One of San Francisco's favorite late-night diners will serve its last meal on Christmas Eve.
The Lucky Penny at Masonic Avenue and Geary Boulevard has been a city institution since the 1960s. But it’s closing it’s doors at 2 p.m. on Thursday to pave way for new luxury condos and other retail stores.
It’s been around a lot longer than the Target and Best Buy across the street.
The old-school diner is known for its comfort food like pigs-in-a-blanket and patty mlts.
The place isn't fancy. But customers love it.
On Wednesday evening, the diner was full of loyal fans, enjoying their last meal.
“It’s a shame,” one woman said, “to see everything in San Francisco that we knew leave.”
