Loop Diner - Duluth

The Loop Diner was located in Duluth on 2nd Avenue West between Superior and First Streets on the west side of the avenue, a few doors down from First Street. It was owned by Harvey Tesler.

Information courtesy of Robert Davis (March 2022):
Harvey was married to Noretta, who was a fixture at the Jewish Educational Center as a nursery school teacher. Harvey manned the grill at the diner and would shout out "take it away, Rosedale" when an order was ready. The Loop Diner has since been replaced by the NSBC auto bank (North Shore Bank of Commerce). A 2018 picture of that location is shown below.
