We're a "diner classic"!


According to Merrimack Valley Magazine, "The Dream Diner has quickly become a local favorite in the Merrimack Valley. Located in Tyngsboro, it opened in 1999 and features classic diner fare served in a 1950s retro atmosphere replete with original signage from the era. It’s open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Top: A busy Sunday morning. Lower left: three generations of Merrimack Valley diner history: Bridget Trepsas, owner Marybeth Shanahan, and daughters Mya and Molly Shanahan. (Click the image to make it larger.)
