Far East Memories

The old Far East Cafe was a familiar and beloved part of Little Tokyo. Far East served more than "China-meishi," they were an important part of the community serving as a  place to gather, celebrate, and mourn. After WWII, the restaurant owners provided meals and lodging (there was a hotel avove the cafe) gratis to returning JAs.
