As with so many iconic places in Los Angeles, here's another "one-and-done". There are hundreds of pieces of memorabilia, lots of cute posters, trinkets and cards to buy. And the old soda fountain remains to remind people over 40 of a bygone era. Having tasted...More

I have never ordered the kitchen sink. It's a "family" kind of business, so they are probably pretty easy on those details. It's a fun and funky place. So Pasadena is a great neighborhood
