This funky little cottage near the base of the Mt. Wilson Trail is rather tired and dusty these days, which is too bad. But it’s still open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner, with mondo-good oatmeal cookies for pre- or post-hike energy. It’s a handy stop deep in Sierra Madre for locals who love Taco Tuesday and having a peek back in time at the town’s funkier, hippier days.
