$10 for $20 Worth of Classic Diner Cuisine
The menu includes buttermilk pancakes with two eggs ($7.95), hot meatloaf sandwiches with gravy ($12.95), and a Greek wrap with chicken, feta cheese, and housemade vinaigrette ($9.95).
Nothing about Orion Diner makes customers feel rushed. The kitchen stays open 24 hours a day, which ensures that passersby always have the opportunity to stop and recharge with a cup of Italian Segafredo Zanetti coffee or melted-down AAA batteries for robot customers. Even the menu seems to encourage perusal and deliberation, occupying more than a dozen pages with rib-sticking comfort food that ranges from omelets and Angus hamburgers to baked ziti parmigiana and gyros.
Orion Diner's decor places it a notch above greasy spoon, but the ambiance is undeniably cozy. Brick columns appear along the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, complementing the warm earth tones of the dark tan booths and their pendant-lamp lighting. The recessed ceiling is designed to look like a shattered roof, which encourages diners to look up and gaze through the faux skylight at clouds all of 12 feet off the floor—NASA would have saved billions of dollars by launching spacecraft from this spot.
Love love love this diner. It's so sparkly and new, and the customer service is EXCELLENT!Rachel F., Yelp, 4/26/12
