I admire the single mother owner of North End Diner. It takes a lot to raise children and run a business, but it take more out of you to run a restaurant. I did it once and it was too demanding and customers are fickle.
Because of my diet, I enjoy eating there. The omletes are good and my husband has a great breakfast. If I don't want breakfast, then the staff will fix me something special without a hassel.
It is often true they take more time than is necessary, but I think of it as if 'mother' is cooking- you can't rush things. So yes, don't eat there if you have an appointment in an hour. And, don't be afraid to get up and help yourself to another cup of whatever you're drinking. They don't mind and I like helping myself.
What you probably don't know is they hire people trying to get back on their feet in society. So enjoy your next meal there, be kind while you let them know how they can make your visit more enjoyable.
It's rare to have a family owned business these days with all the pressure of franchises. I take people there to share the at home atmosphere and to support the dying breed of family owned businesses. How about trying them with this information in hand.
