The Sycamore Inn, providing food and drink to travelers on old Route 66, since before there was a Route 66. This Rancho Cucamonga, California landmark first opened in 1848. On the menu for Thanksgiving 2012: A selection of 29 wines by the glass, a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, or filet mignon, prime rib or salmon. Served in the main dining room at tables with white tablecloths and ancient wing backed chairs on casters, squint your eye and you might see an old sour dough miner celebrating a gold strike.

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.
