Memphis Café is a Costa Mesa neighborhood mainstay in the heart of the SOBECA district. Soon after opening in 1995, Memphis Café received a “5 star” review from LA Times food critic, Irene Virbilla, and has continued to earn critical acclaim and a loyal following ever since. Classically trained chef and co-founder Diego Velasco has created a distinctive gourmet interpretation of Southern home-style cooking with signature dishes such as the smoky gumbo and pulled pork, ethereal buttermilk fried chicken, savory seafood jambalaya and seasonal specials sourced locally with naturally raised meats and poultry. The roadhouse style bar at Memphis offers both classic call and crafted cocktails as well a carefully curated beer and wine list.

Open 7 days per week for brunch and dinner with happy hour Monday – Friday from 3-6 p.m. and late-night entertainment Thursdays – Saturdays. Valet parking available for weekend brunch and Thursday – Saturday evenings.
