Meet Miss Mendon: Classic Diner of Distinction
In her current incarnation, she is Miss Mendon, having begun as Miss Newport. She has been repainted, re-tiled, given an expanded dining area and a new kitchen. She’s had a long life and seen hard times, but despite everything, she has survived with grace and character.
She was assigned number 823 although she was actually the 623rd dining car built after Worcester Dining Cars began numbering dining cars using 200 as the base number.
She sports a professional kitchen.
The seats have been re-chromed, cleaned and restored. Miss Mendon looks as if she was built just yesterday She’s open for business serving good food to the people of the Valley.
You can visit her at 16 Uxbridge Rd, Mendon, Massachusetts, She is open for your dining pleasure every day from 6 AM to 10 PM.
An American icon lives on...
