Best of Corona Del Mar Top spots for an amazing breakfast  Southern California Dining Guide  Beachside Vacation Rentals
Hi Beachside blog readers, we’ve got another edition of Best Breakfasts for you! Whether you are looking for a quick bite, a new favorite, or some classic scrambled eggs, the Southern California Beach town of Corona Del Mar has some of the best breakfasts in the Newport Beach area!

Best Baked Goods

Sweet Lady Jane
3732 East-coast Hwy
Corona Del Mar, CA 92625

This sweet shop is tucked away in a corner on PCH, just a few minutes from Corona Del Mar State Beach and Little Corona Beach. With a menu that boasts triple berry cake, oreo cake, and hummingbird cake (spiced cake with pineapple and banana) as well as classic breakfasts like French toast and buttermilk pancakes, Sweet Lady Jane will keep both your sweet tooth and breakfast cravings satisfied! One of the best parts of Sweet Lady Jane is their late hours as well (open until 10:00 pm Sun-Thurs, and 11:00 PM Friday-Saturday). If you are craving sweets and baked goods later at night, visit Sweet Lady Jane!

Best Healthy Breakfast

Zinc Café
3222 E Coast Hwy
Corona Del Mar, CA 92625

Looking for a beautifully crafted breakfast before a big day of shopping at Fashion Island? A cousin to the Zinc Café in LA’s art district, CDM’s Zinc Café offers a wide variety of deliciously healthy options, a wide range of caffeinated beverages, and the quaintest environment! Other than the sparse parking, this vegetarian gem is one of our favorites because it accommodates people with a variety of dietary needs. Try the avocado toast, Matcha green tea latte, or French baguette-a twist on the classic French toast. Zinc is also known for great customer service and ability to work with customers’ dietary preferences. Are you vegan and looking for a delicious breakfast? Try asking for avocado toast without the egg. Gluten intolerant? Try the asparagus omelet! In a happening place like Corona Del Mar, finding delicious food that meet dietary preferences should be a breeze, and Zinc makes that a reality!

Best Budget-friendly Breakfast

Rose Café and Bakery
3536 E Coast Hwy
Ste C
Corona del Mar, CA 92625

If you are staying at one of our Corona Del Mar vacation rentals , and want to saunter over to a casual and affordable breakfast location, look no further than Rose Café and Bakery . It's just a few blocks away from our vacation rentals on Jasmine Ave, and past guests have told us about their pleasant vacation memories, dining at Rose Café. Here you will find young families gathered for a morning meal, friends catching up over a burrito and coffee, business workers grabbing a quick bite to eat, and the most helpful and friendly staff. With refillable coffee, superb bagels and burritos, quaint outdoor seating, and breakfast favorites starting at $6.25, Rose Café and Bakery is a crowd favorite. Beware of limited metered parking. Sometimes, it is most helpful to park near the beach and walk. But if you catch Rose Café at a good hour (non Sunday mornings), parking should be easier!

Best Bagels

Bruegger’s Bagels
2743 East Pacific Coast Hwy
Corona del Mar, CA 92625

Bruegger’s is another local favorite, located right off of PCH, along with many of our other breakfast favorites. One of our favorite things to do in Southern California is to pick up a bagel and drive to Inspiration Point Corona Del Mar for an early morning hike! Bruegger’s is casual and affordable, and offers a variety of classic bagel and bagel sandwich options. Try their seasonal coffee flavor (like French toast), any of the bagels that are fresh out of the oven, or chocolate bagel with strawberry cream cheese (a crowd favorite).

Best Waffle

Location varies

Let's be real, waffles aren't just breakfast food. A good waffle is always welcome at any time of day, and Waffle-icious serves up some seriously good waffles.Waffle-icious creates liege waffles, offered  with a variety of toppings and additions. Depending on the day you'll also find some exquisite specialty waffles like the Fluffernutter Waffle, Carmel Apple Waffle, and Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwich. Check their menu for more mouth watering waffles!

Waffle-icious doesn't have a fixed location because they're based out of a food truck. Check the Waffle-icious website for a list of upcoming locations. If Waffle-icious is booked for a private event on the day you're craving waffles, check out Bruxie.

Best Benedict & Best All Day Breakfast

3330 E Coast Hwy
Newport Beach, CA 92625

A good eggs benedict is truly of the best breakfasts in the world, and Rendez Vous is known for its mouthwatering benedicts. If you've never tried a breakfast benedict, Rendez Vous is a great place to start, and if you're already a benedict fan, don't miss this awesome breakfast location! Rendez Vous serves their breakfast menu all day, so no matter when your craving strikes, Rendez Vous is ready to serve up something delicious.

Rendez Vous is an authentic French bakery and cafe, run by a French couple, and visitors rave about their delectable brioches, macarons, and coffee drinks topped by Chantilly cream. The location is small, and can be crowded, so be sure to arrive early on weekends. There is a private parking lot in the back, and street parking is also available.
