“Yeah, but did they have Ovaltine?”

I went with some pals to the Ovaltine Cafe on East Hastings, which is an adventure in itself. Apparently an episode of the X Files was filed here, as well as some scenes for i-Robot. Ben Affleck was there once too, but Steve says it’s because the Ovaltine was all he could afford. Ha!

Scary, no? Oh yes, and they DO serve Ovaltine. It was good. But I ordered pie a-la-mode, and the lady brought it to me cold…like…straight out of the fridge cold…with ice cream…

The best part is that there’s a $3 minimum charge per person at a booth, which is actually a task because everything is like $2! Luckily, my pie and ovaltine brought me to a whopping $4.00 or so. BIG SPENDERS!

More tomorrow…

    Your bog-standard mug of coffee would cost you $4 over here. Bring on the cheapness!

    The People love them some x-files. Do you recall what episode was filmed there? Ben Affleck is the suck.

    I don’t know what episode. I haven’t seen i-robot either, so I was like, “really, they actually FILMED something here??”

    It’s pretty dingy, so I guess it’s supposed to pass for an old style diner. It certainly is old! I guess it opened in like 1943. I don’t think they’ve cleaned the floor since then, either.

    Oh man, the Ovaltine was so good.
