Sunrise Diner in Jim Thorpe
Here's the Sunrise Diner sitting on its original location in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania in 2008 shortly before Diversified Diners acquired it.
The classic diner in its original setting.
The Sunrise Diner with its side entry no longer in use.
The diner would have come from the factory with Flex-glass, but over the years, owners would elect to remove and paint the space rather than replace with original.
The diner's back bar and ceiling shows the half-century of wear, tear, and nicotine accumulation.
Previous ownership obviously appreciated the diner's original design, but marginal operation didn't allow for enough basic maintenance.
Thankfully, we didn't have to uncover the diner's original beauty underneath several bad renovations!
The interior, though mostly original, had seen its better days. Evidence of a leaking roof can be seen on the terrazzo floor.
