Historic Village Diner in Red Hook, NY is an authentic 1920s roadside diner offering a complete breakfast, lunch and dinner menu featuring home-made, fresh-made-to-order dishes.

After years of catering to travelers on Dutchess County’s major highways, the “Historic” Village Diner now enjoys continued popularity as a community-oriented restaurant and the focal point of much local nostalgia.

The Diner is significant as a distinctive example of early-twentieth century American roadside architecture surviving exceptionally intact from its date of manufacture in the 1920’s. It embodies distinguishing characteristics of the type and period in its streamlined metal railroad dining car inspired design, which was intended to evoke, at once, the ideas of travel, food cleanliness and modern efficiency.
