LEAVENWORTH– An iconic Stevens Pass eatery is making a much anticipated comeback. After a fire destroyed the popular 59’er Diner along Hwy 2 at Coles Corner two years ago, owner Joe Cannata vowed to rebuild the diner and the project has been completed.
Cannata says the new 59’er Diner was constructed in Atlanta, GA by the Frey-Moss Company and is currently in transit.
The new diner will arrive via 5 tractor trailers now traveling cross country. Each truck is hauling a fully constructed section of the diner which is scheduled to pass through downtown Leavenworth sometime on Wednesday, August 15th on its way to its final destination of Coles Corner.
The 59’er Diner food truck currently operating in Coles Corner will continue to serve burgers and shakes during the assembly of the new diner. Cranes will start putting the diner sections in place starting Thursday, August 16th.
Opening day is expected to be in the fall of 2018.
