Memphis Caf is a small, stylish establishment nestled in Costa Mesa near South Coast Plaza and its painfully-cool smaller sibling, The Lab. The building has a unique, angular look that seems somehow modern and retro at the same time, but

Soooo good! Food is wonderful, staff is friendly, and it's a nice casual atmosphere. I ordered the special for lunch - Filet Mignon tacos. They were to die for! I'll definitely be coming back soon.

Memphis is right next to The Lab and easy to miss. It's been there forever. First thing they bring you is cornbread and it's delicious. They only have about 10 entrees but you can't go wrong with any of them. Prices are reasonable.

You could easily drive right past this place, but don't! It's a funky little place that will surprise you, because the food is great! This is some of the best southern food that we have found in OC, you'll love it!

This is a great place to go if you are in a hurry on your lunch hour from work, but still want to sit down and eat. The staff is friendly and fast and there is a wide variety of food on the menu. The place is small but it has a cool vibe to it.

Pros: good after hours

Cons: service

Many mistakes were made by the kitchen. Instead of being gracious and fixing them the staff was argumentative and rude. During our meal the manager and waiters stood at the end of the bar and gave dirty looks to our table and talked

Went here with my bf last night - and the food was amazing! We both decided to order several items and share - great idea! I sampled the Memphis House Salad - which was terrific, and the candied pecans really complimented the salad well!

to get away from the soul numbing confines of chain restaurants in Orange County. We ducked in on a weeknight for a late dinner, a difficult task in O.C. where a lot of restaurants close by 9pm. Hip retro dining room. The pork

It's been a while since I've been, but Memphis was a great place for lunch when I was working in Orange County in 2000. Burgers and sandwiches are top-notch, and it's a great place for an after-work drink. Have a peach cider on the patio

Pros: Small but fun, Patio

In Short
The small tavern is elegant despite its divey exterior. Inside, a bartender mixes up stiff drinks for regulars while couples cozy up to warm heaters on the candlelit patio. Memphis' menu is more Southern-inspired than…
