A dinner I’ve passed while traveling north on I5 for years finally stopped by during a business trip. All locals, waitress knows everyone’s name. Very much an old greasy spoon dinner. With so many locals in here, I was a little to self-conscience to take a picture of the food but it was the same as all the other canned hash, see Sara’s Coffee Shop

Themed after the Luna park amusement park from 1909, this 1950’s style diner with decor to match the era. The walls and floors were crowded with nostalgic decoration. While the food was typical greasy spoon fare, it was a fun restaurant to visit just don’t expect anything special from the food.
