You know we’re big into nostalgia, and had asked you before what now-defunct play place you’d like to revive, and responses were through the roof. (It was Nickel City, followed by Raging Waters, by the way.)
But, we can’t forget about a bunch of locally loved mainstays that have come + gone. And, like any lost love, there are days where we find ourselves pining for their return.
Here’s our next question: What local businesses would you like to see make a comeback?
To get the conversation started, here are city editors Alyson + Gregg’s top choices:
- Aki’s Bakery — Originally opened in 1963, this Japantown + Willow Glen staple closed after 40 years in business. We still yearn for the taste of that Hawaiian guava chiffon cake.
- Mini Gourmet — One of the only 24-hour diners in the South Bay, this unpretentious little spot was a late-night fixture for college students.
Let us know which local establishments you miss.
