The Toasted Bun has been around since 1963. A few years ago it was nearly closed down because the kitchen didn't meet health standards. Instead of hiding from the awful news, the owners invited the press in, invited television cameras in, and showed off the mistakes promising to fix everything and pass the next inspection with an A rating. The place did just that.
Yesterday the Toasted Bun was featured in the Glendale News Press.
Coming back from near shut down, the little diner has expanded its hours. We can eat dinner there now. Dinner at Glendale's one true diner.
And who knows. Maybe if we eat there often enough we, too, can have our picture on that wall. Something to dream about, at least.
