Exmore Diner

We are just back from a lovely weekend with some good friends in North Carolina. It was a lovely break away, just what we needed, lots of laughs and happy memories made. On the drive back we stopped in Exmore, Virginia to have breakfast at this old diner.

Interesting colour scheme!

I’m guessing 1950’s or early ’60’s.

This is the floor.

I’m sure these are the original wooden fittings.

Spruced up and shiny breakfast bar.

I think I prefer this shot without the green curtains.

An unexpected gem which broke the journey for us.

We also had another stop and took a quick look around a flea market. This cooler was a mere $225!

Glad we didn’t really need it.

These two boys were sharing a moment 🙂

There were so many other interesting upcycling shops, thrift stores and shacks en route, it was a shame we couldn’t stop at more of them.

    That diner looks amazing – just like you see in old American films although I don’t remember any curtains!
