Blue Moon Diner

What It Is: A hipster-fabulous restaurant parading as a diner, with a solid selection or burgers, sandwiches, and breakfast foods.  Located on West Main Street (not too far from the ABC store, maybe you’ve seen it.)

Why It’s Rad: I have to confess.  There is a part of me that hates this place.  It’s the shameful, secret, hidden hipster part of me.  A “diner” decorated with retro editions of board games, local art, and vinyl galore and too much chrome, AND serves PBR AND hosts local musicians for small, intimate shows?  It’s all too telling.  Blue Moon Diner reflects too clearly what I am and what I enjoy,* and I am ashamed.

All that being said, it’s a goddamn adorable place.  Just look at this picture, which is poorly representative but still manages to be appealing enough:

Don’t expect fast service if you’re going during prime brunch time, but there’s breakfast all day–maybe you want Ghiradelli chocolate chip pancakes at 4 in the afternoon?  I strongly recommend the burgers, which are cooked to your desired doneness and always with a nice blacked sear.  Also available with artisan bacon, many choices of cheese, and lots of other things to make you feel like a hipster foodie with a trust fund.  The fries are delicious too, but maybe don’t waste your time on a milkshake from this place.

*except for the PBR part.  There is no part of my being that likes PBR.
