Providence may have
more diners per capita than any city in the country.
They are all over and most serve a great breakfast.
The Seaplane Diner
sure does. Everything from corned beef hash to
eggs benedict. I went for Linguica sausage
(Portuguese and found along the coast from Rhode Island
to the North Shore of Massachusetts) and eggs.
The Seaplane also
serves a Rhode Island delicacy, coffee milk - milk with
coffee syrup. According to my favorite Rhode
quahog.org, Coffee Milk is the official
beverage of the State of Rhode Island.
Back to the
Seaplane. It got its name from the long gone
Seaplane depot across the street. The juke boxes
at the booths are for show - the owner can't find parts
to fix them.
