Pie ‘N Burger

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 200mm ISO 250 3-bkts f/11 Lr4, HEP2, TpzSim; PsCS6

Pie ‘N Burger has been a locals institution seemingly forever in Pasadena, California.  It is practically next door to Caltec and likely a lot of science and engineering students and teachers  have had either pie or burgers or both there during its tenure.  I ate their once, years ago when Judy introduced it to me, my recollection, however, was one of feeling underwhelmed with both the pies and the burgers.  But it’s a cozy little embodiment of a certain genre.

Mimi’s Cafe, Chino Hills, California.  A chain, but even a chain has its virtues, good breakfasts, muffins and the clam chowder is very decent (when hot and fresh).

Owen’s Bistro

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 10mm ISO 200 1/80 f/11 Lr3, TpzSim; PsCS6

There is a small concentration of Chino, California’s oldest commercial buildings on D street and the two brick structures in this are Owen’s Bistro.  The structure on the left, with the tall openings and drapes is the outdoor dining patio, the building to the right houses the interior dining room.  The fountain and sculpture in the foreground are titled “Internal Bridge Between Earth and Sky”.  (I do not know who the sculptor is.)  More on Owen’s Bistro here and here.

The Hat At Dusk

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 18mm ISO 1250 1/100 f/16 Lr4

Here is another outpost of The Hat (my last Hat post), this one is located on old Route 66 in Glendora, California.  I was out in the parking lot and on the sidewalk capturing images while Judy was inside, getting us a grilled cheese sandwich.  The folks inside were apparently mystified why some guy would be outside taking photos of their restaurant.  Easy answer: The Hat is an iconic roadside eatery with great graphics, and we dig their menu of foods that our medical practioners would tell us to avoid.
