So Not Funny

Alright, maybe it's a little funny. Yes, the coffee shop across the street from the hotel is called, "Late for the Train." Ouch.

That's a good one for people who don't arrive on time, but you need a place called:

Late Train - Unplanned Overnight Visitors Hotel & Bar

for more suggestions be sure to visit the
Flagstaff Visitors Bureau of the Chamber of Commerce

it was apropos since we could get on the train or we would have been late (or latte) for our train in LA.

My father-in-law's generosity is second only to his fear of flying. In addition to personal chef, bodyguard, and wingman duties, I also serve as train companion.

The lack of Seinfeld references disappoints me.

Sounds like a death trap to me. Hitchcock would love this stuff.

Was this coffee house next to an Aw Shucks, I Guess You'll Just Have To Stay The Night Inn?

Creepy.

Though, I hear that their Blunt Force Trauma To The Head Breakfast is to die for.

Hi Chef John,

I lived in Palo Alto, CA, until I moved to Alaska in 1991. There was a wonderful restaurant along the rails in Palo Alto called "Late for the Train". They had the most wonderful breakfast and lunch menu. I remember lots of capers in their menu. Ummm...capers. Don't know if they are still in business, but if they are, you might check them out.

I really enjoy your video recipes. I've followed quite a few of your recommendations, and have never been disappointed. I've shared a lot of food with friends and have always given you the credit.
