The diner is a Worcester Streamliner dining car built in 1941 at Worcester Lunch Car Company by French-Canadian builders. They created the streamliner, or semi-streamliner cars in the late ’30s to late ’40s. “[This] was the deluxe, top-of-the-line model.
Inside the dining car, the pale yellow tiles and metal strips along the back wall, the mosaic tile floor and wooden door leading to the back dining room remain original. The booths have been replicated to look like the originals, upholstered with red vinyl and constructed out of old-growth mahogany, just like the original wood detailing in the car. Six of the eight lighting fixtures on the ceiling are original, too.
The menus feature everything from Benedicts and omelets to breakfast favorites, lunch includes grilled pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and comfort food classics, and dinner showcases entrées like marinated steak tips, meatloaf, short rib mac and cheese, salmon and even a vegan-friendly Beyond Meat Italian Sausage pasta and Beyond Meat burger.
She’s open to the public today at 6 a.m. for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a full liquor license. It will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. (opens at 7 a.m. on Sundays).
