2010:
The Hollywood Diner is a Mountain View (#326) from 1954. It was originally located in Westbury, NY and remained there until the early 1980s. It has moved around Baltimore a few times since then. It has been used as a movie location a few times (hence the name). In 2009, the ownership and name changed to "Crema Coffee Co. at the Hollywood Diner". In 2011, the Red Springs Cafe became the diner's new occupant. In 2012, the diner changed hands again and was now known as Thomasino's Pizza Subs & Pasta. That business left in 2014. Since 2015, the diner is used as dining space in conjunction with food trucks which park on the same lot. For more, see this website. [map]
