Late Night Eats: Nova Express Cafe

LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

Attention space cadets, men in black and intergalactic babes, your resistance to snack attacks of insomnia are not to be heeded. Point your ship towards Fairfax Village and prepare to wine and dine in the alien kitsched, mellowed out, droid welcoming version of the Mos Eisley Cantina at Nova Express Cafe.

Open six nights a week (no Mondays) starting at 7 p.m., Nova stays open until 2 a.m. Sundays through Wednesdays, on Thursdays and 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Alien servers are relaxed, so if you are in a light speed hurry to eat and run, use your tractor beams to draw them to your table. Liquids range from wines, beers, martinis (with appropriate names such as the cosmicpolitan) to teas, espressos and shakes (soy milk requests honored).
