Daily Diner Frogtown
Daily Diner Frogtown. Let’s call it the little diner that will. Sitting like a bright, friendly beacon in Frogtown, the Daily Diner has opened to serve the neighborhood some stacked pancakes, hearty sandwiches, and a killer-crisp chicken and waffles set. But it’s not just serving the eater; it’s serving the community, nay the service industry at large. The United Gospel Mission is responsible for bringing this place to life, as it believes “the road to recovery starts in the kitchen.” The mission’s culinary training program takes people out of hopelessness and puts them in the kitchen; the role of this diner is to give them some training and real-world experience before sending them on their way to building a successful life. Changing lives with a side of fries, indeed.
