About Us

Haven Brothers started out as a horse drawn cart. Now the iconic stainless steel Haven Bros Diner serves up the best late night eats in Providence, and the Haven Brothers mobile catering fleet takes the taste of downtown beyond city limits.

Our Beginnings

Haven Brothers is one of the oldest mobile diners in the country. From our humble beginnings as a horse-drawn wagon to our now iconic stainless-steel truck and mobile catering fleet, Haven Brothers has the best late night eats in Providence with milkshakes in a variety of flavors, root beer floats, and signature curated comfort dishes.

TV Feature

The Today Show

On April 9, 2008 the diner was brought to Mid-town Manhattan and parked outside the NBC Studios at 30 Rockefeller Plaza for the Today Show.

Hosts Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer had both worked at the NBC 10 studios in Providence two blocks from our location beside Providence City Hall, and each had chosen it as their favorite old-time diner.


Documentary Film

The Oldest Diner on Wheels

On June 7, 2014 a documentary filmed by Jeff Toste telling the story of Haven Bros premiered at the historic Columbus Theater in Providence.

The 75-minute documentary whose full title Haven Brothers: Legacy of the American Diner took home the Providence Film Festival award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival in 2014.


Family Affair

Meet the Giustis

The Giusti family are the third owners since Anne Haven opened Haven Brothers Diner herself.

Owner and patriarch Saverio “Sal” Giusti was born in Naples, Italy. He left in 1968 at the age of 25 with nothing more than a few dollars in his pocket and the clothes on his back, landing in Montreal where he completed paperwork and waited to be accepted into the United States. In 1969 Sal moved to West Warwick with an uncle who sponsored him for citizenship, and he was proud to have his first job at the Pontiac Print Millworks. A few years later, he landed a job at Ceiba-Giegy chemical company in Cranston. The company moved out of state in 1986, and that’s when Sal purchased Haven Brothers Diner.

At the age of 40 Sal took a chance on an industry he knew nothing about, but was confident that he and his family could carry on the tradition of the Haven Brothers.

Today the next generation of the Giusti family is ready to continue the tradition, but Sal isn’t ready to retire quite yet. Sal continues to work seven days a week, providing what patrons have always loved: the best comfort food in the city.  Sal says, “We have been entrusted with a piece of history and we work every day to uphold the tradition that started in 1893.”
