Time travel is satisfying as long as there’s either food or a coronation at the other end. Let your taste buds roam with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of classic diner fare and drinks at Melanie Pringles in Whitby.
The fully homemade menu at Melanie Pringles fills bellies with diner favourites in a bright dining room with touches that hark back to the '50s and '60s. Burgers ($8.99+) and wraps ($10.99+) fill essential stomach spaces, and fall-off-the-bone smokehouse ribs ($12.99 for a half rack, $18.99 for a full rack) make fingers regret not having their own mouths. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., enrich the midday desert with multifarious lunch options, such as the barbecue meatloaf sandwich ($9.99) or chicken souvlaki skewer ($8.99). Sunday brunch, served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., contrasts sweet options such as stuffed french toast ($7.99) with savouries that include the breakfast pizza with cheddar mashed potatoes, bacon, veggies, and a fried egg ($8.99). Shakes, and ice-cream drinks ply thirsts earned from energetic chewing or from watching the coolest guy in school struggle to work his tabletop jukebox with the tap of a fist.
Guests of all ages find enjoyment in the restaurant's children’s games and a billiard-and-game room. The full menu is served to night owls and vampire regulars until 1 a.m.
