Fullerton is a suburb in Orange County with a medley of restaurants, has its own community college, and even has a university (California State University, Fullerton). I was surprised it was large enough to have a small airport, and last week was even more surprised that the airport has a cafe serving up breakfast and lunch!
Opened daily from 7:00-2:00, this Wings Cafe reopened in October 2015. It is located off Commonwealth, at the entrance of the Fullerton airport. There is a marquee outside on the grass.
The room is decorated in authentic airplane motif. When you walk to the front door, you’re greeted with a neon blue “strip” which looks like a runway. The restaurant is divided into 2 sections: the lower section is in an enclosed patio like area with booths, and you get a closer view of the airport. The upper section is elevated, not as bright, but you can still view the airport. We chose the upper area, as the booth was bigger.
The menu had a variety of items, from your traditional breakfast eggs, meats, pancakes and even cereal, to lunch items from sandwiches and salads. I chose a traditional ham and eggs, but added a Belgian waffle instead of hash browns or toast.
Stephen couldn’t decide between a County Fried Steak or their Corned Beef Hash, and chose the latter. Instead of potatoes, our server suggested the chunky apple sauce, and it also came with toast.
The service was excellent. Our coffee cups were never empty, and it wasn’t bad. It wasn’t the best coffee I had, but it was decent enough diner coffee for me to get a refill or two.
Prices were fair, averaging $10 a plate. Portions were more than adequate, and the servers and owners were friendly. We would definitely come back again.
