The omelet is one of France’s greatest achievements in the history of breakfast food items. Around the world, omelets are made for breakfast with varieties which include everything from those packed with protein to egg white omelets, veggie omelets and much more. Omelets come with all kinds of fillings, allowing restaurants to find ways to make their omelets unique. Rather than making your omelets at home, ordering them at different restaurants in the Orange County area will expose you to the many variations of the classic omelet.

Welcome to omelet heaven. The impressive menu at The Omelette Inn in Long Beach boasts 18 different kinds of omelets ready to order. With so many interesting names for the omelets, such as “Hang Over,” “Hobo” and “Carnaval,” you may find it hard to choose one, but they’re all delicious. The homeless omelet (Hobo) is a meat lover’s omelet with bacon, sausage and ham, which also comes with bell peppers, green onions and cheese. Upon request, egg whites can be exclusively used for any omelet ordered.

Plum’s Café And Catering
369 E. 17th St., Suite 7
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949 ) 722-7586

This cafe’s omelet could be listed solely for its name. At first glance, the Dungeness crab omelet listed on its menu sounds sinister. What is a Dungeness? Dungeness is just the name of the species of crab in the omelet. There’s also asparagus and dill hollandaise sauce in this innocent crab omelet.
