I had an experience there back in the 1980's. While in grade school, as a small child, I knew this young girl named Debra Stein. Didn't see or hear much about her after about the 3rd or 4th grade. This was way back when in Rochester, N.Y. I was living in N. Tonawanda after quitting a job with a carnival...Think it was called field day. Anyway, I visited the 412 Diner for the first time. As I was having coffee, I glanced up and saw a picture hanging on the wall with a caption that read...EAT HERE, AND DIE IN THE ALLEY!!! It was signed by D. Stein. I asked the waitress if that happened to be Debra Stein from Rochester NY, and she said yes it is, and I'm her best friend. I finally did end up meeting Debra...Wow, she never changed!!! Hope if anyone knows her, Hope she's doing well. Her old friend Tom from School # 34 in Rochester say's hello

My mother and Aunt ran the diner from 1959-1976. My dad and I would have dinner there every other week when my mom was working. He would get up at 4am just to start making the home-made fry cakes that they sold. I would work summers and if they got busy I would help out. Great memories. I remember Millie - Her last name was Brant.

This dilapidated building was a trailer that fed the workers on the Erie Canal. They would haul it around. The ceiling has a dome ceiling of wainscoating. I WENT IN THERE ONE TIME AND SUSIE was waitressing you had to tell her what kind of eggs you wanted or she would bring you raw eggs in a bowl and then stirred them with her finger. The mafia guys used to eat in there too. The house behind it was owned by a retired teach named Mrs. Smith.

Mmmm.....corned beef hash, eggs sunny side up, and toast covered in jelly, while totally baked from drinking all night long back in 93-94. I miss the 412, and Ma Mitch's tacos from down the street :)
