Roadside Diner, Phoenicia, New York.

On the way to the cabin in Phoenicia, New York we passed a small Diner that sat isolated near the wood line. It was the only building on a long stretch of road about a mile or so outside the main town. Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to return for a coffee the following day. I’ve always had a deep love of the classic American Diner and I try to visit them as often as I can. I managed to rope my mate Kyle in for the mini road trip.  
Upon arriving for our afternoon coffee we discovered that it was closed. Initially I thought it was abandoned but we later learned that it was simply closed for renovations. We took some pics and returned to the cabin. I thought I would post them here, kinda cool methinks.  
Plenty of car space.

  1. Ha, I do!

    I think it's because they're not part of a chain/franchise. Each one has it's own unique culture and atmosphere.

    They also seem to be filled with great characters – staff and patrons.

    Love them.


  2. Yeah, and I'm likely romanticizing them, but people just talk and be themselves.

    Characters, definitely. We used to eat at a Denny's after concerts or late night shenanigans in Tulsa. The place was the most fun after 2 a.m. Drunks, bikers, late-night haunters. Wonderful.
