Famed LA eatery raises price of its 9-cent coffee 

A Los Angeles eatery, famed for its legendary French dip sandwiches, is finally raising the price of its 9-cent coffee.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/xYtMrv ) says the price of an eight-ounce brew at Philippe's has remained the same since 1977 but starting Feb. 2 it's going up to 45 cents.

The owners of the restaurant, which opened in 1908, say the cost of coffee is too high to keep the price so low for customers.

After 35 years of customers sliding a dime across the counter for a cup, now they'll need two quarters.

Owners say that's still a bargain and Philippe's loyal customers didn't seem to mind.

Many said they were surprised it stayed so low for so long.
