The Halfway House Cafe – Santa Clarita’s backlot

By   | May 22, 2012 3:24 am 

The Halfway House Café on Sierra Highway is a classic American diner situated approximately halfway between Los Angeles and Palmdale.

Open since 1931, the café offers rustic decor, Old-fashioned cooking, and plenty of history to go along with your meal.

Not only do hundreds of visitors flock to the Halfway House for a good breakfast but hundreds of other patrons in the Television, Film, and Arts industry visit the café to use the location as a set for Commercials and Movies.

The ‘Halfway House’ looks like a traditional country diner but could be confused for a Hollywood set. Walking into the cafe the scenery transports you to the time of Model A Fords, 10 cent gasoline, and classic westerns.

The café has been filmed hundreds of times since the 1960’s.
