Flo's Clam Shack
Portsmouth, RI
Haven Bros. Diner
Providence, RI
Flo's Clam Shack has been here since 1936. Their building was destroyed by hurricanes in 1938 and 1991. There is also another location in Middletown, RI. [map]

The Haven Brothers Diner is not a "true" diner but more of an overgrown lunch truck. This local institution dates back to 1893 when Anne P. Haven set up a horse-drawn lunch wagon downtown. The business has had several different owners over the years. The truck used today is from 1949. The interior has room for only four stools. This photo was taken during the day where it is stored. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

Warwick, RI
Middletown, RI
Del's specializes in frozen lemonade. The family business goes back to great grandfather DeLucia who made the earliest lemonade in 1840 in Naples, Italy. The family's first stand opened in 1948 in Cranston, RI. There are now many other locations in Rhode Island. For more, see this website.

The Warwick building looks just like the ones in Cumberland, RI and East Providence, RI. [Warwick map]; [Middletown map]
