Tin Man Now Open

North Falmouth, Massachusetts—Last month, we sadly reported on Barbara Lind’s continuing struggles to get back into the diner business. We can now report on the end of that particular struggle and congratulate her and her daughter Sue for restoring and reopening the former Wendell’s Corner Snack Bar as the new Tin Man Diner. According to readers, Barbara finally received all necessary permits in mid-June, opening her doors soon thereafter.

We spoke with Barbara this past week, who reports a brisk business. “We’re doing more busines per day than we did at the first Tin Man,” Barbara claimed, referring to her diner that burned down in December of 2000. “We’re doing close to $750 a day!”

Barbara also reports she’s extremely happy to be back in the business after an eight-year forced hiatus, but she expresses some frustration at the diner’s small kitchen. “We have to tell people that our grill is no bigger than their table. You put four orders on it, and it’s full.”

Find the new Tin Man at Old Main and Country Roads in North Falmouth. She’s open from 7 A.M. to 2 P.M. daily.
