A diner is a phenomenon that is mainly seen in the Northeastern United States. They’re peculiar, iconic little restaurants that seem to be some of the few constants in this rapidly-changing world. There are some things that you can rely on: the coffee will be not the best you’ve had, but still drinkable. Breakfast will be available all day and night. It might be crowded at 2 a.m. The mini-jukebox are still at each booth, even though they may not work and they’re rarely used, and they will be filled with the most incongruous music selections you could think of: Johnny Mathis and the Beatles right next to Celine Dion, Guns N’ Roses and Willie Nelson.
There’s always chrome. A lot of chrome.
And cheese. There’s definitely cheese.
