Dining Out

On our way to Green Bluff growers the other day, Denny spotted this train car on the side of the road so on our way home we stopped to check it out. It turned out to be Frank's Diner Newport and what a delightful experience it was.

I've already mentioned that we prefer to try local restaurants over chain restaurants whenever we can and we'll pick a diner over a regular restaurant in a heartbeat. Frank's turned out to be a delightful place to have lunch. The diner was crafted from a Pullman sleeping car, retrofitted to be a diner after extensive (and expensive) renovations.





Original magazine ads from the 1940s line the walls, the upholstered booths are comfortable, the food is nicely presented and very tasty (I loved my turkey club and Denny's bacon cheddar burger was good too) and the wait staff were very friendly, courteous and efficient. I was very tempted to try their huckleberry milk shake but I knew I would have no room for lunch otherwise. Perhaps the next time through.

There is a second Frank's Diner in downtown Spokane that has been voted Spokane's best breakfast place for ten out of the past eleven years. Sounds like our kind of place, doesn't it?
