Dining ~ Modern Diner, Pawtucket

Modern Diner
364 East Ave.
Pawtucket, Rhode Island


The Bear and I went to Modern Diner for breakfast on Saturday. It's a 1941 Sterling Streamliner diner (one of the only two left, according to Art in Ruins), and the first one to be put on the National Register of Historic Places (from Quahog.org).

It's a fun experience, and the old diner has been restored to its former glory.


The food was good - typical diner food. I enjoyed my French toast, and the Bear liked her pancakes. The service was friendly and although the place was busy, it wasn't uncomfortably crowded...although I've heard that the lines can stretch out the door, especially for Sunday brunch.


  1. Love your new site. I'm a native Rhode Islander and a true RI girl. Thanks for leaving a comment on my Love Letter to RI post. Do you know about the NE Bloggers group. You might want to check them out. Again, this is a terrific new blog! congrats.

  2. I'm off to explore this new (for me) site, Erika. Consider this about to be "followed". Love the diner. How could anyone NOT???

  3. OMG - I LOVE the Mod! One opinion I'd differ on is that they are WAY more than typical diner fare ... they have a gazillion specials and they are amazing! I adore the belgian waffle with zabaglione cream and fresh fruit, the fruit-stuffed french toast, the lobster benedict, should I go on??? Reasonably priced, beautifully presented, and DELISH! Did you know they were featured on Al Roker's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on The Food Network? RI had its 15 minutes of fame!
