Breakfast for dinner is a popular meal theme, but The Diner takes the concept one step further: you can have breakfast in the morning, the evening, or even after the bars close. That’s because the 24/7 eatery isn't tethered to the clock, instead offering its full menu of diner staples whether it's 2 a.m. or 7 p.m. Those looking for breakfast can tuck into the signature Diner Royale, which features two eggs, a choice of meat, challah french toast, and home fries or grits. Besides the familiar brunch standards, patrons can sample some innovative options such as bread-pudding french toast and the Croque and Dagger—two over-easy eggs on sourdough bread topped with bacon, béchamel, and gooey melted gruyère. The rest of the menu is filled with comfort foods of all types, from fried green tomatoes to bacon-wrapped meatloaf with whipped potatoes and creamed corn. Like a midterm exam at clown college, no meal is complete without a taste of one of the house’s fresh pies, which come in flavors such as coconut custard, sour cherry, and sweet potato. Some of the delectables even make it into the bar's creations, such as the Apple Bottom milk shake—made with Sailor Jerry rum, vanilla ice cream, and apple pie. Bartenders also blend up bloody marys, cocktails made with cognac and chamomile-lavender tea, and old-fashioneds.
