The Diner is a cozy, well... diner, tucked away in Adam's Morgan. My friend Stephanie and I found ourselves starving, slightly hungover, and wandering through the neighborhood one fine Saturday morning (let's be honest it was noon). As we walked past we noticed the piles of pancakes on other patrons plates and were immediately sold.
Whenever I go to brunch I always want something sweet and something savory. I can't imagine just eating a plate full of french toast or bacon, but I always want a bite of each. However, it's too much for one person to get a stack of pancakes and an omelet and a pile of bacon. I'm always left deciding between them or convincing Gman he wants pancakes so I can have a bite.
At The Diner you could order the breakfast special which included two eggs any style, bacon, sausage or ham, homefries or grits, pancakes or french toast, and white, wheat or rye toast AND coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. All of that can be yours for $13! I ordered the pancakes, eggs over medium, bacon, and homefries. I nearly cleaned my plate and felt like a champion. Not only that, but I didn't have to convince anyone to get the pancakes, I got a little of each. It was glorious.
