old lunch place in the Century city mall.
there used to be a joint i guess it would be late 80s and possibly early 90s that served sandwiches on croissant and served an asparagus soup in coffee or tea mug. it wasn't with the other food court oddities. anyone remember it, and better yet was it a chain of cafes.? i think it was basically soups and sandwiches on gourmet bread, at least for the time, a definnite precursor to all the cafes, urth, coral tree, et al.
I remember that place too. If it is the place I am remembering they had the best cheese croissants. I used to work at the Broadway and would stop in there to buy on before going to work. Don't remember the name of the place. I worked at the Broadway until around 1982 and the diner was there.
