I have a craving for Coconut Creme pie and there's only one place that I want it from.  The Red Arrow Diner.  BUT, I'm in Dover and I would have to drive all the way to Manchester or another one of their locations to get it.

I think it's time that the Seacoast has a Red Arrow Diner here.

Apologies to My Other Favorite Bakeries

I have lots of favorite bakeries on the Seacoast, but the coconut cream pie at the Red Arrow is to die for.  Maybe it's because I had it in the middle of the night once when I was coming home from a night of debauchery.  Whatever the case may be, I've loved it ever since.

Have You Ever Been To The Red Arrow?

If the answer is no, you're either not a politician or you don't live near one or both.  The Red Arrow diner has four locations in Concord, Londonderry, Manchester, and Nashua.  There was a location in Milford, however, it closed for good in 2019.  I think it's time to open up a new location here on the Seacoast.

Countless Celebrities Have Visited Red's

New Hampshire has the Nation's first primary in the Presidential election.  Something we are very proud of.  If you are a politician running for any office, not necessarily just the Presidential election, there are certain places in the State that you MUST visit and The Red Arrow, specifically in Manchester, is on the list.  Celebrities also visit the Red Arrow from time to time.  If you go into the Diner, you will see small gold plates on the seats telling you who sat there.

This is a SMALL list of all the Celebrities That Made a Visit to The Red Arrow

  • Adam Sandler
  • RuPaul
  • Paul Newman
  • Barenaked Ladies
  • Guy Fieri
  • Diane Sawyer
  • Governor Chris Sununu

It's High Time To Have a Red Arrow Diner on the Seacoast, but Not Dover

Dover already has Harvey's and Duston's bakery, so we're all set there.  It can't be in Portsmouth either because that's home to The Friendly Toast.  Maybe Lee.  I don't think there's a diner in Lee, so maybe they should look there.   OH WAIT, there's Sunny's on Route 125, so that's out.  How about Epping?  Yeah, Epping needs a diner.

The Manchester location is open 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week

It's so true!  Hard to believe, I know, but you CAN get an extreme craving for one of their Manch-Vegas omelets stuffed with grilled chicken tenders, tomatoes, and cheese at 3 am and the Red Arrow will be open to quell that craving.

Not to mention the aforementioned craving for coconut cream pie that I had.  There's nothing like opening that door and walking in the middle of the night.

So, Red Arrow Diner Peeps?  Wanna come to the Seacoast?  Call me.  I'll help find people to work there!
