OMLETTE PALOR (Costa Mesa - have not tried but have heard that it is very good)

ALICE'S BREAKFAST IN THE PARK (Huntington Beach - just as the name implies...right within the park - http://www.stockteam.com/alices.html)

HOF'S HUT (small local chain, the Los Alamitos location is where the original Claim Jumper was started)

this next one is not in OC but right next to the OC border, located in the Long Beach Marina

SCHOONER OR LATER (www.schoonerorlater.com - great outdoor seating)

Try Rubys in Irvine. It is on Barranca Parkway, but sits High over the street and overlooks the Lake in woodbridge. You can take a walk around t he lake after breakfast.

I prefer the Park Bench Cafe on the other side of Huntington Central Park over Alices anyday ...It is the outdoor cafe where you can take your dogs too..as seen on Animal Planets "Most Extreme" series....best breakfast in town!.. www.parkbenchcafe.com

Schooner or Later is another favorite...as well as Alices Breakfast in the Park....

All outdoor eateries with character and the "homemade" factor!
