Weekend Reflections: Quaker Diner

Quaker Diner was introduced to you yesterday through my daughter Susie's photos.  She took a couple of nice reflection photos, too.

If you would like to see more reflection photos, James from Newtown Area Photos hosts Weekend Reflections every Friday.

You can see more of Susie's photographs on Flickr.  She has many wonderful photographs, including photos taken on her six-month long trip in 2008 to South America, South Africa and India.

Looks like a classic diner. Oh, how I miss having breakfast at places like this. Unfortunately, they'd probably have a good chuckle if I requested gluten-free pancakes.

I love the lunch counter and I especially like the public telephone sign! Perfect.

Susie has such a great eye!

Really nice reflections. If I am ever in the Hartford area, I will definitely stop here.

Sunny said...

Enjoy your weekend.

J'aime bien la première pour l'ambiance sympa et j'aime bien la seconde pour ces objets dont on ne sait pas lesquels sont des reflets !

Looking through my contact lenses, that seems to be quite a cozy, down home place to eat! I'd have to put on my "funky" sunglasses stepping out into the bright snow and sunny weather!
Happy weekend Jack of Hartford

Very nice! I love that "time to eat" clock in the window...

Lois said...

Great looking reflections and it looks like that diner does a brisk business too!

Looks a very popular place - it's always a good recommendation when the locals eat there.

Jacob said...

So what are you gonna die with Susie gone? Sit in the diner and drink coffee all day? She does nice work, that's for sure. I'll bet this is a very busy place!

More great photos. I'll have to check out her flickr page. I spent a month in India too. Absolutely incredible place. I'm sure she enjoyed it.

RedPat said...

Looks like a place where time moves slowly. Must be good to have that crowd!

Now I REALLY want to go there. It's almost 9:00 PM, I've just arrived from work and am famished. Isn't that perfect?

Farmchick said...

Great counter shot. I love diner food.

joo said...

That looks like my kind of place. I like the reflections too.

EG Wow said...

Neat diner, Jack! I think I might like to try the coffee there sometime.

Randy said...

Great shot!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Nothing more quintessentially American than sitting at the counter. Fun shot.

Karen said...

Great reflections, and I LOVE that clock, "time to eat"...isn't it always?

Kate said...

The toys along the top of the photo caught my eye. Diners, too, seem to be fading fast from the American scene.

VP said...

Some Nice reflections here, thanks for the link to Susie's photo, I'll drop by soon...

Can ya beat some nice greasy food at a diner on a cold winter morn? I think not. Like this one!
