Our History

Serving Providence for Over a Century

Haven Bros Diner is a popular food truck and late-night eatery located in Providence, Rhode Island. The diner is housed in a vintage 1950s silver diner trailer and has been a staple of the Providence food scene for over 130 years.

Haven Brothers Diner serves the best late night eats in Providence, a variety of classic American diner fare, such as burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and milkshakes. The diner is especially known for our “Murder Burger.“

Haven Brothers Diner is open late, often until 4:00am, and is a popular spot for late-night revelers and college students. Our location on the corner of Dorrance Street and Fulton Street in downtown Providence makes it a convenient stop for locals and tourists alike.


Founding Mother

Anne Haven

The founder of America’s oldest diner on wheels

Haven Bros Diner was founded in 1893 by widowed immigrant Anne Philomena Haven with the proceeds from her husband Patrick’s life insurance policy. She ran a horse-drawn lunch wagon that served workers at the bustling factories of Providence, Rhode Island. The lunch wagon quickly became a popular spot for hungry workers, and Anne Haven continued to operate it for many years.



A Citywide Fleet

A fleet of lunch wagons serving the city

In the 1930s, Haven Bros expanded into a fleet of lunch wagons, which were strategically located throughout Providence to serve different neighborhoods. The lunch wagons became a beloved part of the community and were known for their affordable prices and delicious food.

Surging Forward

Haven Bros Goes Silver

The iconic silver diner is born

In the 1950s, Haven Bros purchased a vintage 1946 Worcester lunch wagon, which was converted into the iconic silver diner trailer that still operates today. The trailer was outfitted with all of the latest amenities, including a grill, fryer, and soda fountain, and quickly became a popular spot for late-night diners.


A New Era

Haven Bros Has a New Caretaker

The little diner that fought city hall… and won.

First generation immigrant Saverio “Sal” Giusti worked for a chemical company, but when it relocated, he needed a new gig. Giusti took a leap and bought the diner in 1986, making him only the third owner since Anne Haven herself. Much of the city’s history was lost in transformation during The Providence Renaissance in the late 1990s, a period of re-invention and marketing of the capital city. The Haven Bros Diner was almost scrubbed away, but public outcry and the deft leadership of the Giusti Family saved it.
