“one of the oldest restaurants on wheels”

Haven Brothers Diner in Providence, Rhode Island, is one of the oldest restaurants on wheels in America and was founded in 1888 as a horse drawn lunch wagon. Providence is considered the birthplace of the diner, with the lineage being traced back to Walter Scott's horse-drawn lunch cart in 1872. Haven Brothers Diner is an establishment that owes much more to Scott's original concept than to today's more common stationary constructions of chrome and neon. This Providence tradition goes back to January 10, 1893, when Irish immigrant Anne P. Haven first opened her own horse-drawn lunch wagon, a Thomas Buckley "White House Cafe," at the corner of Dorrance and Washington Streets. She named it for her brothers, who helped her with the business. In 1906 Haven upgraded the wagon to a model manufactured by Wilfred Barriere of Worcester, Massachusetts.

If you're wandering around looking for a late-night milkshake or burger...this is your spot. When the bars close the line for Haven Bros starts growing. So run over quick, if that's what you're in the mood for!
