Sean & Pamela's very late Lunch at Cafe Orleans! (440pm)

table service at Cafe Orleans

We've been wanting to try the new menu at Cafe Orleans since it reopened with the new table service menu. The photos below were taken at our inside meal and include some photos of the rehabbed inside dining area.  So far the restaruant is proving to be very popular with it's new menu and it's easy to see why. Be sure and make reservations if you're wanting to try the place out..  SeanYoda posted his review on the Disneyland live journal community.  You can read his review by going to this link here: Disneyland Dining Review: Cafe Orleans 16 July 2006 as the post is public.

Our last meet of the day was LP's  "OC Dean" Cove Bar meet with Laughing Place friends as well there was a "Mice Chat Meet" that seemed to be having a co-mingling schedule as well.. Cove bar, then to Hearthstone, then to Lost Bar.. (2 drinks and lots of water and diet soda for S&P.. ) Photos taken at the official meet:

"Scar" &  friends

We had a really great time.. eventually our meet host did show.. (no pix sorry) Dean & the gang traveled to Hearthstone for some coffee drinks, mellow conversation and a what seemed like an internet chat board take-over of the mellowest lounge around.. (NFFC, mice chat,, to name just a few.. ) We're not sure if they were expecting so many of us on a Sunday evening..  *grin* SeanYoda & I shared the infamous warm brownie sundae ala mode as well a couple coffee drinks, then a few of us headed to Lost Bar where the disney board fans dwindled to about  a handful of folks and the mice chat folks were outside still keeping the pixie dust flowing. We were exhausted though, and had another full day of meets and celebrating to attend  (hopefully) so we dragged our bodies to the dead center of the parking lot (just kidding).  We were dog tired!! =)
