Local Loves: City Diner

June 27, 2014

It's challenging for me to stick to a routine. I'm always looking for new opportunities, new things to love and new experiences. Randall and I can hardly go to the same restaurant twice, because we're always wondering what else is out there that we've never tried before. Because of that, we're building a wide variety of amazing local restaurants to recommend to people. Today, I'm telling you about one of our all time favorites - City Diner



This gem is tucked on a busy street in the city - and you may almost miss it if you aren't looking closely. It's tiny inside, filled with retro decor and the most fun atmosphere! I loved the feel of this place. It felt like we could become regulars and come here every day for a slice of pie and some coffee.

Isn't it perfect inside? I felt like I was eating lunch with the Brady Bunch. Let's be honest, who didn't dream about being one of the Brady kids. Oh wait, that was just me? Let's move on... 



Each table had its own lava lamp. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I was in heaven. This prompted a discussion between Randall and I about the lava lamps that we each had growing up. I was tempted to take this one home with us, but luckily for my husband it wasn't for sale.



Really guys, I can't rave enough about this place. Even their website is beautiful! And I loved reading more about the history of the diner. The location we visited is one of two in the city. Each of the diners have a unique feel, so I'm excited to take a trip over to their other location!



Now, you may be asking yourself - what does a vegetarian eat at a diner? Why would this be appealing if you're not getting a burger? Well, Randall tried the burger and assured me that it was fantastic, for all those who were curious. And I ordered a roasted vegetable sandwich that was so delicious, I couldn't wait to tell you about it.



Although we didn't have a chance to sample it this visit, their breakfast looks amazing. I'll be back to try some pancakes!
