Bakersfield, California. That's where you'll find the last Woolworth's Luncheonette in America — and it's still serving food!
Eater Los Angeles:
Step into the Five & Dime Antique Mall in Bakersfield, California, and that rarity becomes reality. There, in the back corner at the ground-floor level of the four-story building, is a fully functioning former Woolworth luncheonette counter, complete with 22 counter seats, Formica tables ringing the room, and an open kitchen for griddling burgers and making milkshakes.

Head over to Eater Los Angeles to see lots of photos of this fifties time capsule.
