Throwback Thursdays: Griswold's ~ a Swedish Smorgasbord in Redlands
This was a popular Smorgasbord from the 60's-80's in Redlands. It had a bakery, a gift shop and a stand in line that went really fast and hundreds of people would come for lunch, dinner but mainly for brunch on Saturday's and Sundays. I remember they decorated cakes and it was fasinating to watch. I liked their Swedish Meatballs.
My dad was the manager of the DMV in Redlands so we drove from Riverside to eat here many times and would meet friends here too. There was no freeway between Riverside and Redlands at that time.
I found this post card and you can see how the cars in the parking lot are older models. I remember buying this post card in the gift shop as I had a post card collection.
This restaurant is now gone and a 24 Hour Fitness is located at Ford Ave and Redlands Blvd.

Does anyone else remember Griswold's in Redlands or Claremont?
