When the Worcester Lunch Car Diner company went into operation back in 1908 they needed a way to show to potential clients just what it was they were all about. So eventually in 1948 they created the “Star Diner”. This was Diner #812 (they didn’t start their numbering at #1 for luck reasons 🙂 ).
The diner took on its current name “Miss Worcester” just two years later in 1950. It’s literally right across the street from the brick factory. In this next image my back is against the factory while I’m taking the photo of the diner. You can see how the diner is wedged up against the underpass, at the corner of Quingsigamond and Southbridge. This isn’t exactly the nicest part of town. Still, that adds to the diner’s quiet charm.
The inside is quite lovely. There are red stools with metal highlights. There’s a row of red booths opposite them.
Here’s a look at the benches.
While some diners are open all day long this one is strictly a breakfast and brunch spot.
There’s a few steps up to get in the door.
The Miss Worcester is on the National Register of Historic Places, #03001178.
302 Southbridge Street
There isn’t an offical website for them but you can read through reviews on their Yelp page!
Well worth a visit!
