Santa Fe Depot Diner…Restaurant Review!
This review most likely will not benefit anyone living here in Florida…but who knows? Perhaps you might travel to Leavenworth, Kansas someday.
Let us hope that if and when you do travel there…you are wearing normal clothing and not prison orange! 🙂
Yes, there are quite a few prisons in Leavenworth…most notably Leavenworth Federal Prison.
But we are not going to talk about prisons….we are going to talk about an old Train station that has been turned into a diner.
Delicious breakfast started with numerous stripes of crisp bacon and two over-medium eggs and two pancakes. This meal is called the Casey Jones at $7.95
Yummy pancakes….so light and so tasty….they were not thin as a pancake….pun intended. 🙂
This was the Train Wreck with Chorizo, ham, 2 eggs, green peppers, potatoes, onions and toast $8.50.
And a Midwest Favorite…Biscuits and Gravy! There is 1/4 of an order at $2:50, 1/2 order at $3.50 and a full order at $4.50!
And the fact that the diner was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 makes it more interesting.
I liked the old wood and original benches. I thought it was amusing that the waiting rooms were for Men Only or Women Only.
I have to assume that the children were “waiting” with the Women. 😉
Note the transom windows above the door….so nostalgic.
Our elementary school had transom windows that the teacher opened with a long pole…she was pretty good at “snagging” the loop with that long pole…even though she was a bit up in years. 🙂 I’m not so sure I am steady enough at my age to unlock and open a transom.
If you are ever in the area, I suggest you try this Diner for breakfast.
We have eaten there numerous times and have always found it to have good service and food.
* Our meal was independently paid for by the Captain and Me!
Do you my dear readers….enjoy visiting historic places that have been made into something new and different? Or do you prefer them to remain in their original state?
