Lim’s Cafe is an iconic Redding restaurant located on the Miracle Mile.
I shot and posted this nice sunset image below a few months back, and I see it now posted at Yelp, attributed to somebody else. Well, it is a nice image. Nevermind that copyright stuff. Pesky legalities. Just more evidence that you should always be very skeptical of what you see on Yelp.
Anyway, Lim’s is a classic American Diner serving Chinese and American food.
The kind of place where the waitresses know your name. Many daily regulars.
The menu has stood the test of time. No small task in this town. Thriving for good reason.
Above, a couple of lunch specials. The food comes fast and hot. Reassuring Chinese comfort food. For me, the hot mustard they serve alongside offered a needed spike, but the lovely Karry liked it seasoned just how they bring it out. That works.
Arriving in Redding from the north would be an altogether different experience without the warm neon glow of the Lim’s sign to let you know you are indeed home.
Located at 592 N Market St Redding, CA 96003, Phone number (530) 241-9747. Generally open daily 7 am to 9 pm.
