The Seaplane Diner in Providence, Rhode Island soars with great food. It’s a circa 1940’s-1950’s O’Mahony that was originally located in Woonsocket then moved to Providence in 1973 and renamed for its proximity to a seaplane port no longer in existence. For years the diner was hidden behind a plywood facade and topped with a mansard roof, but the siding was removed in the late 1990s revealing the glorious stainless steel exterior. Inside there are tableside Seeburg jukeboxes but unfortunately they are silent. The interior is immaculate and the wait staff about as friendly as you’d want.
The breakfasts are classic diner fare, my favorite being the eggs benedict with a side of corned beef hash. But, no matter what you order, count on your food tasting great and the portions more than ample. And, be sure to have a glass of coffee milk!
