Back in the day this was the place to see and be seen. It still is. You can  run into any and everybody. From that friend you haven't seen in a minute, local politicians, neighbors, Bridgeport area business owners, familiar faces, and people reconnecting are  the norm,etc. It still has that vibe, but since the new owner took over there is a slightly different feel when you walk in the door. It seems like all of the faces are new in the booths and behind the counter. Change must happen. it is a part of life, but it takes some getting used to. Let's be honest the food has never been overwhelming gourmet delicious, but it's hot and fast and fresh. The waitresses have changed considerably since the new owners took over, but they are just as friendly and efficient. It takes time to build up that friendly rapport with new waitresses. I suppose when you go somewhere for so long, then all of a sudden everyone that knew you is gone, it feels a little strange, and a little sad at times. The owner is a very nice guy. He comes around and greets the tables, makes sure you are happy. I must say I was a little concerned when it was sold to the new owner, but he balances that fine line between what everybody remembers, and trying to improve for the sake of a better business, and customer experience. I don't envy that task at all. The restaurant business is a fickle mistress. This place has been an institution of Bridgeport for a very very long time. So he is trying to please the old school and bring in the new school. Overall definitely make this your neighborhood spot. It's a good place to meet people and relax, or to have a meeting over some good grub - I particularly love the cheeseburger platter . Add  some bacon ;) The milkshakes are thick, cold, flavorful, and stay away if you have to deal with blood sugar issues! LOL trust me it's hard splitting my milkshake with my eating companion. Because it's so good I want every drop of it! I wish they had a better selection of desserts, but it is what it is. They have put some new items on the menu, tweaked some of the prices, but that's what happens when you need to inflate to deal with the economy and the costs of running a restaurant. I'll just reiterate, don't give up on this place because you don't recognize the owner or the waitresses anymore. It's still the same whites diner we have all known & loved.. But for the love of everything Holy.. that parking lot sign ...oh my oh my.
The BEST homemade corned beef hash!
Passed this place so many time over the years and never thought of stopping..  Who knew it was such a gem?  Fast service, good coffee and great food.. so why the 4?  In the 21st century, you still only take cash???
