Exact location unknown, but probably east of the Neosho River and south of downtown. Description on postcard is “one mile south of Miami, Oklahoma, on Hiway 66”. Last modular diner built by National. Ben Stanley was a former marsha, who later ran for sheriff while running the cafe (in 1954). After retiring from the cafe, Stanley was famed for the sumptuous food he served at private parties.
