Claremont Diner

Today's Claremont Diner at the intersection of College and Claremont Avenues in Oakland sits on the site of a one-time Baskin-Robbins ice cream store.  The owner purchased that business, remodeled it to a diner and opened in 1989.  One of the unusual features is the model train running on tracks close to the ceiling.  The vintage radios also make you feel like you are in a '60s diner anywhere in America.  (excerpted from "Long Time on the Avenue for Many Merchants" from the Rockridge Community Planning Council website)
