Calvin’S is World Famous in San Jose

As mentioned by Bill Cosby

As mentioned by Bill Cosby

Someone was always singing the praises of Calvin’S, so I suggested stopping there to pick up lunch. We found this little hole in the wall, at 1411 The Alameda, amazing.

As soon as we stepped through the door our eyes filled with things foreign to San Jose. We saw sodas with strange names like Birch Beer. Even stranger for ‘This is Sharks Territory’ was being confronted with reference to the Philadelphia Flyers! All was forgiven as the aroma of Calvin’S found our noses.

The menu is not the same old, same old local fare. We ordered Cheesesteak Sandmiches (not misspelled) and a soda to go. As we paid the bill the owner, Jonne Aleeson, showed off his cell phone pic of Mayor Chuck Reed.

We rushed home unwrapped our Sandmiches, split the Birch Beer, and began to sing praises.

    I liked the Cheesesteak Sandmiche, and we will go back for more.

    The Birch Beer is like Root Beer, and it was nice.
