A reader on theÂ inside sends a shot of the ex-59 Diner on Farnham St., nowÂ up and running as El Beso Cantina.Â As of Christmas, theÂ space is once again open 24 hours a day, though the pale turquoiseÂ paint and Elvis kitschÂ have been swapped out for warmer earth tones and decorative sombreros.Â The new occupants also appearÂ to beÂ attempting to fill the area’s 3am pancake niche, covered for nearly 30 years by the departed diner, by offeringÂ an array of American breakfast items along withÂ the Tex-Mex fare.
FollowingÂ the August sighting of TABC signage for the Alcaliente group, additional permits for redoing the space were issuedÂ in October; non-24-hour service looks to have started earlier this month. Per the reader’s report,Â both halal meats and pork are on offer.
