Wow, it’s been a long time since I went to a new diner. I was excited to try Terry’s Diner in Eugene, Oregon, and cross a diner in Oregon off my list. After traveling through a large portion of Oregon, I didn’t have a “diner in mind” but knew I wanted to go to a diner. Terry’s Diner was a good stop.
My preference with restaurants right now is takeout. I’m not sure when I’ll “dine-in,” which does change diners’ vibe. You don’t get the same classic feel of a diner but ordering takeout.
Recently I stopped at Lou’s Luncheonette in Sonoma. I was on my way home and decided to make a quick stop since I was fairly hungry. (Waiting 20 minutes to get home was just too long…). Lou’s Luncheonette has gone through a few name changes including the Fremont Diner followed by the Boxcar Chicken & Biscuits.
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.
