Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Miss Portland Diner.
The Miss Portland Diner began as an original dining car from the Worcester Lunch Car Company in 1949. It was a local landmark for decades before falling on hard times and into City of Portland custody in the early 2000s. Then Tom Manning, a Portland native and former Newsweek exec in NYC, bought it in 2007. He gave it a full restoration and relocation, along with a significant addition, and reopened its doors five years ago.
For Greasy Spoons Week, Eater stopped by to take some photos of the iconic diner in action during breakfast.
