Fodor's Review

A legendary hangout, this place serves up burgers that locals justifiably worship, plus potpies, traditional fountain drinks, and tasty pies (especially peach, pecan, and peanut butter). There are only a few tables, but you'll be treated right at a long counter filled with astrophysicists from the nearby California Institute of Technology.

OVERPRICED o.k. food

If you expect to be ripped off for a greasy burger, generic fries, and o.k. service eat here. The Pies and Cakes are tasty but also way over priced. I didn't expect to pay $20 for cheeseburger, shared fries, and a pie. OVERRATED!

local hangout - fading fast

This is an old time coffee house where regulars come ... local firemen and neighborhood folks where the customers know the wait staff and cooks. The food is not inspiring and moderate in price. No frills! If you chose to sit on the counter - DON'T sit under the vent!!! it's got dust all gunked up on it.
