Retro Dairy Mart is under new ownership as of October 2014. We are the nostalgic neighborhood spot for many Burbank and surrounding residents. It’s the former historical Alta Dena Drive-Thru Dairy located in Burbank, CA since 1962. In keeping with the spirit of the significance of the nostalgic impact, RDM donated the Altadena original sign to the San Fernando Valley Relics Museum.
Recently it has been renovated while still maintaining its nostalgic charming façade. Customers can drive-up from one of two sides and literally remain in their vehicle while one of our attendant’s retrieve the groceries/snacks. Another option is to park and walk inside RDM and shop for yourself and enjoy the extensive selection of drinks and snacks RDM. Finally as part of the renovation, RDM has a quaint patio with tables, umbrellas, chairs and a television for customers to enjoy their snacks and coffee while relaxing.
The renovated RDM has a little bit of everything you may need and more inventory than previously. We sell warm, fresh coffee and Porto’s pastries. Due to its popularity, we carry Altadena Dairy products such as milk, cheese, eggs, sour cream butter, etc. Additionally we have a wide assortment of energy drinks, ice teas, sodas, water, beer, wine, etc. Other products include can goods, sandwiches, cold cuts, bread, burritos, fruit, ice, propane, essential health care items, medicine, and pet food. Just simply drive-thru like when you were a child with your parents and treat yourselves and kids to an ice cream, chips and retro candy. Hope to see you soon!
