Looking for fun Sunday Funday brunches is one of my favorite pastimes and I recently found a really special locals place right in my own backyard in the heart of Orange County.  Colleary’s Bistro is conveniently located in the city of Orange off of Tustin and Meats in the Target shopping center.

I first started interacting with Colleary’s Bistro on Instagram as their food looked delectable and when they invited me in to dine and share about it with all of you, there was no way I could turn down the opportunity!  The biggest difficulty for me was deciding if I would like breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Since I am a huge brunch maniac and they had such a delicious looking menu of offerings for my favorite meal of the weekend, I head in to Colleary’s Bistro on a lovely Sunday afternoon with my husband.

When entering Colleary’s Bistro, there was a very warm and welcoming family atmosphere. Although there was a large crowd outside and the dining room was jam packed, we were able to make our way to a lovely corner table and get a seat right under the sign that said, Wine Cellar. 😊

Once seated, one of the friendly owners, Jen came to greet us and bring us a lovely round of $10 bottomless mimosas with a variety of different juices to mix and blend with.  The mimosa flight included mango-peach, pineapple, cranberry, and orange juice.  It is only $8 for one mimosa and $2 more for unlimited…so why not? 😊 My personal favorite was the mango-peach juice and the champagne was not too shabby either. Some champagnes give me a headache, but this one was nice and smooth and gave me the nice little buzz to enjoy prior to seeing the movie, It in the theater down the street.

We decided to order a classic favorite of mine, along with two items that blew me out of the water when I read the descriptions. There are quite a few unique brunch items on the Colleary’s menu that I wanted to try!

We of course got my personal favorite, the Eggs Benedict.  As I have mentioned in many articles in the past, this dish is regularly my go to breakfast dish and I am always excited to try it at every new restaurant I visit.  The Bistro Eggs Benedict came with Two large poached eggs over English muffins and Canadian bacon and was covered generously with bistro hollandaise sauce.  It also had a nice large order of their tasty bistro potatoes.  For only $12, this meal was a steal!

We also ordered the classic favorite of the Colleary’s regular customers, along with their entire team, their ever so famous Eggs Benedict Flatbread…and it was quite impressive!  We just had to try this item because it sounded so unique and we were dreaming about devouring it the night before we arrived at the restaurant!  The Eggs Benedict Flatbread was brushed with pesto, then layered with tomato, mushrooms, bacon and mozzarella cheese and topped with 3 poached eggs and bistro hollandaise sauce!! Yum in the tum…Seriously this was the perfect blend of my favorite dish blended with an Italian flare.  This dish is what happens when Eggs Benedict meets pizza and when these two get together, it causes great pleasure for the taste buds! This dish was also $12!

Lastly, we just had to try the Blueberry Ricotta Buttermilk Pancakes topped with Blueberries!  Rather than getting the pancakes for $10 that are a generous serving of 2 large pancakes served with your choice of bacon, ham or sausage, we opted to get the $12 Bistro Breakfast Combo that has everything I mentioned above plus two eggs any style with an additional option of corned beef hash!  We ended up getting the corned beef hash of course! 😊

With the combination of our three lovely platters and never-ending mimosas with a lovely variety of juices, along with a great atmosphere and friendly staff, we had a great Sunday Funday brunch!  We loved all three dishes and even had enough leftovers to serve both of us breakfast again the next day!  We will definitely be back to enjoy the Sunday Brunch at Colleary’s Bistro once again sometime soon.  Warm hospitality, delicious food, and a great location all made our Sunday special!

We also want to head back in to enjoy the happy hour, which sounds absolutely amazing with a variety of $5 plates and it is from 3-6pm every day! They also have something called “Flights and Flatbreads,” which includes a wine flight, a glass of wine, and a flatbread pizza with several different options for only $15! In addition to happy hour, I would like to go to one of their wine dinners as well. As you know from past articles, I certainly do enjoy my wine and paired with good food…That is just pure heaven!  Prices for wine dinners do vary, but check their website to see what events they have coming up soon!
