'50s looking diner in Toronto?
Just wondering -- any diners you can think of which have kept that original '50s look, with the long counters, and red seats, and good wholesome fare?
The Patrician Grill on King St. E near Sherbourne fits that description. Cool retro sign, vinyl booths and stools, family run, decent cheap food. Homemade meatloaf on Fridays. Toronto.com says they even opened in the 50s...
219 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A1J9, CA
if you want to go the veggie route, try Sadie's Diner at Portland & Adelaide.
While not a traditional "mom & pop" type diner (the kind that has been int he same location for ages, with the same staff and same menu), Sadie's is kitch 50's all the way right down to the soundtrack that plays while you eat.
i highly recommend the huevos rancheros....I've tried the breakfast burrito and it was meh so now i stick to what i know is good. the portions are HUGE too.
they dont seem to have a website but the menu can be viewed here:
