Diner side of Valhalla Café

Diner side of Valhalla Café


The diner side of the Valhalla Café (105 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis), June 15, 1960. Along with dives, “greasy spoons” serving diner fare like corned beef hash, Salisbury steak, and fruit pie were a Gateway mainstay. When later asked about his living situation, one former Skid-Rower bemoaned the fact that in his new home, he couldn’t find a replacement for his regular diner order: pork chops with apple sauce.
