Right at the top of Mount Wilson, California, is The Cosmic Cafe – a little outdoor eating area with the most spectacular views over Los Angeles.

When we’d read about The Cosmic Cafe back home, a few of the reviews mentioned that the food itself is nothing out of the ordinary – it sells stuff like sandwiches, burgers and chili – but it was as good an excuse as any to take a trip up a mountain, so we headed up there earlier this week.

The drive itself was a little bit hairy, but the views are well worth it: you’re just going to have to take my word for that, though, because these photos totally don’t do it justice – there was some smog over the city which made everything look a bit hazy here, but it was one of those drives where every hairpin bend drew gasps of amazement (and OK, a few of terror) from all of us, so we were really glad we decided to do it.

Oh, and although we really went for the view alone, the food was actually pretty good, too, so if you ever find yourself at the top of this particular mountain, I can totally recommend the chicken sandwich…
