The Royal Diner originally from Kingston NY is reborn in Springfield and opens on May 6th, 2003 in its reincarnation as The Springfield Royal Diner with sweet tunes from the Wurlitzer Jukebox and great homecooked food from the newly renovated and extended diner kitchen.

The opening is marked by a ribbon cutting ceremony assisted by the town officials and Springfield citizens. Customers were already sitting in their booths patiently awaiting for the ribbon to be cut and for the waitresses to start serving the much awaited diner fare. As soon as the ribbon was cut the Wurlitzer jukebox started playing, the waitresses started serving the delicious true diner fare. The cooks had been busily cooking since early morning preparing for the diner's first day.

Diner owners Laurentiu Traineanu and Roger Cawvey deal with last minute details before the ribbon cutting ceremony. Murphy's Law is at play here again. The light in the pie refrigerator is all of sudden not working anymore. But this is not something that will stop anyone from digging into the delicious pies awaiting their first customers.
Juli and the Diner's first customer
Albert Pixley was the first patron at the new eatery. Pixley, who said he’s been keeping an eye on the construction over the last few months, ordered the shrimp basket with a hot cocoa. He said the food was good and the atmosphere was even better. Pixley, an area resident who worked for 42 years in the machine tool industry, planned to return today with his camera.

“It’s quite attractive what they’ve done here,” Pixley said. “This is something a little more than is around here usually.”

Julia served the first diner meal to Albert Pixley.

The Springfield Royal Diner is finally open.
