50’s Diner is one place to remember when looking for a good place to eat in Baguio. I have fond memories of 50’s Diner in Baguio City years ago when it was located across Burnham Park. There’s a big difference. 50’s Diner was more spacious then, and the waitresses moved around on skates, giving that good ol’ 50’s feel.
Today, Glenn 50’s Diner is located on General Luna Road, near the corner of Leonard Wood Road and Brent Road, where the famous Pink Sisters chapel is located. We ate lunch at 50’s Diner, and although we were there around 11 a.m., the restaurant was already packed with people that we had to wait to be seated. Parking was also a problem in the busy area, so we had to park near the Pink Sister’s chapel.
50’s Diner serves American food at very affordable prices. People can have a hearty meal from around 80 pesos. The fruit shakes are good too. No wonder there were so many people lining up to be seated. The restaurant provides fairly fast and friendly service.
50’s Diner still retained the 50s look it had: the jukebox, posters of celebrities who dominated the decade, and of course, 50s music all day and night. It would be great if the restaurant could install a jukebox that is functional. That would be a great treat to children who can’t imagine how such a machine operates. The kids had fun playing with the jukebox and the small car just outside the resto.
