It’s almost Friday, and the first day of spring – hang in there. And since it’s almost the weekend, that means you’re probably already thinking about brunch.
It’s okay…. I know how you roll.
Well, to help with your daydreams, I thought I’d share my new restaurant obsession with you all: Haute Cakes Caffe in Newport Beach, CA.
I’m up in the Orange County area frequently these days (it’s about an hour north of San Diego), and when I am, I’m always on the look-out for yummy new-to-me restaurants. A couple OC bloggers I follow on Instagram had posted about Haute Cakes, and I knew I had to give it a try.
I stopped in last Friday for a working breakfast (they have free wifi- win!), and luckily arrived before they got too crowded. I heard a girl say while I was there that they usually have a line (you order your food at the counter and then they bring it out to your table). Apparently everyone in Newport has a work schedule that lets them go to brunch in the middle of a work day?
Anyways, their coffee was delicious, and they actually have non-dairy milks available. <–Always impressive. Oh, AND they serve breakfast all day!
Instant key to my heart. I just about moved in.
You guys. I literally had to call my mom after cleaning my plate because I was compelled to tell SOMEONE how flippin’ good this stupid-simple breakfast was (and she’s one of the few who will humor me).
Anyways, the sea salt was a nice touch, and they were NOT stingy on ‘cado.
I know what you may be thinking – yes, I certainly could have made avocado toast at home for approximately $1.50 and tried something more creative. But this was raved about on Yelp (along with their pancakes), and I was in an avocado mood. Whatevs.
I’m actually planning to stop there today because I’ll be passing through that area later! Can’t stop, won’t stop.
And with that, I’m off! Enjoy your day!
Do you ever grab breakfast or brunch out during the work week? It felt like a fancy treat to me, because I always make breakfast at home Monday through Friday!
