Sneak Peek: Morning Glory Diner Opens Feb. 14, Serving Classic American Diner Fare on Cherokee Street

As reported by Feast in August, opening a diner has always been a dream for the local rising star chef, who previously served from-scratch sausages and bratwursts with her business, The Cut, just down the street inside The Fortune Teller Bar. Ellis works with general manager David Stavron and kitchen manager Chris Hill to bring the concept to the neighborhood.

โ€œItโ€™s just classic American diner food โ€“ no frills really. The goal is to make it affordable,โ€ Ellis says. โ€œIt has a different feel than Courtesy or Tiffanyโ€™s though. We really wanted to create an environment that makes people want to come back often. I really want the feel of this place to be something different and be something special.โ€

Morning Glory Diner fills the space previously occupied by Vista Ramen, which held its final dinner service in August. Ellis brought in her own touches to brighten up the already beautifully renovated space, such as a sea-foam green paint job, her great grandmotherโ€™s vintage kitchen accessories and macrame hanging plants.
