Miss Wakefield Diner, Sanbornville, N.H.
Diners often seem more authentically populist in nature than most
politicians, not caring about your financial, political or economic
beliefs -- the owners and staff are almost always just real people
wanting you to be part of their “family.” While the proverbial,
salt-of-the-earth waitress asking “What do you want, hon?” is often
associated with diners, the welcoming nature takes on, obviously, many
other forms of sincere words beyond that famous phrase.
It's always a wonderful scene seeing America go out to breakfast and supporting a small business right at the start of the
day. I'd imagine it gives diner owners hope about their modest, humble
businesses with customers providing a second ray of sunshine to
complement the rising of the early morning sun.
So, give me any day of the week an extensive menu selection, large
portions of comfort foods at fair prices, quick service, oak and
mahogany booths, counter with stools, jukeboxes, a stainless steel
exterior, and plenty of neon! You see, there's really nothing like
eating at a good old-fashioned diner when traveling the small towns,
back roads and big cities in New England. The experience, quite simply,
brings a wonderful slice of American tradition to the senses -- and
taste buds -- that can only be fully realized by frequenting these
