Recently I went to Le Croissant in San Rafael. It was around lunchtime, and I was hungry. There aren’t many diners located in Marin county, but on the Le Croissant website, it claims “diner,” so I decided to go there. The food was good, but the service was sketchy at best.
I decided to order takeout since I was on the go, and if I had arrived with the thought of dining in, I would have left.
Recently I went to ButtercuP Diner in Walnut Creek. I’m still trying to figure out why the P is uppercase (not a spelling error on my part, haha). Anyway, there are several locations of the ButtercuP Diner, including Walnut Creek, Concord, Oakland, and Vallejo.
While in Fresno, I heard Batter Up Pancakes had the “best pancakes around.” I cannot count the number of diners I’ve been to that have said “best pancakes,” and don’t get me started on diners that are the “best anything.” Anyway, I heard they had the best pancakes around, so I decided to stop.
Recently I was in Tehachapi and decided to get lunch at Henry’s Cafe. I already went to the Villiage Grill, so I decided this would be a fun stop. While none of the diners in Tehachapi have the name diner, if they think, act, feel like a diner…they are a diner.
