Cindy's Diner Wins Indiana Hospitality Award

Cindy’s Diner has been named one of the winners of a Hoosier Hospitality Award, and if you’ve ever visited with owner John Scheele and family, you’ll know it’s well-deserved! Recipients are recognized for going above and beyond their normal duties at a hotel, restaurant, attraction, or other tourism destination to provide excellent customer service. The tiny Valentine-brand diner is located on the Lincoln Highway at 830 S. Harrison Street in downtown Fort Wayne.

An awards reception will be held Monday, May 12, at 1:30 pm in the Statehouse Rotunda in Indianapolis. Cindy’s will receive the award from Lt. Governor Becky Skillman. Light refreshments will be served.

    I finally got to Cindy’s, for the first time, last Sunday and it was even cooler than I expected. That’s something that doesn’t happen all that often. The counter mounted jukebox consoles all work and I was happy to finance (for a quarter) a young man’s first hearing of “Purple People Eater”. As I’m sure you know, they have a poster with this and a couple of other “photos by Butko” in the window. I assume it’s rather new since it mentions the 2008 Hospitality Award.

    Thanks for the update Denny, I’m glad you enjoyed the place. Wish I didn’t have to drive across a couple states to get there myself!!
