Mother's Market & Kitchen

1890 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627 | Costa Mesa | 949-631-4741

Location Description:

Those uninitiated to the Mother's Market vernacular will find the menu's glossary helpful. There are definitions for terms such as TVP (textured vegetable protein), soyrizo (a soy-based version of the spicy Spanish sausage) and seitan (whole-wheat protein). Asterisks indicate something is organic. A heart icon means a dish is vegan. You won't need to refer to it, however, when you read the restaurant's roster of all-day breakfast dishes. Here, fried eggs, omelets and roasted potatoes are featured on plates that could pass muster at a real meat-eater's diner. The salsa that comes with the huevos rancheros could burn a hole through the plate. And even covered in non-dairy gravy, the biscuits for the country breakfast would satisfy a long-haul trucker from the South. For lunch, we would argue that no greater tuna melt exists outside these walls.
