Alta Coffee Co.

 506 31st St., Newport Beach, CA 92663

Beware the Sunday brunch at Alta as it tends to get crowded. Still, there’s a reason locals flock to this hipster-esque coffee spot each morning. Fresh scones, muffins and egg dishes are as tasty as they are perfect for pairing with Alta’s signature vanilla chai lattes, espressos and cappuccinos with extra foam. If you’re a real regular, you can even leave your mug behind so you have a tiny piece of home waiting for you the next time you visit this warm and cozy neighborhood spot.


Balboa Lily’s

711 E. Balboa Blvd., Newport Beach, CA 92661

A dog friendly Balboa Village brunch option (the patio is for the pooches) with farm fresh ingredients and a quaint atmosphere. The honey lavender latte is always a morning crowd-pleaser (the chocolate ganache mocha also never disappoints) and at $12.50 for an elaborate make-your-own omelet special, you really can’t beat the prices.


The Cannery

3010 Lafayette Rd., Newport Beach, CA 92663

Every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. enjoy waterfront views and bottomless champagne with the purchase of an entrée. The Cannery is known for its seafood, so if you’re in the mood for clam chowder, lobster roll or smoked salmon, this is the brunch choice for you.
