Munson's Diner and Their French Toast Will be Sorely (and Hungrily) Missed

Munson's Diner is was located on Far West Side, few blocks from my apartment. I've been going there since I first moved to the area in Spring 2003. Cheap and good food. French toast with eggs and bacon for less than 5 bucks. I ate there nearly every weekend and the waiters eventually stopped asking me for the menu. During the Blackout - I got locked out of my apartment and left a note with a friend to meet at the diner to get my damn keys. Reliable. Had coffee and toast with the power being out and all. I brought a date there once and he dissed the place. How dare he. Good bye! Next!

September 2004, I despaired. The door and windows were boarded up.

Caught the news several days ago that it is being moved upstate. Sure enough I went outside to look - it was distended from the building and ready to be propped onto a flatbed. According to an article I found today, the business had dwindled and Volvo dealership had bought the space but didn't have a heart to tear it down.

Farewell, my old friend :(

I is the love that diner -- they make good greasy bacons and sausage, pancake and all that -- when I visited your home for the first time -- eating at that diner was truly the classic NYC diner.


Me is the sad!
