1548 Bonanza St, Walnut Creek
Thanks to a reader for sending word that Hubcaps Diner is closing in downtown Walnut Creek. This Sunday, January 3rd will be its final day so stop by to reminiscence about old times while drinking a malted milkshake. Keep in mind that there is still Mel’s Diner (same owner), located a few blocks from Hubcaps if you’re hankering for that 50’s diner style.
The same owner and staff will be back by April with the Sacramento based restaurant Broderick Roadhouse. Check out their menu here. In addition to lunch and dinner they will also offer breakfast. Looks like with the new Lyric apartments coming next year across the street from Hubcaps they want to take things a bit more upscale. Their goodbye letter notes:
In just a few short months we will be re-opening as BRODERICK ROADHOUSE. Our menu will consist of omelets, skillets, eggs benedicts and hotcakes for brunch, but will feature a wide variety of burgers, salads and upscale bistro sandwiches.
