Driving down Swamp Road in Doylestown yesterday, we saw the Cross Keys Diner is open again. This is good news.

Until it closed suddenly early this summer, the Cross Keys was one of our favorite places. The food was good, the waitresses got to know you quickly, the crowd of regulars was cordial, and we could usually find a place at the counter even on the most crowded Sunday mornings. If two stools weren’t adjacent to one another, folks would usually shift around to make room. In late May or June, it closed for the owners’ personal reasons. By coincidence, Lynne and I were there for breakfast on the last day it was open, and we’d noticed an air of tension that we’d never felt there before.

We’ve missed the Cross Keys Diner. We hear it’s being re-opened by someone who’d cooked there before, and we see from scanning the Intelligencer’s classifieds they’ve been hiring for all positions. Sometime soon, we’ll get over there to check it out.
