Lyon's Restaurant
Watt Ave. Sacramento, CA
Coffee Shops No CA | Lyons Restaurant | No CA Main

Sacramento, CA - Here is the Lyons Restaurant on the corner of El Camino Ave and Watt Ave in Sacramento. It closed in 2004, and now this beauty of Googie style sets waiting. This is as it appears October 2005 and may eventually be torn down. Ironically, a graffiti artist has painted the word "HOPE" on the side kitchen door.

UPDATE : Unfortunately, another coffee shop treasure has been obliterated off the roadside landscape. Demolition began on the Lyons Restaurant on 2945 Watt Avenue in Sacramento on March 5, 2007 about a week after a back hoe was spotted outside the suddenly fenced off Lyons on February 27, 2007. 03-07
