Circa 1950

“Cooked in Sight…Must Be Right.”

In 2004 The Subculture group brought back this historic diner built in 1950.  Restoring the key elements like the terrazzo floors and tin ceilings was key in turning back the time while modernizing the menu bringing local and organic ingredients to an old historic greasy spoon diner.

1. The look: It doesn’t get more atmospheric than the Florida Moderne

2. The people: There’s no blase hipster attitude among the rolled jeans-tatted-mustachioed but busy staff, which manages to be welcoming and cheery.of the original 1950 building, married to an addition that looks like a vintage Florida Room. A 2004 retro-chic renovation by restaurateur rRodney Mayo saved the best of the original diner (terrazzo floors, open grill, Formica-topped tables) with modern updates (local art work, red bar stools.)

3. The food:  Comfort food bliss, with pot pies, short ribs, liver & onions, fried chicken with mashed potatoes.  Top it off with Mom’s apple pie, a berry cobbler or a slice of BananaBanana cream.

4. The history:  It’s served generations of West Palm Beachers since Patrick Howley opened his doors in 1950.  Political schmoozing at Howley’s has a long tradition, from local city commission candidates to state and national office seekers including Charlie Crist, John McCain  and George W. Bush.

5. The slogan:  “Cooked in Sight…Must Be Right.”
