We are a family owned and operated breakfast restaurant. Our Founder, Miguel Perez, has worked in the customer service and hospitality industry for 20+ years. He has long aspired to own his own restaurant, but for years struggled to imagine a concept with soul.
In 2016, Miguel and his wife Jenny, a Registered Nurse, moved into Jenny's grandmother's house to care for her during her last year of life. While sharing a home with a grandmother of Irish/German decent, Miguel began to notice many similarities to the home of his own grandmother of Mexican decent. They watched the same TV shows, they wore the same clothes, they had the same kitchenware and decor, and most notably, they both made you feel nothing but love when feeding you.
Miguel realized the nostalgia that comes from "grandma's house" is not cultural, it is generational, and is understood by people of all kinds. The experience of a meal at grandmother's house, touches the heart in a way that nothing else compares. It was then, the idea for MeeMa's was born.
Miguel has partnered with Chef Hugo Sanchez and his team, to create the traditional dishes you're used to, with an elevated touch. Chef Hugo studied his craft at Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, CA and has experience as a Culinary Producer for major cooking platforms such as Top Chef and The Food Network. He has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the culinary world and we are humbled to have him creating incredible meals to share with you, our guests.
MeeMa's kitchen is held to high standards and refuses to compromise on quality. Our dishes are homemade and sourced fresh from local farms, markets and dairies.
