Feeling a Strong Sense of Togetherness at the Local New England Diner

 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 local treasures.
