Road Island Diner

Today we left out hotel at 8 AM with Neil and Laura to visit the Heber Valley Railroad. But first, we had to have breakfast. Coming up next will be the post tho the railroad.

I have no idea how Neil finds these places. The “Road Island Diner” is in the town of Oakley UT, which is a good ways north of SLC.

We drove on I-80 heading northeast towards Evanston, WY. I-80 is also known as Parley’s Canyon, named after a Mormon pioneer named Parley P Platt who was exploring for a better route through the Wasatch mountains other than Emigration Canyon. It is a truly beautiful stretch of roadway.

It was chilly up there in those hills. I haven’s worn my winter jacket in years.

As one can see, the diner is a classic Art Deco like many others of the same type. It was prefabricated in 1939 in Elizabeth NJ. It measures 60’x16′.

We all had a delicious breakfast. So I decided to order my usual bacon & eggs, over medium and sour dough toast. The hash browns were not that great, otherwise everything was great. Here’s an inside view.

Here we are at our table in the diner.
