IMG_1437Businesses come and go but The Quaker Diner has been around since the 1930’s and family owned since the 1970’s. The Diner has just made a major commitment to the community with a major renovation of the outside of the diner and are currently completing a renovation of the interior. It is the kind of place the hipsters in Fishtown wished they had only it is not retro, it is original. IMG_1441 We stopped in for a late evening breakfast and were delighted with the friendly service and neighborhood feel to the place while we talked and listened to other customers. The banter was outstanding and the waitress was on the ball. The diner is clean and orderly and have a great take out section of baked items made on the premises. IMG_1443

Our breakfast order was dished up quickly and ample helpings were provided and quite tasty. The coffee was also outstanding.

If you looking for that great American diner experience, The Quaker Diner is a must visit.   Also of note, right next door to the diner, Chase’s Hop Shop is slated to open with craft beer and sandwiches. With affordable housing and apartments, convenient to train and bus lines, the folks in Fishtown may move up to Lawndale and Burholme. After all it is only 15 minutes by train to Center City and there is The Quaker Diner.  IMG_1444
