Ventian Cafe California Style

Abbot Kinney had a vision for Venice California that would rival Venice Italy. Yes there are canals and yes there are arcades, but the depression and subsequent bad taste and development has left but a smidgen o' Venice left.
This purple-hued arcade with wavy gravy graphics at least has the right use in mind - caffe, per favore!
