After spending the last 25 years entombed beneath a dull drop ceiling and the beigest of beige drywall, Santa Monica’s vintage 1959 Penguin coffee shop is being restored to its Googie glory now Mel's Drive in!

Located at the end of famous Route 66! We have a fresh  juice and smoothies, craft beers on tap, and grassfed beef and breakfast served all day every day!
