LOCATION IN 1967
"We moved in at the end of 2010.It had been a marijuana dispensary right before us so even though the pizza sign was visible in the photo from 2007, there was no evidence of a kitchen or anything like that remaining when we moved in in 2010."

"That photo must not be from 2009. I can see that 2020 is cut off at the top of it...the cafe didn't have that big arch on the top in 2009.  When we moved out in 2019, the top of the space was white but this looks like a more recent photo, even though the marquee has been painted red."
