If you find yourself commuting to downtown or visiting the Kauffman Center often, chances are the vintage Denny’s at Truman and Broadway has become a landmark.

But like many other landmarks Kansas City has been accustomed to seeing, days are numbered for the 1600 Broadway Denny’s location.

Last Friday, a demolition permit was issued for the 50-year-old building. A pre-demolition inspection is scheduled for today for the 3,392-square-foot diner built in 1971.

Several Reddit users are not upset about Denny’s demise, however, and many recommended nearby Town Topic for a late-night meal.
