Goodbye to The Hop, Hello to At the Corner

Downtown eatery, The Hop Diner, will soon close its doors after serving up delicious burgers and shakes for more than seven years. We’re sad to hear that it’s closing but excited to learn it will soon be opening under new ownership, a new face and a new name: At the Corner.

Located at the corner of Scott and Markham, the 50s style restaurant’s last day of operation will be Wednesday, Nov. 26. The newly renovated hot spot will open its doors near the first of the year.

“It’s a fresh take on American cuisine,” said owner Kamiya Merrick. “We’re just really excited.”

So are we, Kamiya. So are we. 

At the Corner will serve all the Americana favorites like burgers, salads, fries and onion rings. The modern diner will be open for breakfast and lunch, and will also feature daily chalkboard specials.

But here’s one thing on the menu we’re particularly excited about: poutine. What is this dish, you ask? It’s only fries, cheese curds and gravy; nothing but a pure, heaven sent delight. 

We can already hear our New Year resolutions complaining. We’re not listening.
