The Golden State Cafe
The idea is simple, but the execution is simply better than we could have imagined. Root beer floats give most of us the nostalgic memories of growing up and playing outside on those hot summer days and the Golden State Cafe in Los Angeles has captured childhood for us, but with a twist. And that twist is a beer float! Golden State Cafe serves up the traditional root beer float, along with a coke and ginger ale float, but we’ll be stopping by for their one scoop of ice cream served with an old rasputin stout on draft, please and thank you.
