No Nonsense at Duffy's Bar

Dive Life spent last Saturday at Duffy's in La Habra, and it was the perfect spot to start the adventure. Enter through the round, barrel door and inside is everything you hope for in a dive. Duffy's is dark and smokey, as if you've gone back in time to when smoking in bars was still legal. We grabbed a seat at the bar and Mr. Jim, our bartender for the night, came to take our order.

The Best Little Cafe

Dive Life is happily looking forward to this Saturday night, as we will be having our first dive bar adventure to report on for the blog. However, as I am anxious to keep the posts going, I decided to write up a quick review about a little place where we love to eat at least once a week. The La Habra Heights Cafe in La Habra has been our go to breakfast/lunch joint since we moved to La Habra 2 years ago. We love this place and it is a sad week that we don't make it in for a bite to eat. The staff is amazing, the kind who remember every face and an order to match, the type of place where you could go in and ask for "the usual".

Where Ghosts go to Drink

Jack Nicholson in "The Shining"

Check out this list of haunted bars! Too bad none of them are in our neck of the woods, but now we can add "find haunted bar" to our mission list.

Know any supposed haunted bars in our area? I'm dying (pun intended) to find one to explore!

Welcome to Dive Life!

We here at Dive Life are on a mission and our mission is simple: to explore all the dive (and not so dive) bars and eateries around the La Habra area. Our goal is to try all the places that we drive past everyday and never notice. Have suggestions for places you think we should try? Send us your comments and ideas!


P.S. Stay tuned for our first review....
