Restaurant reopens with a new look
A small diner on Highway 9, south of the Mt. Baker Highway, has reopened for business. The inside of Acme Diner is light and cheery with bright red booths and prints of 1950s movie stars and cars hanging on the yellow walls. A neon jukebox sits adjacent to the large glass ice cream freezer, next to the red counter where customers can sit on barstools to eat.
The 1950s décor and bright coloring is a transformation for this family-owned restaurant. Formerly known as Acme Café, the Acme Diner serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Frances Eustis opened the diner in May. “My goal is to serve hearty diner food while using local produce,” Eustis said.
The restaurant sources locally, including produce from Moondance Farm, Acme Ice Cream, beer from Boundary Bay Brewery and other local craft brewers and Washington wines.
The menu includes soups made from scratch, hand-cut fries and burgers made to order with hand-ground meat. The breakfast menu includes omelets and scrambles, which are served all day. Pizza will soon be on the menu, Eustis said, adding that the menu is continually being altered based on what customers like.
Acme Diner is located at 2045 Valley Highway in Acme and is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday For more information, visit acme-diner.com or call 360/595-0150. X
