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