A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at City Diner.
City Diner's menu brims with oodles of American cuisine and partners with a classic diner setting, with bar stools, cushioned booths, and a profusion of natural light. The Neptune omelet orbits the tongue with bay shrimp, avocado, and hollandaise ($11.95), and the pan-roasted pork chops rest under a canopy of caramelized onions and apple butter ($14.95).
Layered-cuisine tendencies can be sustained with 1 of 17 sandwiches, such as the Monte Cristo, whimsically built with ham, turkey, swiss and cheddar cheese, egg batter, and strawberry jam ($9.95). City Diner also concocts eight ice-cream-based desserts, including a brownie sundae ($6.95) and a black cow ($4.95).
Twenty-four Yelpers give City Diner a three-star average. Though reviews are mixed about the service, they praise the comfort food and décor.
