Cafe 50’s ~ Los Angeles

Ever in the mood to go back to the 50's? Perhaps go on a date with Pinky Tuscadero or perhaps go back in time to sock-hops, derbies and 45 rpm records being played from a jukebox.

Well Cafe 50's is just that spot. The latest location of the LA-based mini chain opened four months ago and located across from LACC. This diner will definitely take you back to the 50s with classic shakes, fountain drinks, and burgers. It is a throwback to the era of the "All American" wholesome family and when greasers, as seen in the movie Grease, were the teen rebels. The whole place is plastered with 50's memorabilia such as posters, album covers, vintage soda pop signs, "I Like Ike" buttons and wall-o-matics.
