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 comfort food and drinks at Spoons Diner on Douglas Street.
Spoons Diner entices gourmands with a festive menu that runs the gamut of classic counter chow. Rise and shine as the sun's eager grin blinds your face and bite into a breakfast club ($9), a hearty sandwich bedecked with fried eggs, bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, and a side of hash browns. The build-your-own "ommy" option (starting at $7) is optimal for eggheads who crave an assortment of veggies alongside their cheeses and meats. Spoons' menu is sprawling and toasts both the savoury and sweet side of breakfast before swapping college pranks over a midday meal. The aptly entitled Rub My Tummy and Gimme a Nap sandwich ($11) stumps baby geniuses with a chicken breast worshipped by bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and Swiss cheese. Spoons Diner also dares to bookend meals with appetizing appetizers such as onion rings ($4) and scrumptious desserts including the apple-berry pie ($5).
