Cafe at the End of the Universe (LA Observatory)
has anyone eaten there?
A first quick take on this cafe from a visit today:
service - poor to fair
sandwiches - fair
salads - fair to good
desserts - good
view - very good (when clear)
Ate there the other day. The stoves weren't working so there was no hot food, just salads and sandwiches. I had a chicken sandwich that was three times the price of a Subway sandwich and one third as good. My girl friend had a salad that was no better.
alison, here's a direct quote from the observatory's site:
May I bring food or drinks into the Observatory?
No. Food and drinks are not permitted in the building. You may purchase food and drinks at the Café at the End of the Universe.
Are there picnic facilities available?
No. Food and drinks are available from the Café at the End of the Universe.
Not sure how one can rank service when this place is essentially a self-service restaurant.
As I recall, nothing great, but nothing terrible either. I think we got a hot dog plate, which is $5 with chips. It's hard to screw up hot dogs.
The restaurant at Getty Villa is better. But these aren't destination restaurants, just some place to have a convenient bite to sate hunger.
