On August 3rd, the Idaho Statesman wrote up a feature on the apparently-forthcoming Mom's Diner. The owners said it would open soon, and in fact they wanted to be open by July.
But, according to a leasing flier posted just eight days later, the space on Boise Ave. is for lease - and won't become home to Mom's. The restaurant location at 1211 Boise. Ave. has seen a parade of restaurants in recent years - most recently the Franco's Pizza concept.
Extensive remodel work has stopped and a large for sale sign is now outside the building.
Mom's left a comment on its Facebook page to an inquiry saying "We are down but not out."
We've reached out for comment, we'll let you know what we hear.
The building is listed for sale at $439,000 - with lease options also available.
(Thanks, Ann for the tip!)
