Good food, good fun, and free WiFi
Hi, I'm Lucy DiMino, I started working at the Rocky Cola Cafe 24 years ago when
'servers' were still waitresses! We wore short denim skirts, black polos, red socks, red
aprons and red visors in this Rock n Roll red diner! It was busy, loud and full of music from
our record-filled jukebox. A few things have changed since then: our local nearby cities
have grown and expanded with restaurants, entertainment, outdoor malls and special events.
Honolulu Avenue has become a little 'Mayberry' with a small-town, home-town feeling. Now,
it's our local customers, our community, our friends who fill our booths. I know many of them
by name and feel blessed to be part of this little piece of Honolulu Avenue history.
Rocky Cola is still busy, loud and full of music from our CD-filled jukebox, but for me, it
is now also filled with love. We have evolved into a family diner which my family is a
huge part of. I started working here when my two sons were 6 and 2 years old. My son Scott,
now 30 years old, worked for Rocky Cola for 13 years. Now he is a certified, personal fitness
trainer, married and a father of two daughters. Yes, that makes me a grandmother!!
Lucas has worked with me at Rocky Cola for over 10 years. He lends his calm, friendly nature
to an often chaotic business. I'm happy he is here helping me run the show. Lucas picks up the
slack for me when I get bombarded with phone calls and errands. He, like his brother, is also into
health and physical fitness - it's a good thing we serve fitness entrees here!
My sister, Antoinette, came on board in 1999 after working for a local bank for 13 years! She
has a professional attitude, but with a great sense of humor - customers love her! She is also
Rocky Cola's bookkeeper and my fellow cupcake baker!
My sister, MaryEllen, has been with us for 7 years. She is sweet and kind, and puts the
concept of family into this family diner. She is well-loved and has many 'regulars' who come
in just to see her!
My daughter-in-law, Sara, has been part of the Rocky Cola family for about 18 months, but
in my heart for over 7 years. Customers love her outgoing nature and her ability to remember
orders without writing anything down! She is a wonderful asset to the restaurant and a
wonderful mother to my two granddaughters!
