Akum stopped by the Miss Albany Diner for one last breakfast this week. From her thoughts on the place closing:

There's something about this place that's essentially Albany: Gritty, without pretension, but blessed with a long history, a sense of humor and more than a few hidden treasures. No, that's not it, exactly - its treasures aren't hidden. The place just didn't feel the need to crow about them.

She reports tomorrow (Friday) is the last day before the diner closes.

Matt Baumgartner and his businesses partners have bought the Miss Albany building -- but not the name or recipes -- and are still figuring out what they'll do with it. (Be sure to read Matt's comment.)

I'll miss the flies in the warm weather most of all. Where will they go now?

I'm hoping I can get there one last time for breakfast tomorrow.

NOooooooo. This makes me so sad. We just moved up here from a quality breakfast starved town, and were so psyched that we found The Miss Albany. We've been going there for breakfast every weekend since and we are going to miss it dearly:( I guess I'll need some suggestions for a new place.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
