Having Sundays off rocks! I have had a string of them off recently, and could not be happier. It gives me a chance to try some breakfast places that I have been hearing about. So I rounded up my girlfriend and parents and headed to Rooster Cafe in Costa Mesa.
This place is about as simple as their web site. We arrived at about 10:30 and the place had a steady stream of people coming in and out. So lets see if these people are coming for the food.
My Mom started with the Double Espresso above. She really enjoyed this. I, on the other hand am not a coffee drinker, so I abstained from trying this. I really liked the picture, so I wanted to include this though.
We might as well talk about what my Mom ate first. She opted for the Early Riser. Fried egg, bacon, mayo and cheese on grilled sourdough bread. Simple, but delicious, and at $3.99 it was a steal. When a breakfast sandwich at McDonalds can cost $3.49, this is a bargain and better tasting also! This was definitely the right size portion for my Mom also.
