Ok, it’s not much of a secret, but I love their Swedish pancakes so much I had to share. This is definitely a local delicacy. I’ve never seen Swedish pancakes on a menu outside the Rockford, Illinois area. Stockholm Inn is located in a strip mall at 2420 Charles Street if you’re ever in the area.
Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved diners, especially 1950s-themed diners or old, out of the way places that haven’t changed their decor in forty years. Greasy spoons that wouldn’t pass a health inspection. Unfortunately, there aren’t many classic diners in Illinois. No, Denny’s doesn’t count. When I moved to New York, I discovered the East Coast loves diners too. I decided to start posting travelogues/reviews of some of the diners I’ve visited over the years. The following is a list of some of the ones I’ll be writing about.
- Mother’s Cupboard in Syracuse, NY
- Doo-Wah Ditty’s Diner in Kimball, SD
- Prospect Mountain Diner in Lake George, NY
- Knotty Pine Diner in Wampsville, NY
- Flo’s Diner in Canastota, NY
- Suburban Diner in Paramus, NJ
- And many more~!
