Mom's Diner

A week ago, we stopped at Mom's Diner for a bite to eat. 

Located in Archbold, Ohio, Mom's Diner is one of those places that remains in the psyche because the burger buns are baked fresh in the kitchen, the milkshakes are thick and creamy, and the ambiance is 1950 diner.

 I admit it, I'm captivated by the neon lights, vintage signs on the wall and the juke box...

It's a place loaded with memories of sharing pizza with friends after watching our little leaguers, grabbing a burger before viewing the Christmas lights, and stopping by for pie and ice cream just because. 
Mom's Diner is one of those places that I'm thankful exists.  It's a favorite of my grandsons and one of my favorite dining experiences, too.

  1. What a great place. I'd love to have it near me. I'd probably go and have breakfast there and become one of their morning regulars :)

  2. These pictures are so wonderful! If not for the tie dyed shirts on the wall, it looks like these picture could have been taken in the 1950's. I especially like what you did in the last one.
    What a gem of a place!

    Don't you think this would be a perfect movie set?

  3. What a lovely place! Oh yes, it could be prefect for a movie set :)

  4. I love this and the great photographs. It reels one back into the past.

  5. Homemade pies? Milkshakes? Cheesy cheeseburgers... served on a PLATE? in a really cool place?!! I love it! Do they have soda fountain drinks and fizzy cherry coke? I am getting terrible homesick for some Nostalgia. I have places like this, stacked neatly in my memory bank.
