Owl Cafe

A diner in the shape of an owl! Along Route 66.

[Francine McDougall, 09/02/2020]

Built in 1986, with an interior evoking the 1950s, and an exterior evoking 1920s "California Crazy" roadside architecture... in a 21st century southwestern palette... with neon. It may be an earth-toned echo of authenticity, but Route 66 travelers don't seem to care.
