Sidewalk Cafe Photos


From the Thelma Todd fans group on facebook.

Rob Wlodarski: Love the current state of Thelma's grill inside the remodeled restaurant.. spared from demolition!

Adam  Tunney:
They preserved a LOT, including the original floor in the Tower Room (they built a false floor on top of it to allow visitors an ocean view whereas in Thelma's time, the windows were too elevated). Even the refrigerator where oysters and clams were sold to beachgoers is still intact. I wish it could still be identical to the way it was from 1934-1935, but a lot was already changed when the new owner took over and a lot of necessary renovations had to happen.
