What Should Go Here? Tom's Family Restaurant

What would you like to see take the place of this soon-to-be-closed beloved Homewood diner?

We know it’s not gone just yet, but as Tom’s Family Diner nears its last days of business, it’s worth thinking about what you’d like to fill the downtown Homewood vacancy.

Owner Tom Kataras said he doesn’t care who occupies the location next, so long as it’s successful.

Of course, Tom’s is irreplaceable, but this presents an opportunity for a fairly dramatic change for Homewood’s central business district.

What should go here?

What do you think? What would you like to see at the crossroads of downtown Homewood?

Please share your ideas in the comments section.

I like the idea of a movie theatre. I would like to see it be a fine arts theatre like GlenArts in Glen Elyn...if not then a smaller sized Traders Joe would be nice Why is the word reject in the upper corner of my above note

Smelling, feeling and browsing books won t be enough for the owner to pay the bills I am afraid. Bookstore is a good idea in theory. Business wise, it s unfortunatelly not a good one.

i second that . Choice at jewel or Walts is quite limited in terms of meat and fish. They carry staple items but other than that not much especially regarding fresh fish.
