I think she would like a name without the words cafe/resturant/diner in it. The food is British:American. It has a youngish demographic. The road name is pretty dull. I have no imagination with things like this.
Any suggestions?

New York , London)

NYLON is a brilliant name Hoppinggreen!

Is it modern looking or sort of 50's style decor? I love the old fashioned diners that look like they're from Grease or Happy Days. Let us know and I'll try and think of a name - there is a Diner going towards London called "Starvin' Marvin's" which I have never forgotten.

Well, I tend to steer clear of anything that sounds too 'themed' if you know what I mean? Love the idea of a diner, but not if it was themed to every last details, like rollerskating waitresses with pointy boobs and coke floats on a tray.

As for the name, would your sister's first or surname work as these can sound great with the right name. Or maybe something around an American city, or an iconic landmark? Having said that, Route 66 or Liberty instantly makes me think of a 1980s nightclub, so maybe avoid them.

How about Stateside? Or take a word that makes you think of America, like Hamptons? Or if it's fusion of British and American, how about Transatlantic? Or doing something numerically like work out the shortest time difference or the mileage between UK and USA.

Ooh, or Little Apple. Or New England? Oooh, I like that one.

Hmmm, I've just spent 10 mins doing this instead of working on stuff for a client urgently. Oooops. For what it's worth I like New England (blend of the two without sounding naff) and Hamptons (has a USA feel but short and classic).

Good luck!

Thank you comms I can literally hear your brain whirring grin I really like New England as well. Much as I love a themed diner, I think she's focusing on a modern transaslantic twist.

Please, please, please DO NOT call it Hamptons if it is anywhere near London. It is cockney rhyming slang and a rude one at that.

Yes it is on London borders- and I'm an Essex girl but had to google that. Think on reflection we might avoid that name then.

Why not look at what other cafe/restaurants are calling theirs. Which ones are catchy? I thought of this ---- but I should be studying….

Am not sure if you serve drinks though?

Take the B from British and the A from American and R from Restaurant and you have: THE BAR - The British American Restaurant.

good idea = a symbol.

NaturalBlondeYeahRight was thinking back to my earlier post - about The BAR, you could call it BAR 66. Use route 66 in your advertising stuff.
