I LOVE BREAKFAST – Me and breakfast go way back. So when I go to a place like plums and find out they actually know how to make a good breakfast, I get all warm and fuzzy inside. Not only does this place make good food, but it caters to my alcoholic tendencies by offering momosas, which come with a free coffee. Yes, they're brilliant.
I started out with a momosa -- great way to start any day -- and a cup of OK coffee, nothing special. I then moved on to a bowl of their banana brulee oatmeal. This was perfect considering its oatmeal and I don't want it to be overbearingly sweet. I then had the coconut french toast, which was the best french toast I have ever had in my life. I dream about this french toast. It was love at first sight and our relationship is still blossoming to this day.
Service was decent, nothing special.
Come to this place for a great breakfast.
Great OC breakfast – Whenever a friend is here to visit, we bring them to Plums. The breakfast is great, good selection, friendly staff. Get there early on weekends as it gets very busy. A good breakfast place for when you are in the area.
Great place for good breakfast – Plums in one of my fav's for breakfast. The food is great! There are so many unique choices to choose from. It's a little expensive but worth it. You get the amount of food for your money.
Yummy Breakfast – I went here for breakfast and it was so good. I go t the rasberry pancakes and they were the most amazing thing ever! My friends got the salmon hash and they were raving about how good that was (except for the bones in their fish). Only bad thing was it was a little expensive ($3 for a soda). I recommend this place.
Very Classy and clean – my friends convinced me to meet them there. i came early and was impressed by the decor straight away. Service and food were good. I only came to hear later from people at work that this place was well known , and i found out my parents had even gone there. I will definetely be back
Best Breakfast in town! – If you are ever in Costa Mesa you have to visit Plums cafe. I would recommend the eggs benedict or the steak and eggs. You also have to try the bacon and sausage some of the best I have ever had.
My Favorite Breakfast Place – I love going to Plum's. I have to get the Smoked Salmon Hash everytime I go, sometimes a bloody mary, sometimes a latte, depending on how I feel. Plum's isn't the cheapest place to have breakfast, but it is the best. If you want to spend less than $10, reconsider and check out Del Taco's Morning Menu. For a party of two the bill usually comes out to be $35, not including tip. The service has always been quick and I have never had any complaints. I do take into consideration that they are always packed, especially on the weekends, so I know my food isn't going to come out 10 minutes after I have ordered it. Truly one of my favorites in Orange County, always a treat.
great place for breakfast but expensive! – I had one of my best breakfast since I am here in CA. The Spinach, tomatoes and feta omelette was perfect. Usually I do not think feta is the best cheese for omelette because I like melt cheese but this time he feta was exquisitely soft and warm. The little red and yellow tomatoes linked perfectly with the rest and the thaste of the greek olives was genuines and authentics. I appreciated also the Plums potatoes.
The refill of the coffee was awful instead. It tasted as burned and I could not drink it.
The waiting time to be seated was not as long as it was the waiting for receiving the food. In that sense the service was really bad. A part from the service and the bill (too expensive!!) I really recommend this spot.
I didn't eat the Dutch pancake but I saw it and I gonna have it next time for sure!
Try a Dutch Baby – It may take slightly longer but a traditional Dutch Baby is something not to miss out on at Plums. This pastry pancake is larger than the plate it comes on, but a treat you?re unlikely to find anywhere else. Inspired by flavors of the Pacific Northwest, their coconut French toast is also a must when had with an oversized mug of Seattle?s Best Coffee.
Best Eggs Benedict & Apple Sausages! – Plums has the best eggs benedict, with their chipotle hollandaise, and their apple ketchup to go with their breakfast potatotes. Another recommendation is their creme brulee oatmeal- it is like eating dessert. I always get a side of their apple sausages and split that with my husband, and we always order the eggs benedict. I cannot comment on any other dish, as I always promise myself that I would get soemthing else, but cannot bring myself to forego the usual. The long wait on the weekends are worth it! TIP: Do not sit indoors- it is stuffy and crowded. Always eat in their outdoor patio- the beautiful morning sun, a cup of hot tea and a steaming egg breakfast cannot be beat!
