In this day and age when almost all of our food service establishments are franchised, it was a real delight to find The Downtowner Cafe. It took me back to the days of my childhood when this type of diner was the norm and not the exception. There were the sounds of happy people as they shared tables with strangers, the sound of dishes being cleared off tables and being washed, and the sound of waitresses, busily scurrying between the narrow aisles taking orders and filling coffee cups. The food was very good and the prices - well, I had to check the menue twice just to make sure I was reading it right. Good food, fun "retro" diner, great price.
