Old Spaghetti Factory

Zoe reminded me of some comfort food from my teenage years.


That’s the Pot-Pourri Spaghetti with Meat, Mushroom and Clam Sauce.

Unchanged from the 1970s. Hot Italian Sourdough Bread with Whipped Garlic and Plain Butter; Minestrone Soup or Crisp Green Salad; Spumoni Ice Cream; and Hot Tea or Coffee. $12.55

The first Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant opened at this location in Gastown in 1970. Decor looks to be unchanged as well. You can still dine in a streetcar.


New since my youth are GHOSTS in the Gastown location. 🙂
