The Red Arrow Diner is expanding!

Well, not another diner anyway, they are opening a new cafe on Elm St. Serving up lattes, cappuccinos and panini! It's called the Midtown Cafe, and there is info about it on their Facebook page (no separate website yet).

    Hmm, another crepe & panini place . . . appears to be a trend!

      I'm not quite ready to define it as either of those kinds of places, thinking it will be more of a place to get coffee that has crepes and panini too. Haven't seen anything from their other places that makes me think it would be a place I would really seek out, but I'm always willing to try just once :).

        Never been a fan of the Red Arrow. Can't understand what all the hype is about.

          Their last expansion into Milford left me pretty underwhelmed. Meh .

      This place is a hole-in-the-wall (closet sized) location with a couple of tables outside the door. It's located inside the Beacon Building (no windows)

      There were no crepes and pretty standard cafe fare. Nothing to get excited about and hardly worth mentioning.

        Place is gross..I dont get it either. Everything is cheap and low quality.

          Are they still open on xmas morning? I remember going there years ago and there was a huge line--seemed like a tradition for some folks. We wanted to meet up with some friends in Eastern MA/NH for breakfast, but this is the only diner we could think of!

            I love how they say they have low prices...I don't consider $9 omelets in a diner to be a low price.
