I went to three Mother's Markets during my southern California visit: Huntington Beach, Irvine, and Costa Mesa. They are like the story of the 3 bears. Huntington Beach was too small. Irvine (this store) was too big and busy. Costa Mesa was just right.
But, back to Mother's in Irvine. I went there for the juice. They have the same menu as other Mother's, and the juice is delicious with great options, but the store here is just too busy. It was a long wait for the juice...at least 20 minutes. My husband wanted to order a tuna sandwich and was told it would be a 20-30 minute wait. He left and went to Which Wich next store where he got his sandwich right away. Great place but TOO BUSY.
Cons: Too busy, Crowded
