Dinner and an End?

On a quick trip to Ottawa, my friend Peggi and I found a cute diner for lunch.


We were drawn in by the neon sign.


The place had about 12 booths and looked pretty authentic.


No menus. Two specials: Beef quesadillas or soup and sandwich of the day. Oh, and all day breakfast. Till 3:00 p.m. anyhow (almost all-day!)


So we both went for the chicken salad sandwich with cauliflower-leek soup and coffee for $4.99.


And we split dessert: an apple blossom and ice cream. Delicious!


I looked around and wondered where the Ladies' Room was...


...the waitress said,"Through those doors and around the bowling alley."


Bowling Alley? Sure enough, the diner was in front of a bowling alley and was the snack bar for the place.


My inner Dude (think Big Lebowski) wanted to play a few ends but we'll have to save that for next visit.

I have actually BEEN here, and I have been hardly anywhere in Ottawa. I remember the trek to the ladies' room!

OK, it don't look like a diner from the outside, it do look like a diner from the inside, but the food doesn't look or sound like a diner. What's the story? Maybe Dolly-girl needs to check it out...

I LOVE the red, black & white shot of the seats and the floor tiles. And all that shiny chrome.
