With vibrant pink and yellow picnic tables and throwback white signage, Margate Dairy Bar & Burger is pure nostalgia. And we’re not talking about the begging your parents for Home Alone 2 at Blockbuster or printing out Mapquest directions kind of nostalgia, we mean they’ve been open since 1952 when gas was $0.27 a gallon and every day was like the first episode of WandaVision on a loop (minus the superpowers). With each bite of their juicy grilled cheeseburger or sweet spoonful of their classic banana split, you’ll see why the 69-year-old establishment gets most of the whipped cream-topped business in town.
