Help Save and Restore the World Famous Historic Bagdad Cafe…………Find out how you can help……..

Hello from Andrea Pruett, I have owned the World Famous Historic Bagdad Cafe for over 30 years.

It has been so much fun and a pleasure to meet all the people who have visited from all over the world and get to experience the Bagdad Cafe

in person, for some it has become a great memory. 


If you have never seen the Bagdad Cafe movie (1987) the slideshow above will give you a brief glimpse of the movie characters and present day look of the Bagdad Cafe.

If you have seen the movie, this will bring back good old memories. 


We created this new web site to share all the information about the Bagdad Cafe,

the Bagdad Cafe movie and of course the song from the movie…….Calling You.


To listen to this beautiful song from the Bagdad Cafe movie……………. Calling You……. by Jevetta Steele………Click play!

We have visitors every day from 9am when we open, all day long until we close at 7pm.


Here are just a few pictures of our latest visitors in April 2024, mostly from France, a few from Belgium and Spain.


You can use the translate button in the top right corner, to convert this whole website into your own language.

Here are a few videos to watch……….. Roger talks about the new roof that his company just installed.


A Big Thank You to the many people who donated to the GoFundMe.


Roger gives us an update of the new roof they installed for the Bagdad Cafe.

A French visitor started playing his sax along with the Calling You song.

He then went outside and played in front of the Bagdad Cafe.

A  bus tour with many French visitors enjoying the Bagdad Cafe.

Another group of French visitors started singing in French.





On May 24, 2024  Wonderhussy came back to the Bagdad Cafe’ to do a follow up video on the very successful Bagdad Cafe’ GoFundMe, she helped spread the word about the GoFundMe back in February through her adventure videos channel on You Tube.


Her loyal viewers  donated over $24,000.00 to help Save and Restore the World Famous Historical Bagdad Cafe’


We had a new roof installed and she came out to take a look and speak with Mark the Manager and Andrea Pruett the owner for over 30 years.


This is short video edited from what was part of her regular video titled “Have Fun, Will Travel: Never a Dull Moment on the Edge of Death Valley”. this is a fun video to watch.


Wonderhussy publishes about 2 videos every week and has lots of videos over the years with places that are unique and she makes them entertaining.




Please support the Wonderhussy You Tube Channel and you can have fun watching all her videos as she explores the west and places you never knew existed.


She is a Great Friend of the Bagdad Cafe’


We  printed out 4 pictures of Wonderhussy and posted them on the wall, you can see the larger versions on the right.


A Big Thank You to all the people who donated to Help Save and Restore the Bagdad Cafe’


The Bagdad Cafe’ has made small improvements inside and on the outside the last few months, no more buckets to collect rain water.


We have tour buses stopping by with French visitors almost everyday now and Americans are stopping by on their travels on Route 66.


We are getting ready for the 100th year anniversary of Route 66 in 2026.

This is the Wonderhussy video back in February 28, 2024 to let everyone know about the GoFundMe and to show the condition of the Bagdad Cafe’. She talked with Andrea Pruett the owner for over 30 years.

This is the first Wonderhussy video of the Bagdad Cafe’ from Nov 7, 2016.

This shows you how the Bagdad looked in its hay day, banners and flags hanging from the ceiling and the kitchen was open.

The World Famous Historical Bagdad Cafe’

On June 26, 2024, a bus tour with 49 French visitors stopped by on their trip of America to enjoy the Bagdad Cafe’.

Another of the many wonderful surprising things that happen at the Bagdad Cafe.


A gentlemen named Mr. Greg from Poland, who has visited before and came with his family, made a $1,000.000 donation to get the Bagdad Cafe’ Water Tank (that was used in the Bagdad Cafe’ movie) repaired and mounted back on top of the metal stand out by Highway 40.


We are working on doing some welding to the frame and adding a few support wires to keep the sometimes strong winds out here to not have the tank fall off the stand.



We will run electrical power to light up the Water Tank and the new Freeway Wooden Sign.


We need to reconstruct the old freeway sign, so it will be visible to both directions of traffic on Hwy 40.


We are also going to construct a large flag pole to fly a large American flag. with lights.


If we can make it work would to set up a mannequin on ladder with a mechanical arm pushing a broom up and down to match the scene from the movie…..stay tuned.
