Easter Brunch @ Plum Cafe

I just want to share a new place to eat in the Newport/Costa Mesa area of Southern California. BF found this place by chance a couple of months ago. Since then, there were many good eats at this little cafe. We started Easter Brunch with orange juice, coffee and mimosa.
BF ordered the deep dish pancake. We were very curious but just didn't have a chance to order this as there were so many goodies to eat. After he got his food, he had this where-is-the-rest-of-it look. The pancake is about 3 inches high, just like a dish. It's very flaky and soft and super delicious with powder sugar and lemon juice.
I ordered smoke salmon hash with poach egg with hollandaise sauce ~ fattening but oh so good. At least I got plenty of veggies with my dish. BF was kind enough to help me with my food. Poor man, I sometimes feel he is my personal trashcan since he doesn't like to waste food. Let me ask you, who usually gets stuck with the leftover?
