Junk decor.

Junk-Coated Restaurant

The front two sides of the Golden Harvest restaurant are covered with figurines, signs, flowers, and other kitschy stuff (My favorite: a Bart Simpson figure sitting on a unicorn). It's a good thing -- the place is tiny inside, and customers wait outside in line until there is room for them to be let in. Inside, the walls are covered with more stuff (movie posters, collectibles, signs), the music is loud, the staff is friendly, and the food (breakfast/brunch) is fresh and good. It's in a mostly industrial part of town, but the place seems to stay busy with a good variety of folks coming through.

From the street, this little eatery looks someone turned on the crap super magnet. We approve of that approach to decoration.
