Cashew Chicken Salad

Soooooooooooooo good! We ordered a dozen sandwiches as half of a box lunch picnic we had for a birthday (other half (14) were Club Sandwiches). Both absolutely the best! Chicken salad was very special and tasty and Club Sandwiches the best I've had! They didn't skimp on the bacon!! Whole meal was served 6' apart and everyone wore masks and took sandwiches back to their cars to eat. Covid 19 Picnic Delux!!

Mexicali Scramble

My favorite breakfast when going to Friends Cafe...I always order it with the Quinoa and fruit...Love the eggs...the perfect amount of spices in the chorizo... Avacodo is a major plus, with a touch of sour cream...Yummy We love this restaurant and eat there regularly...Chef Jeff and his staff are the best.

French Toast Royal

Stop scrolling and order this now! I'm not being dramatic when I say it's so incredibly delicious. I am a huge French toast lover and also picky and this is one of my favorite French toast in all of Orange County. Its fluffy, warm and the filing inside is a sweet blueberry cream cheese goodness. YUUUUM! You won't regret it, enjoy!

Tuna Melt

The best tuna melt sandwich i have ever had! I work next door at the salon, and i finally tried Friends Cafe for the first time. Amazing food, and amazing customer service! This is going to be dangerous for my wallet and stomach!

Florentine Scramble

I came for quick weekday lunch with friends from work and food was so good, I came back for weekend lunch. Everything is delicious but my very favorites are the florentine scramble and frisco burger with onion rings. Best onions I have ever had!

This dish was absolutely amazing! Every ingredient is fresh and tasty! The food came hot and every bite was savory. The whole experience in Friends Cafe is definitely worth going to over and over again. My son plays sports at this park and I don't know what I look more forward to; watching him play or enjoying a good time at Friends Cafe!

Real Buttermilk Pancakes

Love this place! The pancakes were perfect, cleaned my plate. My sister ordered the breakfast burrito and I had to steal some bites. Went another time and ordered the club sandwich, my husband stole my plate!

California Benedict

The California Benedict is wonderful. The eggs were cooked perfectly, the hollandaise sauce is the best I've had and the bacon and avocado really add to this dish over classic benedicts. I highly recommend this plate!

Avocado & Bacon

Yesterday was my first trip to Friends Cafe and I ordered the Avocado & Bacon omelette with hashbrowns and a biscuit on the side. OH MY GOODNESS. It was so good. My friend really enjoyed his Cali Benedict, too. Neither of us were in a sharing mood because our dishes were too good to share. Also, the service was great. Everyone that came by (and the chef visited twice) were friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended!

Eggs Benedict

I usually save this special dish as a "vacation" dish - something I order while I am enjoying some time off. But I needed some comfort food and ordered this yummy egg dish, with the crispy hashbrowns. I walked in a little stressed and walked out feeling happy. What more can you ask for in a plate of eggs :-) And to add to a great lunch with a friend was a super wait staff ... everyone pitched in to make this meal a nice experience!

We have made Friends Cafe a regular stop for our weekends and special week days. Chef Jeff greets us by name and is always there for a friendly conversation about whatever the subject of the day brings. Friends Cafe is truly a small town family place where you can feel like home

1/2 Sandwich with Soup or Salad

My water arobic teacher told me about Friends. The best blueberry pancakes ever. The burgers are big and juicy. The salads fresh and crunchy. I could eat at friends every day. The owner and staff are delightful. Down to earth, fun people. Thank you for a delicious, fun dining experience 🥰

Breakfast Burrito

I got this with avocado instead of meat - it was SO good and I took the leftovers; it too me three meals to finish it because it was so large. I love love love the tomato Florentine soup, chunky and full of flavor. The zucchini appetizer is also good, the ranch dressing here is the best!

Eggs Benedict

Although I like everything about Friends Cafe , I will rate one dish. The eggs Benedict is quite good. The best part is the atmosphere. It's nice to go in to friendly people. We have our favorite server and adore Geoff😊

Eggs Benedict

The BEST I have ever had! This is one of my favorite dishes. I have had Eggs Benedict from restaurants in San Francisco, Beverly Hills and Laguna and your's is the very best. We come to your Tustin location often. Everything we have had has been exceptional. So happy you've located near us.

Best Restaurant Ever!

Hard to pick one favorite since I have a breakfast favorite (Mexicali Scramble) and lunch favorites (1/2 sandwich and soup). Actually, every time I try something new, I like that, too!!

The waitress, who was extremely friendly, recommended this dish, and I must say it was absolutely delicious! My fiancé and I just moved to the neighborhood, so we decided to try your restaurant, and we are so happy we did! We will definitely be back!

California Benedict

I recently tried the California Benedict and it was amazing! The eggs were perfectly cooked and the yolks oozed out when I cut into them. The bacon was super crispy and the avocado added a perfect balance. The hash browns were the perfect side for this dish!
