I've been driving past the Colima Cafe for decades and have long been curious about it. I know that it's been mentioned on this thread before, and that it's been around for ages under the same name. I ate at the Colima a couple weeks ago and took a couple of photos. Here's an outside shot taken from the south, and a photo of one of the murals inside. The interior isn't especially old looking or remarkable. The Chicken mole was "ok". LAPL has a Colima menu listed but it's just a few years old and doesn't mention the history. Would like to know more about this place.








Oh, re Guy McAfee, I know that he's been mentioned a few times on this thread. About a month ago I posted an old L.A. Times article about him getting his nose busted.
