[Los Angeles]: College Court Hi Ho Cafe, Circa 1940. 8-1/2" x 5-3/8. Bifolium, [4] pp + card of "Chinese Specialties". White paper printed in black and gold, with a gorgeous Art Deco illustration to the cover. Foot of spine slightly split, Chinese menu card paper-clipped to second leaf. Very Good.

Menu likely from the College Court Hi Ho Cafe on Wiltshire at Westwood, in Los Angeles, which featured a sliding glass roof and dancing every night, according to the 1934 issue of UCLA's Southern Campus. The menu appears to be geared towards students, and includes spaghetti, tomales, a club sandwich, cheese rolls, etc, as well as a variety of desserts, fountain drinks, and cocktails. Oddly, the Chinese text on the Chinese menu card is printed upside-down.
