I like diners. I like diner food. I especially like that diner’s let me order an omelette, with a baked potato and coleslaw as sides, for dinner. (I like “breakfast foods” in the evening; go figure.)
Places we somewhat frequent:
Twohey’s in Alhambra (http://twoheys.com/) - usually solid service and decent food. I’m a sucker for their onion rings (but only when they’re fresh from the fryer!) and the lightly curried clam chowder. The small hot fudge sundae, with the bittersweet chocolate fudge, is pretty over the top. http://twoheys.com/
Foxy’s in Glendale:
Just started exploring their menu; hard to determine where the strengths are, but I rather like what we’ve tried. Service is great, decor is interesting, and the clientele fascinating. (WARNING: There’s a horrible music autoplay when you get to the site, so have your speakers muted!) http://foxysglendale.com/
Yeah, I know it’s a chain. And not a great one. But it’s decent. Service is consistent (at least at the one in east Pasadena on Colorado at Michillinda). Have yet to find a dessert there I really like, but the veggie omelettes are okay.
Have yet to try Du-Par’s on Lake in Pasadena. Unhappy with Shaker’s in South Pasadena on Fair Oaks (food and service).
What we’re looking for:
- Decent service
- Breakfast food for dinner
- Some vegetarian-friendly options
So…where should we be venturing to?
