Bremerton’s Cora’s Diner Closing It’s DoorsAugust 27th, 2010 by adice
Cora’s gave us the Bremersaurus burger (two beef patties, bacon, cheese and all the fixin’s), lumpia, on Thursdays, a decent pork adobo at pretty affordable prices. And for anyone who ate there with even the slightest frequency, a familiar greeting.
For us here at the Kitsap Sun, Cora’s was a place we could always feel welcome, get some bits of conversation, and an occasional video tip from co-owner Rick Foxworth. After about the third time I went in, Cora already knew my name.
And if you went pretty frequently, it was a place you could get the occasional special extra like ice cream sundaes (maybe Cora let everyone have those, but we’d just like to feel special).
I wish I had gone more frequently.
Because today, we’re going to have to say goodbye to that spot on Fourth Street. Their rising rent was just too much, Cora told me a couple weeks ago. I haven’t yet heard final plans for what she’ll do next. I wasn’t sure if she was just joking or if she’s actually going to do it, but Cora mentioned a mobile food cart. I hope whatever she does, food and Bremerton are both involved.
I and others at the Sun plan on having lunch there today, and I imagine others working downtown will join us. I’ll update this post after lunch.
