Stroll past 16205 Sand Canyon Ave., Suite 110. in Oak Creek and you'll find W Cafe, a new breakfast and brunch spot, offering a fusion blend of European, American and Mediterranean cuisine. This is the second location for the restaurant group, with the original situated in Newport Beach. So far, the Irvine spot has been well-received on Yelp, with a five-star rating out of 17 reviews.

Yelpers praise the chicken basil panini, salmon fish tacos and the Sunrise -- a breakfast sandwich consisting of scrambled eggs, mozzarella, spinach, tomato and garlic aoili on toasted ciabatta bread. (You can check out the menu here.)

After choosing a sauce and soup base, select from an array of protein options like wagyu beef, fresh frog and pork brain to add to the pot. On the vegetable side of the menu, offerings include bean sprouts, wood ear mushrooms, seaweed, tofu, Chinese winter melon and more.
