  1. Cool place to stop! I would have wanted to try their fried chicken.

  2. Yay, a new place to check out for our future road trips. We usually do Starbucks in Tustin (opens at 4:30 am) or Cream Pan (opens at 6 am) then Gorman. We’ve always driven past Castaic, but not next time! Chicken fried steak for me please, πŸ™‚

      Hi CC – We thought briefly about going to Cream Pan but we just wanted to get through LA. We’re going to D23 this weekend, so I think we’ll have to stop at Cream Pan this time.

  3. I hear ya man! LA traffic is the worst!

    If you do Cream Pan, you can also try Tan Hoang Huang (on Newport St) – they have great VN iced coffee, banh mi, ready to go spring rolls (different kinds too) and also two kinds of pate chaud (chicken and pork, less than $1). A few doors away from THH is Kolache Factory (they make both sweet and savory kolaches). And since I know you like quirky stuff, the next strip mall up from Cream Pan has this miniature church in the middle of the parking lot.

    Have fun at D23!

      Oh man, how have I never known about the mini church before?!?! You know all of the cool stuff, CC. Next time we go, I’m definitely checking out the church, getting some iced coffee, and trying a kolache. Thanks for the awesome tips! Sorry I replied so late! I suck!
