Located in the heart of Shoreditch, ‘The Diner’ provides a taste of America without having the hassle of a 8 to 10 hour flight!
Whats on the Menu?
A lot! The Diner caters to every sort of craving, from my personal favourite, All day breakfast which, consists of fluffy Pancakes with maple syrup (of course), Vegan Benedict & if your super hungry the Lumberjack Breakfast which includes Eggs, pancakes, bacon, syrup and whipped honey butter. Also on the menu are classic Burgers, Hot Dogs and if your feeling healthy -Salad.
However, what really makes ‘The Diners’ menu stand out is the Blue Plates or what I interpret to be their authentic American dishes and Boy!they are DELICIOUS 😋. Tempting you with mouthwatering MAC & Cheese, Buttermilk Fried Chicken and St.Louis Baby Back Ribs .
To wash it down ‘The Diner’ provides a variety of drinks from your usual standard soft drinks, Beers, Hot drinks and Cocktails to Milkshakes and my personal favourite- Hardshakes! If you are a little baffled by this, hardshakes are basically Milkshakes for Adults, adding that much needed alcohol to a classic milkshake makes it irresistible!
- Blue berry Pancakes: I am a massive pancake critic simply because I love them so much and know what the perfect pancake should taste like (to me). ‘The Diner’ deliver this perfection with its fluffy texture, sweet balance and the ability to take me back to San Francisco where I first tried blubbery pancakes. All the pancake choices are amazing and if in limbo on what to choose staff are usually pretty happy to mix and match for you !
- Buttermilk Fried Chicken: Even writing about it makes me hungry! This plate of food is the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and I know many do not understand how chicken and waffles go together but people.. It just does! Waffles taste amazing, iHop lovers eat your heart out. Chicken is seasoned and juicy and when smothered in Bacon Gravy you have yourself a little piece of heaven. You can thank me later!
- The Kraken ( HardShake): Basically banana milkshake with so much more star power. I must admit it is a bit on the sweet side but the balance of the Kraken Rum makes it a easy shake to sip and Enjoy!
A great place for having a temporary but satisfying taste of America. Staff are very friendly and menu is reasonably priced
