There's something special about a 24-hour diner. The mix of neon lights and breakfast food, especially in the late hours of the night, is a combination you can't find anywhere else.
In a post that excited many Hudson Valley residents, the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce (UCRCC) announced that not only did a beloved diner near Kingston, NY recently celebrate new ownership with a ribbon cutting ceremony, but the restaurant has plans to return to 24-hour service.

Michael's Diner in the News
This isn't the first time Michael's has been in the news this year. Two Hudson Valley men were recently arrested for stealing used cooking oil from the diner valued at over $1,000. The suspects have been charged with grand larceny and are almost certainly not welcome to enjoy a 3am omelet when Michael's extends their hours.
While Michael's may be one of the only 24-hour diners in the Hudson Valley, there's still plenty of amazing spots with more traditional restaurant hours.
