Diners in Erie

Occuping the building at Lackawanna's central intersection Nelson's ridge perfectly captures the neighborhood’s charm. The eatery takes its name from nearby Our Lady of Victory Basilica's well-loved leader, Father Nelson Baker, and furthers the connection with menu names derived from religious icons. Chefs churn out classic diner fare such as burgers, hot sandwiches, and fried chicken for lunch and dinner, but the biggest crowd pleasers are their served-all-day hotcakes, stuffed with bananas and chocolate chips, blueberries, or diced apples and bacon. In true diner fashion, Nelson’s feeds hungry diners at a long counter dotted with bar stools, and floor-to-ceiling windows offer gorgeous views of its namesake basilica.

Fresh Start Diner has hallmarks of an American diner such as all-day breakfast starting as early as 7 a.m. Within these traditional parameters, however, the culinary team puts its own spin on the classic diner menu. Into a 14-inch pancake, they stuff vanilla ice cream and fruit or chocolate filling. Ham, crab cakes, corned-beef hash, or portobello mushrooms crown plates of eggs benedict. At 10:30 a.m. the diner introduces its lunch menu, which includes caesar salads with special house dressing and turkey melts. Fresh Start serves pancakes, omelets, salads, and sandwich entrees and bread including gluten-free products from Mrs. P?s Gluten Free Bakery.
