Quaker Diner

Quaker Diner is on Park Road in West Hartford.  It is one of those wonderful and quaint old diners that only the locals frequent. 

My daughter Susie wanted to have breakfast at Quaker Diner when she visited Hartford a few weeks ago. She brought her camera along.




Thursday is Food for Thoughts on Barcelona Daily Photo. Go take a look at other food-related posts.

At first I thought this was a "Quacker" diner, and thought I'd duck out of this post. But Quaker is different. Is there such a thing as Quaker food? I know Shakers have their own food - it's that Shake and Bake stuff...

Looks like a nice place. What are you gonna do when you run out of your daughter's photos? Sheesh!

Jacob, maybe I should have explained that it is called Quaker Diner because it is near Quaker Lane, a major north-south road in West Hartford. There is a small Quaker meeting house on Quaker Lane. And, I have no problem in running out of photos this year, with all the snow. I haven't even shown inside photos very much this winter, because of all the weather drama outside. Susie has two more appearances scheduled this week and next, unless she sends me other worthy photos from her visit.

This looks like my kind of place!

This looks like a great place to eat. I love finding these little old fashioned diners where the locals go for good food and to meet friends.

The outdoor light sign look lots more modern than the inside place ;-) I think it's a place where you feel very welcome!

Oh, Jacob is always so clever! I love the picture of the waitress-- I often admire pictures of people but am usually too shy to take them myself.

Wonderful angled shot.

Susie said...

Actually, that's something I'm usually quite shy about, too! I've resolved to be bolder this year, and the waitress was just so cool... I knew I'd regret it if I didn't try...

I love places like this. You skipped the most important part of the story though... what did you have to eat? Pancakes I hope! They're always better at a diner.

I love it. There's nothing better than a greasy spoon with some history. I'd much rather eat at a place like the Quaker Diner than any of the new, trendy restaurants that are a dime a dozen. Great photos by Susie as usual.

Great shots! I bet they have wonderful pancakes and maybe rice pudding and ......

Hope it stays like that for many years.

Rob and Mandy said...

Definitely our kind of place as well! Thanks for your post!

Susie, you did quite well with these photo's, the waitress is a gem. I am always hesitant to take photo's of people also. I may have to attempt it. I cannot believe I am the first to mention the old radio. Good job!

Looks like a place for some good comfort food.

Many of Greensboro's citizens, from the very beginning to current times, are Quakers. However, we don't have a Quaker Diner!

I am absolutely sure I would enjoy it!

Love the sign and the composition!

As a 'travel addicted' I had to click on the flickr link and I was amazed. Gorgeous shots! It's great to see many places I've been to through your daughters eyes.
