50s-Style Diner Rises at Fifth and Park

For 75 years, it was the site of the Park Avenue Diner .

And now, enlarged and remodeled, the restaurant at 417 Park Ave. in Bremerton is back. The Coffee Club Diner opened for breakfast May 18, and will offer breakfast (also espresso and coffee) and lunch daily.

The new place is completely re-done with a retro Fifties theme. The old Park Avenue’s counter is augmented by a new dining area — a wall has been knocked down to the adjoining room.

The menu is ambitious, starting with a number of breakfast platters, baked goods, burgers and sandwiches — pretty much your classic diner fare.

Looks promising … especially if you’re as close as we are here at The Sungeon. With its Fifties theme, though, this place could become a favorite of the fast-growing Retro crowd in Kitsap.

Open hours, as listed on their Web site, are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
