  • Trip down memory lane to The Monorail Cafe

    Recent talk arising on another discussion board about The Monorail Cafe, which closed in August of 1999, prompted me to go looking for the menu we have from its closing week.

    In case anyone is interested, here are the links to the menu.

    http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/D...orailcafe1.jpg - Page one of the menu.

    http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/D...orailcafe2.jpg - Page two of the menu. (Blue plate special!)

    http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/D...orailcafe3.jpg - Page three of the menu.

      Yeah those pix look an awful lot like a menu from a restaurant, not the monorail cafe.

            Try searching threads by "old hotel guy"...one of our top Disneyland Hotel historians round these parts.

                I loved Monorail Cafe. We used to go there often.........I was sad when it was torn down.....I bet if they had tried to save it, the place would still be frequented today.......good times.

                  my first disneyland meal was breakfast at the monorail cafe in 1972. We caught a bite and then headed out for the monorail and into Disneyland. I didn't realise how much I missed it until I brought my own kids back and I couldn't share it with them.

                    We still have some of teh Monorail Cafe kids cups. They are much more "heavier duty" thn teh cups given out at today's restaurants. Practically a sipper cup like you can get for small kids at the store.

                    They had the best ice cream sundaes and milkshakes.

                    After a day in the Park, we'd stop by there and order them up and enjoy them in our room at the DL Hotel.

                    Good times!

                      I used to eat breakfast there before starting a JC shift... best food in the park, even if we had to run after we ate it!

                            If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                              I just miss there being a lot of family restaurants and coffee shops everywhere. Sure, they're still around - Denny's and IHOP are two of the most famous examples - but there was something about the days when you could barely travel a block or two before finding yet another coffee shop/family restaurant, with low prices, simple but delicious food, and a comfortable atmosphere. And that fantastic Googie architecture, never been topped.

                              My all-time favorite dish - a Chili Size at Bob's Big Boy. Best spaghetti & burger patty topped with chili that I've ever eaten.
