Princess Restaurants are Gone, but not forgotten


Princess Restaurant - They were known for being 24 hour diners, having a variety of foods including some Greek.
The last one closed a few years ago, on Lake Avenue, first cutting back hours, then gone, but the building is still there.
Previously Princess Restaurant II at 440 Ridge Road West Closed - building still there (other restaurants tried opening there, but with Kodak diminished, there was not enough business in the area, across the street from the Peppermill Restaurant)
Before that, in 1999, the original one in Brighton at Twelve Corners closed - demolished to be replaced by a chain Drug Store.
(Prior to it being a Brighton Princess, there was a Howard Johnson's Restaurant at that location.)
