The Bagdad Cafe<br>Newberry Springs, California: The Mojave Desert, California, United States of America
: Eat-Drink; Landmarks.
You may recall the film Bagdad Cafe...something of an arthouse hit. Well, this is the Bagdad Cafe, until recently always known in the real world as The Sidewinder Cafe. The newest proprietress, seen standing outside her venue, changed the name back to the Hollywood interpretation. Seems appropriate, given the proprietress was once part of the film industry.

Good eats, pleasant atmosphere, nice folks.

I just want to know if the cafe is still open. I plan to visit again this November

Hmmmm...that's an excellent question, to which I have no answer.

If you do find out, I'd be delighted if you'd post it here.

I went there last week, with my two brothers on a trip from LA to Vegas, good shakes and really friendly service, I think I recall them serving buffalo burgers too
