Stanley Mosk Courthouse Cafeteria Opens Its Doors


By a MetNews Staff Writer


The Panorama Café, on the ninth floor of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, yesterday opened its doors to the public, after being closed for three months for renovations.

 Its opening was originally planned for mid-July, but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William F. Highberger, who oversaw the renovation project, explained the date had to be pushed back due to delays in obtaining the necessary clearance from the Health Department, which came on Friday.

The cafeteria’s $300,000 face-lift includes a fresh coat of paint, new doors and awnings, and a reconfiguration of the dining area to add a private section for court employees and a “business center” offering postage, stationary supplies, photocopying, fax access, printing services, flash drives, CDs and DVDs for sale.

Broken equipment in the kitchen has also been replaced with appliances salvaged from the closed Van Nuys West Courthouse.

The cafeteria has also undergone a change in management, and is now being run by LunchStop—the same food service provider which operates cafes at the Airport, San Fernando and Antelope Valley courthouses. It also opened a cafe at the Pasadena courthouse last month.
