Yankee Clipper Dinner

Today I became the mayor of Yankee Clipper Diner on @foursquare! I really have no idea what that means. Yankee Clipper is a diner at the corner of Main Street and Teller Avenue in Beacon, New York. When I am home and don’t want to cook breakfast or lunch I come here. It’s a diner, nothing fancy just generous portions of good food served hot and fast. And the coffee, oh boy, the coffee.

Since we are doing a kitchen remodel, Sarah and I headed here for lunch. She had banana pancakes, with ham and one egg. I had a sandwich called “Happy Waitress”. It was described as an open-faced grilled cheese with bacon and tomato. I substituted a baked potato for the fried. It came with Coleslaw and a pickle like every sandwich you order in New York. It looked like two slices of bread toasted, placed next to each other, on top was bacon, tomato and over it all sliced cheese melted. I cut the tomato and folded it up and ate it like a sandwich. The potato was just that, a potato baked and on the plate, so I could cut it up and fix it any way I liked.

Sarah was impressed that the pancakes had “real bananas”. I have had their cherry pie, it tastes like they use canned pie filling, but it was still good. Baked on premises is just that. We had strawberry ice cream with whipped cream for dessert.

The owner’s husband walks around the restaurant, talking to people he knows and refilling water glasses and coffee cups. Someone Sarah went to school with works there and says hello when he sees her. Just your friendly neighborhood diner.

Prices are moderate, typical diner prices.

You might think, that being in New York, the diner is named after Joe DiMaggio who was nicknamed the “Yankee Clipper”, however there is a picture of a plane on the diner door, so I’m thinking ….

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.

    Hi Bella, I’m just jumping over from Sarah’s blog because of your comment about wishing you’d gone with Kindle instead of the Sony Reader. Could you tell me why? I’m seriously considering getting the e-book, but was leaning toward the Sony. Would the Kindle be better, you think?
