CAFE 50’s11623 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles CA 90025
When it’s time to treat the kids—and yourself—to a meal out, bring the whole family to Cafe 50’s in Sawtelle, where chocolate malts, poodle skirts, and doo-wop live on. Your children will smile the second they step inside, as will you when you see the amazing “blue plate specials,” which include comfort-food classics like meatloaf, southern fried chicken, and grilled pork chops. This entertaining diner does all the work in keeping the little ones occupied, with colorful booths equipped with personal jukeboxes and walls lined with ‘50s memorabilia. There’s even a vintage TV set showing classic shows and newsreels. Let the little rascals play Connect Four while you peruse a menu overflowing with well-executed versions of diner classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Target “Pee Wee Wednesdays,” and children under 10 will eat free with every adult meal purchased. Show that you’re a kid at heart by joining the fun on monthly “Wacky Wednesdays,” when everyone wears pajamas to dinner. You’ll get a free meal when you buy a drink, which will almost make the embarrassment worth it. Be sure to pose for photos in your fuzzy PJ’s and bunny slippers, if only to prove to your friends that you’ll do anything for your kids.
