capitol city diner.

we tried out capitol city diner last week and loved it. it just opened up in february after the owners bought the vintage 1940’s diner car off ebay last year and moved it to DC. how cool is that?

we like that they’re open 24 hours on the weekend so we can get our burger or pancake fix at any hour.
and i like any place that makes good waffle fries. so we were sold.

  1. oh my, cheerwine, a personal NC favorite!

  2. love this! such a fun idea. we have an
    old train with 4 cars sitting still with
    shops and a diner inside here in ohio
    too and we love it. i can remember walking
    up and down when i was young.

    and waffle fries. mmmm mmmm.
