In every great sitcom there is a staple place where the cast gathers, to eat, drink and talk. Cincinnati and NKY seem to have many places that would be a perfect staple where a cast would gather for coffee or food. Hathaway’s diner in downtown, Cincinnati Ohio used to be located in the lower region of Carew Tower, passing the Netherlands plaza, a gorgeous hotel that even if you are a local, you should dine and stay in. Hathaways is a blast from the past, I know because I loved going there as a little girl getting ice cream and milkshakes, paired with crisp yet soft French fries for lunch. There is something so simple yet something so perfect about traveling back in time to a place where calorie counting didn’t matter, and sitting at a counter for a cheeseburger and a coke was an after the doctors appointment treat. The irony in it all should be talked about over Hathaways carrot cake and all the breakfast items. One of my favorite items on the menu right now is the “Geneva” burger with mustard and Mayo. This burger is an ode to an amazing woman who has worked her magic there and for all of us, for years. There is something special about an establishment that has warmed peoples hearts and belly’s since 1956.
If you haven’t been to the new Hathaway’s Diner location, go now, with its retro style, it’s a perfect spot for a simple milk shake lunch date – right before heading to the movies or venturing out around in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.
