R.I.P. Sam Mickey

When Morning Glory Diner opened at 10th and Fitzwater in 1997, it quickly drew attention to a charming neighborhood that people in Center City and other neighborhoods simply never thought about. Soon visitors from all over were regularly standing in line for weekend brunch, and not long after that, Morning Glory became a fixture that felt like it had been there forever. Owner Sam Mickey had everything to do with that, and with the neighborhood. She will be missed. [Eater Philly]
