A diner's oversize booths and oversize pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-size props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of traditional diner fare at MarLiDa's Diner. This deal is not valid at MarLiDa's Deli & Cafe.
The kitchen magicians at MarLiDa's Diner conjure comfort-fare classics from breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. Pot roast ($8.95) teams with red potatoes and carrots to quell the first rumblings of stomach rebellions, and dinner helpings of meat loaf ($8.95) fill bellies with equal amounts of meat and nostalgia. More than 20 sandwich options swarm lunch hours, including the Haley's Comet ($6.95), which sends roast beef, provolone, and bacon-horseradish dressing rocketing across a pressed croissant. People who haven't hit snooze too many times on their roosters can breakfast on biscuits and gravy ($4.99), which douses two buttermilk breadballs in sausage gravy and charges two cooked-to-order eggs with escorting them tableward. A kids' menu ensures little mouths are fed with favorites including chicken fingers with fries and applesauce or cottage cheese ($2.99).
