Great article from a resident in the 1970s. Describes the place to a tee.
I had stumbled across the Fat Cat in Monterey previously and that is the only way I knew this Fat Cat was also a restaurant. The Fat Cat near 17-mile drive was in what used to be a trailer park, but it served some of the best squid omelets you could ever want to taste. Yes, I had strange taste in those days.
