Miss Worcester Diner: Worcester, MA

After waiting so long to learn the fate of this classic 1948 Worcester diner, I just had to eat there right away. A friend and I checked it out last Saturday, very late in the morning. They are currently open for breakfast and lunch only, 7 days per week.

We ordered two diner standards: a veggie and cheese omelet and french toast. They were very good, the portions were filling (but not so much that we had to roll out the door), and the prices were low. Kara, who notices these kinds of things, commented on how clean the diner was. I usually take note of home fries because they are served everywhere and allow easy comparison between diners - these were well seasoned and delicious.

My only gripe is with the booth tables and chairs: the molded plywood kind that you find in cafeterias and fast food restaurants. I couldn't remember if they were there before, but they appear in several interior photos from before the closing (Here is a very nice photo taken last year while the diner was in limbo). I know the new family has put a lot of money into refurbishing/renovating the diner already and I'm sure that custom (or salvaged) booths would be expensive. I hope that business goes well and that in the future they will replace the benches with something more appropriate for this historically significant diner.

Did they do away with their overnight hours on Thurs and Friday nights?
