The last of the lunch counters

One of the icon businesses in Vintage Vegas is the White Cross Drug Store at the corner of Oakey and Las Vegas Blvd. And inside WC is Tiffiny's diner! It's the last of the old fashioned lunch counters with exposed grills that I know of.

It's a fun little trip down memory lane, as you can stop in 24 hours a day and grab a hamburger or a couple of eggs, or just read the paper and drink some coffee. Little has changed in the 20 years I've been hanging out downtown, and stopping in for middle of the night cold remedies or a late night burger.

This place used to be run by Pete
Eliades who owns Dream Girls and lots of property around town. When
he had it, the portions were huge and if you wanted seconds they were always on the house. My husband ate there for five decades.
Sometimes when I went we would share a meal, they were that big.
My mom also worked in the drug store (film dept.) during the 60's 70's and 80's.Back then the lunch counter didn't have a name it was just called White Cross. New owners have been Liberty Cafe and TIffanys and for you "newcomers"
it's pretty good but believe me not what it was back in the day. MJ
