Moe's Diner, a 24-hour greasy spoon institution, shuts its doors for good
Last meal served at 6 a.m. on Dec. 7 to devoted clientele
After serving food to Montrealers for almost six decades, Moe's Diner closed early this morning for the last time.
But not before having one last hurrah with its dedicated clientele.
- Moe's Diner, fixture next to old Montreal Forum, is closing
- Magnan's Tavern closing after 82 years in business
- Bens Restaurant closes forever
The 24-hour restaurant near the old Montreal Forum, officially called Casse-Croûte du Coin, was packed on Sunday and through the night with hungry patrons looking for one last meal.
"My dad used to come here. And I think he was the first one to say yeah, go to Moe's, it's still open. It's always open," one patron told CBC.
Owner Eddie Thomas put the place up for sale earlier in the year, but no one bought it. After the family leaves it, the landlord is going to look for a new tenant.
"I'm interested to see what it will become, I want it to be some place where I can still hang out, so I can be nostalgic," said Katelyn Thomas, Eddie's daughter.
