Written By: Kiley Coleman Snooze AM Eatery
They say, “you snooze, you lose, ” but in this case, if you snooze, you win. Open as of July 11, Colorado native restaurant with legs in San Diego and Arizona, Snooze, “an AM eatery” is welcomed with open arms by Orange County locals. Delighted to expand to Tustin, Snooze CEO David Birzon shared, “At Snooze, we believe life is for the living and each person and every day is worth celebrating. We’re so excited to bring our breakfasts to Tustin and give back to the local community via our philanthropic partnerships, ” he continued. “We can’t wait for Orange County to wake up to Snooze!”
Southern California is famous for its brunch. It’s a nostalgic event you can share with your family or friends. Snooze isn’t just your typical breakfast and brunch menu, though. They take it to the next level—from the interior representing a combinations between the Flintstones’ Bedrock City and The Jetsons’ Orbit City, to your mimosas coming in a Pilsner glass, Snooze changes up your breakfast game.
When we say some of the dishes at Snooze are life changing, we are not exaggerating. Snooze encourages custom creations and combinations to end the eternal brunch dilemma of sweet or savory. One of the amazing options provided, is being able to pick and choose different food pairings. Can’t choose between the Chilaquiles Benedict—barbacoa beef over a stack of ranchero sauced tortillas, melted cheese, roasted poblano hollandaise, pico de gallo and one cage free poached egg—or the Bella! Bella! Benny!—stacks of thin slices of prosciutto, Taleggio cheese, poached eggs, cream cheese hollandaise on top of toasted ciabatta drizzled with a balsamic glaze? Feel free to place a half order of each dish.
With six different eggs benedict choices, each with some of the most unique hollandaise options around, you’re never going to tire of these delectables. With over ten different options on the Sweet Utopia side of the menu, the pancake flight is a chance to get the sweetest tastes of three pancake favorites. A french toast flight is another plate of perfection to consider. Some of Snooze’s favorite picks are the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes that load up buttermilk pancakes with caramelized pineapple chunks, housemade vanilla créme anglaise and cinnamon butter. The OMG! French Toast takes stuffed to a new level—filling Bread & Cie Brioche with mascarpone, and topping with salted caramel, vanilla créme, strawberries and toasted coconut. Native Knowledge: The name of this dish came to fruition because the only words out of people’s mouths after the first bite was a resounding “OMG”.
When looking to go a lighter route, especially now with that summer body in motion, check out the Light as a Feather section on the menu. Snooze takes your same old porridge or Continental breakfast and turns it into a tastebud sensation. Their Quinoa Porridge offers fit fans a delicious blend of oats and quinoa, seasonal berries and bananas, walnuts, whipped mascarpone and a sweet serving of blackberry maple syrup drizzled on top.
Native Knowledge: Don’t forget about the Ahhh la Carte menu section. It offers a great single pancake option when you want to soothe your sweet tooth, soyrizo and tofu for the vegetarian crowd, and a pork tender belly bacon that is to die for.
One of the best parts about Snooze is that they are dedicated to giving back to the community. They support organizations focused on education and sustainability. You will see on the back of each Snooze menu, where its ingredients are from and where their donations are made. One of the non-profits Snooze has partnered with is The Crayon Initiative, an organization that recycles and remanufactures crayons and provides them to children in hospitals. That is a partnership even sweeter than their french toast.
Snooze is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Native Knowledge: Each menu caters to the different state in which the restaurant is located.
