We happened upon this place by happenstance as we the restaurant next door was closed on Mondays. Lucky we were, as we stepped back in time to this delightful, old-style diner... Think 1950-60. Malts, shakes (about 30 flavors) but we opted for root beer float. Yum! Add an order on scrumptious onion rings, a cheeseburger and corned beef hash and... More

A retro diner with friendly service and good food. We had burgers, sweet potato fries, a BLT with avocado (this is California, after all), all tasy. I thought the egg cream needed more syrup, the black and tan sundae was so good. Lots of stuff to look at on the walls and ceiling, vintage music.

Food is very good, we had an omelet an French toast, both were delicious. Service was good, very friendly, but not the fastest in the world, so don't go there if you have to be elsewhere soon.

Wow! What a surprise! We were returning to our hotel, looking for a place for dinner and zipping past all the big national names when we spotted Cafe 50's on Santa Monica Blvd. Great food, excellent service and a very cool 50s vibe. Even our teenage son loved the 50s feel. I was thrilled to find they served breakfast all... More
