S & J Gran Cafe

We happened upon this place via Yelp when boyfriend and I were looking for new brunch places that were on the other side of the county (and not LA county) since we planned on attending another event in Orange County. When we went, parking was very easy to find since the location was inside a plaza so the parking lot was huge (but shared with other residences). We walked up to the host table and decided to sit on their outside patio so never got a chance to see what the inside looked like.


It wasn’t busy just yet until we sat down then a hoard of people started filling in, but our waitress was still able to get to our table in a timely matter. I ended up ordering an Egg White (+$0.99) Vegetarian Omelette ($8.49) filled with zucchini, green bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach while the boyfriend ordered their Florentine Benedict, both came with a side of home fries and toast (sans toast for me). I was very impressed with how much vegetables they stuffed into my omelette, it was HELLA filled to the brim. Although the thing I noticed off was that the veggies weren’t cooked thoroughly enough that almost all of it were undercooked and left the omelette very crunchy and hard to eat (crunchy zucchini, tougher textured mushrooms, etc.)

I did think the value was very affordable  though, I’m used to $10-$12 vegetarian omelettes and this place was under $9.00! The boyfriend thought the Florentine Benedict was pretty good as well, enjoyed his hollandaise sauce then he relatively selective when it comes to his hollandaise sauce on his Benedicts, but vegetables were also a little undercooked. Just unfortunate that nothing that was mind-blowing. Their home fries were decent, but were a little harder and crispier side that I’m not too fond of.

It’s a great option though for those that are looking for a place that’s affordable and decent in quality when it comes to breakfast/brunch type kind of food. 🙂
