On Spring Opens!

Check out the hand painted sign and mural

Last Saturday, amongst much fanfare, On Spring officially opened it doors (or windows to be more accurate) to the general public. The day featured live music and spoken word performances courtesy of Hen House Studios, fresh-brewed coffee and healthy salads, sandwiches and soups. The building that On Spring now occupies was originally known as Sam’s Lunch which was built in 1949. Sam served hamburgers to hungry railroad workers up until his daughter, Millie, took over the family business. Rechristened as Millie’s, she served similar american fast food until she closed up shop in 2002. Park Maintenance Chief, Andre Jones, remembers Millie’s food and according to him you got your burger her way, or no way. “Better not ask for ketchup.”

We here at CA State Parks, are very excited to be a part of the evolution of this small hamburger stand turned locavore eatery. Hopefully, On Spring will be more accommodating to individual tastes. The cafe is located at the South end of L.A. State Historic Park (near the Chinatown Gold Line stop) and is currently open Tuesday through Saturday, 7:00am to 3:00pm, but look for these hours to expand as summer approaches. Our sunset walkers and joggers may soon be tempted by an after workout snack.

Ample seating!
