The Formosa Café


For a pictorial history of Hollywood, come to the Formosa Café where the walls are lined with hundreds of pictures of famous patrons. Dating back to the 1930’s, Formosa is located next to the Warner Hollywood studio, so stars through the decades have often stopped in for a meal between scenes. From Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley to Nick Cage and Kevin Spacey, Formosa truly is “where the stars dine.” Maintaining the classic décor and flavors from the original Chinese menu, the café now serves affordably-priced Asian-inspired fusion dishes, such as hoisin barbecued Kobe beef burger and sesame and wasabi fries.
