Orange County restaurant brunch buffets and a la carte Orange County brunches. Whether you’re here in Orange County on vacation, celebrating a special occasion or just ramping up for a week at work, Orange County restaurants have a bounty of Orange County Brunches to chose from.
Brunch at AVEO Table + Bar is now offered every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
With the introduction of its new Chef de Cuisine, Donald Lockhart, AVEO Table + Bar moves away from its brunch buffet to a curated à la carte menu. Together, Executive Chef Collin Thornton and Chef Lockhart have created a menu that masterfully blends flavors from all across the Mediterranean.
Standout dishes on AVEO Table + Bar’s new à la carte brunch menu include Crispy Belly Burger with ground sirloin and a slab of maple-glazed pork belly; Peekytoe Crab Cake Eggs Benedict; and Nutella Crunch French Toast topped with rum-flambéed bananas.
A sharable seafood tower, made-to-order omelets, mobile Bloody Mary cart, and free-flowing beverage upgrades, popular hallmarks reminiscent of the former brunch buffet, will remain, adding an element of extravagance to AVEO’s new weekend brunch. Guests will also be able to select from over 30 exclusive bottles of premier champagne from the AVEO cellar.

Habana’s brunch menu is available at their Costa Mesa location and is offered from 11AM - 4PM on Sundays, weekly. Chef Alex Moreno will be the mastermind behind the early weekend menu at Costa Mesa until the awaited secondary location at the Irvine Spectrum opens. Before we know it, Moreno will be at the helm of the kitchen in Irvine preparing far more than brunch for us to enjoy. If you’re unfamiliar with Habana’s Cuban brunch fare, we’ll put it simply -- flavor explosion. Unique spices and sauces grace every plate and complement traditional Cuban proteins such as roasted pork and more. To put it briefly, this is a brunch for the books and one you won’t want to miss.
