The Diner: Meatpacking District (Brunch)

It’s kinda crazy that in a city filled with thousands upon thousands of restaurants, many of which proudly serve a weekend brunch, anyone could ever have trouble finding a good brunch spot. However, that’s the problem we faced on Sunday morning when deciding where to eat. We couldn’t think of anywhere new to go & we weren’t in the mood to head back to our local favorites. We started walking around hoping that the answer would come to us.

A short walk from Jess’ apt, it’s amazing that we had never eaten at The Diner before. It’s in the heart of the Meatpacking District, has great indoor & outdoor seating options (great for people-watching), and a casual vibe with flat screen TVs & magazine racks lining the walls.

I’ll get the negative out of the way… $3.50 for an iced coffee & NO free refills?!?!? Starbucks is more reasonable.

OK, now on to the positive (the rest of the meal):

We each went healthy and ordered the egg white omelet with broccoli, mushrooms, & red peppers. We added some cheese & split a side of turkey bacon. Throw in a plate filled with a small salad, home fries, & toast and you have yourself a healthy & hearty breakfast. Nothing too fancy, but it hit the spot nonetheless.
We both enjoyed our time here and will be coming back for the banana chocolate chip pancakes (when we don’t feel like being healthy). Plus, our mouths were watering at the various burger options on the menu (beef, chicken, veggie, turkey & more – all for $10.95). Check out the menu & more at http://www.thedinernyc.com/
