Fall is a busy season and it can be hard to find time for good meals throughout the day. However, with flu season in full swing and schedules getting crazy, it is important to take the time to eat good meals that fill you up and provide nutritional benefits. These great lunch spots are perfect for a lunch date with a friend, a healthy spot to grab food during the work day or even just somewhere to sit outside and enjoy the seasonal treats.
Looking for that midday stop during the work day? Urban Plates is a great place to go if you want a healthy lunch that’s tasty too! Between their options of hand-tossed salads, sandwiches, soups, ect, there is something for everyone! One of our favorite menu items is the Grilled Wild Albacore Nicoise salad with a cup with the Roasted Corn and Poblano Soup!
Need a sandwich fix? Mendocino Farms is a popular chain sandwich market that is known for their delicious and fresh tasting menu options. The Mendocino Farms in Brea is located on Imperial Highway and is a well-visited lunch spot among Brea residents. They even have wine and beer on tap if you are in need of a little pick-me-up!
Tempo Urban Kitchen
Whether or not it’s a Tuesday, indulge yourself with some of the best tacos in town! There are healthy as well as not so healthy options on the menu, but regardless of what you order, everything is incredible! We love grabbing a group of friends and sitting down here for lunch on Taco Tuesday! It’s a fun atmosphere and has won plenty of awards over the last couple of years. We recommend the Crispy Avocado Taco or the Enchiladas Suizas!
Olive Pit Grill
Can’t decide what kind of food you’re craving for lunch? Step out of the box and go Greek! Olive Pit Grill serves up some of the freshest and tastiest Greek food in Orange County. The reason we love it is because it’s healthy and filling. Olive Pit is nice because customers have the option to build their own wrap, salad or plate. Everyone is satisfied at Olive Pit Grill!
Rae G Cafe
It’s hard to be completely healthy all the time, so take a cheat day and give yourself a treat by stopping by Rae G Cafe on E Imperial Hwy. The sandwiches are hearty and packed with loads of meats, melted cheeses and toppfix-ins. One of our go-to sandwiches is the Pastrami Panini. The best part about these sandwiches is you can either eat in the cafe, or you can easily take them to-go!
Of course, these are not the only great restaurants in Brea! For more advice or tips on places to go check out our other blogs on the site today!
