>It is really sad that the Costa Mesa Omelette Parlor will be closing its doors in 6 days — Memorial Day is their last day after 27 years in business. I came here with a friend today to experience it one last time, just for old times sake and to just be supportive of this OC institution. Since it was close to lunch time I ordered their French dip. Usually, I’ve had breakfast here, but today I really didn’t feel like it. Omelettes are what they are really famous for — huge hunking portions worthy of even the biggest appetites. They have a house-made apple butter which is also really yummy, not too sweet so it appeals to me. Even as I write this I am saddened that big corporation (Vons namely) is kicking them out to make room for an expansion which tragically doesn’t include the Omelette Parlor. So for this posting, I will not accompany it with a photo of food, but rather a sign at the entry way I took a photo of. For all you fans out there, follow them on Facebook and be the first to know if they find a new location, or decide to close all together. But until the 31st, I hope those of you reading this will go and eat there one last time — it’s the right thing to do!
