mineola diner


please click on photo to see more detail


maybe it's because I live on long island but I love diners, they seem to be everywhere here. I finally ate at this one last spring. my son and I ordered vanilla milkshakes and the waitress filled our glasses from the big silver cups they used to make the shake in leaving us with some extra goodness.

this post is a part of my world tuesday. to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go here, thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, fishing guy and louise

I too love diners. I go in them whenever I can. I remember you had a milkshake in Brooklyn this summer...

Your photo describes diners as they are---plain and simple and good.

Love diners, but not chain ones - the best ones are individually owned. Nothing makes me feel I'm in America like a diner.
Great photo.

I was going to say something about your Brooklyn milkshake—but Bibi beat me to it! I love diners too, probably for the same reasons you do. Oh dear, now I'm craving a BLT on rye!

I love diner food too! Their menus are always so extensive and I love how I can order pancakes for supper if I want to! :-)

Looks like a down-home place that would serve delicious shakes.

ha, I agree. There are an awful lot of diners on LI, and they're all full on the weekends!

I absolutely love diners (in NYC) too. I think I eat 50% of my meals there.

I haven't found one in Bangor that I like yet.
