New Courtesy Diner Going Up at Laclede Station and Heege

The new Courtesy Diner will look very similar to this one, on Hampton Avenue.
The new Courtesy Diner will look very similar to this one, on Hampton Avenue.

St. Louis’ third Courtesy Diner will be open at Laclede Station Road at Heege Road in time for Thanksgiving, if things go according to plan.

The project’s architect, Elmer Wind, said this Courtesy Diner will look almost exactly like the one built about 10 years ago on Hampton Avenue, just south of Highway 40.

The first Courtesy Diner is on Kingshighway near the old Southwest High School.

Wind said the newest will have more parking than the Hampton Avenue location. The property is split by Marlborough and Affton. The building is in Marlborough.

Wind said unlike almost any other place he’s seen, Courtesy Diner becomes a little community gathering place.

“There’s little places like that all over the county, like Spenser’s Grill in Kirkwood, that’s kind of got its own little community identity,” he said.

“I feel happy to have worked on the project, because everybody loves them,” Wind said.”

He said the diner will be open as late as the municipal laws will allow.

The Diner ... plus the CVS. They need to reroute Heege somehow or that Watson/Laclede/Heege tri-way intersection is going to be a disaster.

Oh right the CVS. Lefts off of Heege onto Laclede (which I take frequently) will be impossible. They should consider protected lefts instead of all permissive.

Where is CVS going up at?? I don't get up there a whole lot and didn't know about this.

CVS is going in the Yorkshire Plaza, they tore down a big chunk of the plaza for it, what a mess it will be.
