Ice Cream Man Come see me in April and I'll fatten you up.

Is yours the trailer on the north side of the street near the millstream just west of where Steen's Dairy Bar was located?

This is an old picture, been painted, and different tenants.
I own the building, makes for cheap rent.

FiveAcreFoods And Hepcat . . . No, I'd be careful not to fall into parody. I've visited enough cheesy attempts at nostalgic diners to know what works and what doesn't.  I like the soup rack too.

 
You'll need a Kellogg's Snack Pack display as well if you want to be a proper diner. If you can't find an old-fashioned metal one like the one featured in the first picture, plastic ones continue to be sold these days:
