“kitschy, RT-66 roadside cafe”

Bagdad Cafe, a movie centering on old Route 66, was filmed in the Newberry Springs area. The Bagdad Cafe located in Newberry Springs is not the original Bagdad Cafe, the original cafe was located in the town of Bagdad between Amboy and Ludlow on old Route 66. Nothing remains of the old cafe in Bagdad. The Newberry Springs cafe is a Route 66 survivor though and was once known as the Sidewinder Cafe. After the movie was filmed here the name Bagdad Cafe just seemed to stick. It is open for business today serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Not a place to go and eat. The food is horrible! The atmosphere is ok, but I don't really get why it's so popular. I would say skip it 'cause you ain't missing much.

Ok. If you have seen the movie Bagdad Cafe or the hilarious California's Gold episode where Huell Howser stops in unexpectedly, then you will probably have to stop and check this place out. If you, however, have not... then there's probably no good reason to stop here - EVEN TO EAT. Personally, I thought the movie was cool (good luck finding it) so I stopped here. The place is pretty run down, hot and humid, and there were flies. Despite all this, the lady that ran the place was really talkative and friendly, and she took our picture for us.
