    I was in the mood for some Bacon & Eggs with Rye Toast and Home Fries. I saw the sign from the road and pulled down into the parking lot. When I walked into the diner I was greeted by 2 waitresses that were wearing old fashioned uniforms. This diner was once the original 1954 Silk City Diner,,, built in Patterson, New Jersey and trucked to Potter County from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
    I really enjoyed the breakfast, the oldies, great service, and the chance to take a few pictures of days gone by.
    If any of you guys are cruising down Route 6 in east Coudersport, pull into the Mill Creek Plaza. Make sure you sit in the back dining room and enjoy the pictures and memorabilia along with a burger and fries. IMG_6524.JPG

    My wife and I really enjoy searching for places like that to dine at. If we had found that one, we would probably be in your pictures, still eating....:)

    We love old diners. We have only been to two that we would never go back to. There is one in Traverse City we go to quite often and they put out and excellent meal at a good price, and the service is tops. ProPho if you ever get up to the Traverse area try Randy's diner on Garfield.(y);););)

    That looks a great diner.
    Don't see many places like that any longer.
    Those were the good old days.

    We have one in town sort of like that but not that much memorabilia on the walls. I did go to a small cafe in a small town two weeks ago that had been there for like 64 years I think and never changed and the walls were covered in Elvis everything. I mean covered. Posters, records, pictures and some autographed, life size stand ups, concert tickets, license plates. That old gal had everything in there except good food, LOL.
    That Fezz's Diner looks like a cool place.

    DSCN1575.JPG DSCN1574.JPG While we're on the subject of Diners, here's a couple that I pass on my way to work. The "AERO" diner is located in North Windham, Conn. and is so named because it's right up the road from the Windham Airport. The other is located in Willimantic, Conn. and was operational until just a short time ago. I've eaten at the AERO and the food is top notch but a little pricey for a diner.

    Thanks for the post and pic's Windman and the trip down memory lane. Those tables and chairs looked like our kitchen ensemble when I was a kid. I like the old Chevy Fire Engine too. We have an old diner similar to this in Social Circle Georgia called 'Hot Rod's'. They have pretty good food too. Glad you came across this Diner, enjoyed a good meal, and shared your adventure with us.
