*A late lunch after a great foliage ride in Newport.
Mom and dad like our visits to the Blue Plate Diner. If you stop in for a late lunch or early supper you can have the place nearly to yourself. The late day afternoon sun streams into the plate glass windows so strongly that the waitress asks if you want to blinds down.
Seniors are attracted because it is on level with the ground, the food is affordable and consistently good. The restrooms are clean and close by.
Yet in the late evenings the diner is transformed. It can be difficult to find a parking space.
Funky, fun, and always a great assortment of deserts.
American as apple pie and coffee, but I’d order a BLT or a hardy club sandwich first.*
