Art Jacobs revisits Joyce's Coffee Shop with his parents.
"Joyce's has been serving up coffee and great food to the community of Northridge since 1955. My Parent's Dan & Helen Jacobs used to pile us four boys into our 1960 Oldsmobile station wagon to head out and have Saturday breakfast at Joyce's. When you step into Joyce's it's likegoing back in time. The old 50's counter top with red leather seats and the stainless steel bar back looks the same as it did when the place
opened. Joyce is now deceased, but her cook Rudy purchased the place and has been delivering excellent service ever since. I had the opportunity to take my parents back to Joyce's for lunch. We had a great time reminiscing with our waitress. She even allowed us to capture our memories on film. If you haven't visited Joyce's stop by, Rudy has a large selection of food, my favorite being the meatloaf sandwich on
sourdough. Thanks Rudy and to all of your staff for making our afternoon outing a
delight." Art Jacobs
