Quinte West, ON — A new restaurant in Carrying Place will come with a side of 1950’s nostalgia. Hoss’s Diner is owned by local business owner Michel “Hoss” Bertrand who also owns the Bay of Quinte Vintage Market. For the majority of his life, Hoss has been in the antique industry and his new restaurant is no different. Hoss’s Diner has a vintage look with black and white checkered floors, an original 1956 Seeburg Jukebox, vintage stools at the counter and antique signs on the walls.
Also opening with Hoss’s Diner is an ice cream parlour called Sister Scoop that is owned by Hoss’s wife Karen Bertrand and her sister Patricia Kelly. The parlour is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and serves over 24 flavours of Kawartha ice cream and milkshakes.
With homemade food and a vintage vibe, Hoss’s Diner is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day and offers an all-day breakfast and lunch and dinner menu items like fish and chips, chicken wings, meatloaf and more.
Hoss’s Diner is hosting the Bay of Quinte Vintage Car Show on Saturday, June 29th to celebrate the grand opening of the diner and ice cream parlour with all proceeds going to local charities. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and feature many vintage cars, a 50/50 draw door prizes and music. Tickets for the Elvis tribute concert that starts at 3 p.m. are also available for $25.
