Breakfast Served All Day: The Story of the Rhode Island Diner

Modern Diner

What’s on the menu? Hearty, home-cooked meals and desserts, of course. Bring your appetite but not a lot of cash. Diners are the true American eating place.


Join Dr. Tom Shaker for an exploration of all-things diner.


Discover how Walter Scott’s late night, walkup lunch cart in Providence in the 1870s inspired a nationwide craze. Learn how to decode the diner lingo used by counter staff to place orders for food, and hear about some of the Ocean State’s most iconic diners.


This event is free and open to all.
