City of Los Angeles Coffee Shop Dinner Menu

Here’s a dinner menu used on the same City of Los Angeles coffee shop car as yesterday’s lunch menu. The cover photo features Las Vegas, which is on the train’s route, while yesterday’s cover was of Mt. Rainier, which is quite a ways off the train’s route.

The dinner menu has three table d’hôte selections that are quite different from the lunch menu: broiled salmon; fried chicken; and beef pot roast, all of which were $2.25 (about $18 in today’s money). Also unlike the lunch menu, paper clipped to this menu was a flyer advertising a “Special Steak Dinner” for $3.50 (close to $30 in today’s money). (The PDF includes a view of the menu with and without the paper-clipped flyer.) Otherwise, the sandwiches, salads, beverages, and other items are identical to the lunch menu.
