Years ago, I would guess almost 20 years ago, there was a late night show on TV that has stuck in my brain ever since.
This show had a Twilight Zone vibe about it. It was set in a diner/restaurant where time stood still. I’m pretty sure there were multiple episodes but I only remember one.
In the opening scene a waitress is wiping down a table when a shot rings out outside. A man staggers in clutching his chest. He’s been shot and has only moments to live. Time has stopped in the diner so he tells his story and resolves the troubles in his life.
By the end of the show he knows he has to leave, the waitress tells him time will start again. He knows he will die. He walks out the door and the show ends.
Does that ring a bell for anyone? I’ve looked online but it’s hard to find information about an obscure show from so long ago.

Nightmare Cafe: episode 4 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoKpYd0U7nU
Not quite the same way I remember it (the diner was brighter, 50’s decor) but that’s it! Thanks for finding that.
How did you find it?
I used to watch it when it was on back in the 90’s, simply because it had “Freddy Krueger without make-up” in it 🙂 I didn’t recall the exact episode but the details about a 20 year old show about a “diner where time stood still” rang a bell.
Here’s the obligatory Wikipedia page on the series. Lots of interesting info on it there.
Reminds me of serial 6 of Sapphire And Steel
I remember that one. That series was one of the oddest I watched, ever!
