Much to the shock of the Under the Button blog, Philly Diner has closed its doors at 39th and Walnut. The formerly late-night diner (it ceased being 24-hours a day after a 2009 shooting) has closed after its lease was not renewed.
University of Pennsylvania students are quoted as being “devastated” over the closing in a Daily Pennsylvanian article, though one commenter refers to the diner as a “cesspool.”
UPDATE: Under the Button follows up that the diner’s contents will be available via an online auction.
