Crossroads Dinor – Edinboro, PA

I visited the Crossroads Dinor back in March of 2007. The Dinor (a regional spelling of diner) was originally a trolley, built in 1913, decommissioned some time later, and hauled to this site and converted in 1929. Outside, many of its distinctive trolley features still remain, like the curved front and rear and the bumpers. Inside, the trolley section is not used much anymore, the main focus of the restaurant is the spacious, yet homey dining room attached on the back. And its no wonder. Though the trolley is very interesting architecturally, with its curved ceiling, woodwork, and green windows, it’s really very small, especially since they have bumped the kitchen out into it, making an already narrow structure even more narrow.
The diner is located at 101 W Plum St, Edinboro, PA, on the corner of Rt. 6 and Erie.

  1. I worked here in the middle 70’s an it was the greatest….it’s a very cool town almost like “Northern Exposure” at that time. I haven’t been back in many years but would love to, I still keep in touch with friends there…..

  2. The Crossroads Dinor closed several years ago, but has recently been bought and will reopen after renovations. The new owners sound like they are serious about returning it to its former glory, but better.

  3. I attended a trial-run dinner and brunch last week at the Diner. I was very impressed with food, service, the new bar/lounge and the detailed renovations of the Crossroads Dinner. Congratulations to the new owners who have done a magnificent job ! Can’t wait until it opens soon.
