    I have been here 2 Sundays in a row after church & have gotten the same thing (chicken pesto sandwhich) twice -- it's the best I have ever had... I low-key crave this sandwich throughout my week.. :-)

    Their breakfast sandwich is so good here! They'll happily upgrade you: i.e. add hashbrowns into it.

    The best breakfast burrito I have found in the area. Get it with bacon and sausage for good variety. Salsa on the side is ok but not great, use hot sauce instead. For a drink get the Mexican mocha.

    AWESOME spot for breakfast. Parking might be an issue but their Mexican Mocha is just phenomenal. So sweet and filled with caffeine. And it goes without saying, their breakfast items are all delicious

    Came here twice in less than a week and got the breakfast tacos and huevos rancheros. Both filled me up well into the afternoon! Great value.

    Huevos rancheros. This is a great breakfast dish. A little spicy but just right.

    This Costa Mesa eatery draws crowds mostly for its breakfast burritos, massive bricks too heavy on the eggs and too light on the sharp Cheddar, and crunchy, greasy hash browns but still damn good. Read more

    Pro tip: If the place is super busy, don't sit there for 30 minutes doing a crossword puzzle.

    Such a small place, not enough seats, people sit & read magazines while others are waiting for seats. This is why I don't come here too often.

    Honestly the Early Riser is one of the best restaurant breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. Crispy bacon, fried egg and cheese perfection on a toasted piece of bread. Delicious.

    Rooster serves some of the best brewed coffee in Orange County. No frills, just a good cup to start your morning.

    Aren't Texas things supposed to be big? The Texas breakfast (2 eggs, sausage or bacon and a slice of toast) was SUPER TINY. Left hungry and it was too busy to order more food. Not worth the wait/$.

    Amazing chicken tortilla soup! If you're lucky enough to be there when they have it, get it!

    Hearty Scramble. My suggestion, get the two egg scramble instead, if you're thinking of getting this plate. It's the same price, but ask for scrambled eggs and you get a plus of bacon or sausages.
