Tiffy's Family Restaurant
1060 W. Katella Ave
Anaheim, CA 92802
A week ago I reviewed Farrell's in Mission Viejo. As you recall I was not a real fan of their food, but the ice cream tasted great and it really brought back a lot of memories. Farrell's had reminded me of Tiffy's Family Restaurant, which is located right across the street from Disneyland. I had been there one time about a year ago, and since both Katie and I were renewing our Disney passes, and both of us wanted to eat outside of the park it seemed like an ideal time to see what was going on there.
So the picture above shows how empty the place was. We were one of three tables that had people at them in this huge restaurant. I thought that was funny at seven o'clock on a Sunday night, but Disneyland was not too crazy packed either, so hopefully it is not because the place has bad food, let's see how everything turned out.
Here is Katie's Tuna Croissant Sandwich. She really enjoyed this sandwich. I thought it was okay, I'm not really too much of a fan of tuna, but the bread was soft and the tuna tasted like it should. The fries really came out hot and crispy. Pretty average tasting plate though.
Here was my San Franciscan burger. This burger was served on sourdough bread, and had lots of onions. Very good and greasy half pound burger. The cheese somehow got lost on this burger, and was almost unnoticeable. This burger is a decent coffee shop burger.
This tasty morsel above is the main reason to make the trip to Tiffy's. The owners of Tiffy's are dairy farmers in Oregon, and they make their own ice cream. This was a brownie sundae with chocolate/peanut butter ice cream and vanilla. They were far more generous with the hot fudge, than Farrell's was. The ice cream tasted rich and creamy, and had a great consistency. Well worth the $8 price tag for this dessert, enough for three people to share.
So Tiffy's is an okay coffee shop, but a really good place for dessert. I read a lot of reviews on Yelp about this place and a good majority of them were negative. But to be fair to Tiffy's a lot of those people were getting prime rib and fish entrees, not exactly coffee shop faire. I say if you are going to have a meal at Tiffy's, stick with a burger or sandwich and definitely save room for dessert.
Out of five globs of hot fudge, five being best to zero being worst, Tiffy's Family Restaurant receives 2.5 globs of hot fudge.
