It's hard to describe this fantastically creative menu - except to say that my tastebuds are still craving my amazing breakfast. This exclusive (as in very limited hours) dining experience isn't for the meek or cheap diner. I was treated to breakfast by my foodie employer - and when I first looked at the breakfast menu, I though that I... More

Don't expect ordinary but do expect creative and delicious. This is the place I take my jaded LA friends who think there is no good food in the OC. they are always so surprised at how great BREAK OF DAWN IS.

I with some other reviewers if you want Ihop type food- this is not for you. We had delicious and yes a bit pricey breakfast. But you get what you pay for and we will return the next time we are driving through. I almost hate to tell people to go as It is small and I imagine the wait... More

The food is just amazing,they have such a mix of flavors combined in each dish that makes you fantasy with your meal before it gets to your table. The presentation is very artistic. To bad they don't open for dinner....... The service is great, fast and friendly. A pure joy to recommend this place.

Something new to try but not a place I would come back to. Came here for my sister's bday breakfast with the family and we thought we would try something new. Well I'll only review 3 dishes. I had the French toast brûlée and it was really good. It's sweet for those of you who have never had brûlée. My... More

This is an excellent and unique dining experience. Breakfast is what they do. No lunch. No dinner, although the hours of operation extend into early afternoon. And they do a great job. They take traditional American breakfast fare and give it a tasty Vietnamese twist. It sounds strange but it isn't. Example: they serve a crispy oatmeal pancake topped with... More

I've never had Vietnamese for breakfast, but now I'm going to have to reconsider after our visit to Break of Dawn. First off, how can you beat Vietnamese coffee for breakfast? Can't do it....so I had two! We had the French toast and the oatmeal. Now, I know this sounds like standard "American Food," but it was made with a... More

Break of Dawn, one of my favorite breakfast spots in Orange County has reopened in their new location in the same little strip center as before. The new space is great and has a wonderful, large patio area. The food is the same great, creative Asian/Viet/French/Hawaiian mash up it was before. My father had the beef tongue brisket and if...

Sometimes it gets crowded in this little space but it's worth the effort to get a table. I hadn't been back for some time but last weekend convinced my companion to go someplace other than her "usual." We both had the smoked salmon on oatmeal pancake with poached eggs. It was wonderful. Now I want to go back for some... More
