On the west wall Sogliano could see the remains of a painted lararium, with a serpent sliding towards an altar on the left.
At the rear was located the room for the customers, which was bordered by a corridor to the latrine.
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1896, (p.438)
According to Mau in BdI, the steep stairs to the upper rooms also leaned against this wall, and at a height of 3.25 the holes for the beam supports for the upper floor could be seen.

V.2.13 Pompeii. March 2009. South-west corner of thermopolium. 
According to Mau, he could believe that the remains of the material to the left of the entrance were a hearth. Above this was painted the usual serpent, although only the right side was conserved.  Also against the left wall were the very steep stairs to the upper rooms. Also found was a small cylindrical travertine altar, used no doubt for the sacrifices before the lararium (see V.2.14 for a note by Boyce).. 
See Mau, A., 1894. Mitteilungen des Kaiserlich Deutschen Archaeologischen Instituts, Roemische Abtheilung Volume VIII. (p.49)
According to Boyce, above the hearth was a badly preserved lararium painting. The Genius was represented sacrificing at an altar. On each side stood a Lar, but only the one on the right was preserved. Further to the right a serpent approached an altar. 
This description was from Sogliano published in 1879. Reports in periodicals published in 1894 and 1896 mention only an altar as being visible in a painting. Today, nothing remains.
