The morning ritual of breakfast mirrors the elegant cosmic dance of dawn, when the sun awakes to crack and scramble comets and then drink the Milky Way straight from the carton. Similarly rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Nick's 50's Diner in West Palm Beach.
Nick's 50's Diner’s chefs transport patrons back to a bygone era with homemade diner breakfasts and lunches plated amid Eisenhower-era memorabilia. An authentic 1955 Seeburg jukebox plays '50s classics and interviews with Sputnik while breakfast staples such as the greek omelet ($7.25) or bananas foster french toast ($6.99) drag race toward tables. Known for pushing plate boundaries, the Hangover Deluxe piles a half order of homemade biscuits and gravy high with cheddar cheese, bacon, fried chicken, and scrambled eggs, walling in flavor with a bulwark of savory potatoes ($8.95). For lunch, chefs roast their own turkeys, brew their own gravy, and use all of their own wishbone wishes to build a turkey-breast platter flanked by soup or salad, potatoes, and the vegetable of the day ($9.29). Ask a friendly waitress for the daily lunch specials ($5.95+), which include a cup of the ever-changing soup of the day.
Nick's 50's Diner
At the family-owned Nick's 50's Diner, you’ll find time-period specific memorabilia, including celebrity photographs and illustrated advertisements, as well as a 1955 Seeburg Juke Box. Red diner booths and checkerboard floors complete the scene. This is a spot where people can grow nostalgic for another time—or to simply enjoy the era’s delicious food. The diner serves classic burgers, sandwiches, and breakfast eats, and Nick and his cooks make everything by hand. They’ll go as far as roasting their own turkeys and beef, slicing them onto sandwiches and transforming the rest into delicious gravies. Finish with a treat from the soda jerk, perhaps an old-fashioned shake or an egg cream.
