Miss Lorraine Pawtucket Review

Should you go?

Yes!

This is a charming diner with a classic American feel and delicious food.

Overview

We had a great time at the Miss Lorraine diner in Pawtucket, RI. It was the perfect setting for a fantastic meal on a rainy day in May.

It’s located in a very unassuming area. You almost don’t expect it to be there, but then, the beautiful train car that makes up the front entrance pops out at you as your stomach starts to growl.

You might think the car is all there is to the Miss Lorraine, but head through a small door inside and see the place open up into a full-sized restaurant!

If you’d like to try it out for yourself, it’s located at:

560 Mineral Spring Ave, Pawtucket, RI 02860

Food & Drink

Brian –  I got the smoked salmon benedict. Here’s the description:

Two poached eggs, on an english muffin, smoked salmon, hollandaise sauce, capers, red onion and dill

Price: $9.99

This meal was excellent. The eggs were poached to perfection, with runny yolks. There was just enough hollandaise, which was complimented nicely by the dill.

The salmon was an interesting addition that I hadn’t tried before, and the capers added that signature salty touch.

One thing that’s not mentioned is the home fries, which were really good. Big, crispy, and not at all dry. Overall, a quality meal for a very reasonable price. And filling, too – it was 5 hours before we ate again!

Shio –  I got the bagel & lox. Here’s the description:

Smoked salmon, herbed cream cheese, red onions, tomato, and capers on a toasted bagel

Price: $7.79

A dish that’s perfect for brunch, packed with generous portions of salty salmon and smooth cream cheese. It’s a satisfying plate that will fill you up.

The tomatoes and red onions add a healthy touch, and the caper bush serves as a flavorful accent, making this dish even more delicious and palate-pleasing.

One thing to be aware of is this combination of ingredients can be quite oily, so if that sort of thing bothers you, you might ask for the dish to be altered or consider another item.

Vibe

From the outside, it may seem like there’s only the train car, but hidden behind the walls are table seating and a bar. The interior showcases a design reminiscent of a vibrant 1950s movie world, with impactful shades of red. It’s like stepping into a different time.

Inside the diner, the ambiance is buzzing with energy and nostalgia, transporting guests to a bygone era. The attention to detail in the design creates an immersive experience that complements the delicious food and drinks served aboard this unique dining establishment.

Parking

Parking is definitely a little tight if you’re looking for a spot close to the entrance (which we were since it was a rainy day). This is probably the only negative we found when it comes to the Miss Lorraine. We ended up having to wait for someone to leave the restaurant and pull out of their spot.

Some other things to be aware of with regard to the parking lot:

  • Pull into the lot entrance further from the diner. This way, you’ll be driving in the direction the parked cars are pointing.
  • We didn’t investigate this but there does appear to be additional parking, again toward the end of the lot away from the diner.
  • Visibility is low when pulling out! You’ll likely have to “poke your nose” out into the road a bit so oncoming traffic can notice you and slow down.

Excellent experience. I have always wanted to try this, but did not think there was a chance I could paint anything that looked remotely good lol.The venue is comfortable and inviting, you get 2 free drinks, a beautiful canvas, all the paint you need, and the instruction was really good. They pick ideas that look awesome when finished, but that you can take small, manageable steps toward creating.Both my GF and I will definitely be back for some other beautiful pieces! The only negative is that on a Friday night, the crowd can get a little rowdy and it can be tough to hear the instructor. Other than that, wonderful - these folks do a really great job.

I absolutely adore the diner. They have the best service and their food is always stellar. I love the retro feel for the main space and they mace more seating on the other side. It’s truly just a great place to go for breakfast and I love bringing our friends and family here!

Our first time here... Pleasantly surprised how this location was. Loved the diner antique look but the back was huge, plenty of room for big parties. Great experience from the waitresses even though there was only three, It took longer than expected but food was great. We had hot chocolates, coffee, huevos rancheros, avocado toast, Florentine eggs & for the kids just the 2 eggs special.

Great old school looking diner. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Avocado toast was great and bacon, avocado, eggs benedict were delicious too. I loved the infinite coffee cup.

I had the strawberry stuffed brioche french toast. Very dry, chef didn't soak the bread long enough. Should be custard like. Cream cheese stuffing was non existent. Had strawberries and whipped cream on the plate that was good. Side of bacon was very good, crispy.My son had the Salmon Benedict, he really enjoyed it. Coffee good as usual. Service was great.
