This is the sign of the first Dunkin' Donuts that ever opened in Massachusetts.

The only Dunkin’ Donuts diner, located in Lake Park, Florida, is closing on August 16. The restaurant will undergo renovations that will make it look like other Dunkin’ Donuts locations around the country.

Back when the chain first opened in the 1960s, founder Bill Rosenburg opened five in Massachusetts. He also opened a diner-style outpost in Lake Park in October 1962, with hopes of expanding the restaurant.

Unlike the Dunkin’ Donuts you usually see, this restaurant has banquet booths and a diner counter. It also offers a full menu with traditional diner fare like pancakes and burgers. If you’re in a hurry, you can grab a standard doughnut or bagel from the walk-up counter.

Other menu items unique to the Dunkin’ Donuts diner are biscuits and gravy, gravy fries, chili fries, hot dogs with chili and onions, and a fish and grits dinner special.  


The Lake Park Dunkin’ Donuts will reopen on August 31.
