With pictures too if you really get hungry!
Thank You again for all the kind words, may the pink restaurant live on!!
yes...if you are referring to the one Charlotte wrote? I have the copy I bought for my mom before she passed away... signed to my mom... may I ask which Belisle you are?

remeber Belisles Rest

I remember Belisle's very well i use to work there in the middle 80's until they closed. I made many great friends who i still see on a regular basis. A friend emailed me this and i am glad he did.

We loved Belisle's! Huge portions, but more importantly the food was delicious.
We were very sad to see it replaced by a chain restaurant.

I totally remember this place. The portions were huge! And I remember they had a huge pancake or a stack a mile high. MMMMM!

One of their old chefs or cooks or something now owns/runs a small restaurant in Santa Ana.

I wrote a review about it today on my website. I'd post a link but since I'm a new member I can't. Just do a google search for Eat in OC and look for my review of Mini Cafe.

Unhappy that is so sad

I haven't been to So Cal in forever, my grandparanets live in Placentia. I was so excited about taking my new husband this weekend on our trip, all this time I think my grandparents just thought that Belisle's relocated and I was trying to find where they moved! I live close to Auburn, CA, and saw someone from the restuarant is there. Is there somewhere to eat in Auburn even close? I am so distraught!
