A break in the winter weather brought a little bit of sunshine to the area this weekend. We took full advantage of it and got outside to do some exploring. The adventure this week pointed us to Albion where we walked on the trails at the Whitehouse Nature Center after fueling up at Yesterday’s Diner in Litchfield.


Yesterday’s Diner

My husband is a huge Beatles fan. He owns every album, has watched all the documentaries and knows all the words to any of the songs. We saw Paul McCartney in concert this summer at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids and I’m pretty sure he was happier at that time than he was on our wedding day two months prior.

On a Sunday drive we found ourselves in Litchfield and noticed the small diner. We returned the following weekend to the small town to try it out. At the time, we were not aware that the name “Yesterday’s” is referring to the Beatles and were surprised (and delighted) to find that half of the restaurant was filled with Beatles memorabilia from the walls to the menus.

They have a small unlimited breakfast buffet as well as full menu options, and are open for lunch and dinner. The menu provided the expected diner foods along with some creatively named Beatles items (like “The Walrus” that consists of three eggs, two bacon, two sausage, two ham, hash browns and toast)  and appeared to be full of regular clientele. The decor and atmosphere added so much character. The food was good and the service was kind and quick. Yesterday’s Diner  is a very cute, small town breakfast option if you are ever in the area!

The Husband ordered the “Yellow Submarine.” Two Eggs, Sausage and hash browns with sausage gravy

Farmers Omelet for me, bacon, sausage, ham egg, onion, and tomato with a side of coffee
