In the physical world.

Crave Inn is a diner in the version of Springwood in A Nightmare on Elm Street (film series).

It serves breakfast, lunch, and diner.

It is on a corner at the intersection of two streets.

It is seen in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master and A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child.


The Dream Master

Alice Johnson and Debbie Stevens worked here. It was also where Kristen Parker and Alice's brother, Rick Johnson, and his friend, Dan Jordan, hung out. It was also here that Kristen and Rick broke the news to Alice informing her of the death of Roland Kincaid and Joey Crusel.

Later on in this diner, Alice and Daniel talked about the deaths of their friends and how she feels she's responsible since she inadvertently pulled them into her dreams. In the nightmare world version of this diner, she would encounter an older version of herself (which showed one of her fears; working in that diner forever) serving pizza with the souls of his victims in the form of meatballs. And it was also here they were to meet so they can go to meet Debbie. But thanks to Freddy Krueger's interference, they were too late to save her.

The Dream Child

Alice would arrive a few hours late, much to her co-worker's chagrin because Freddy detained her in a waking dream, where she was rescued by Amanda Krueger, Freddy's mother. Shortly after, she would witness the death of Daniel when she saw him being pulled into the well of souls within Freddy.
