The fact that every booth (and they are all booths) had French's mustard made Bec very happy.
The diner serves breakfast until 4pm and offers a variety of egg dishes, pancakes and a 'Mexican' breakfast. On Bec and Sean's visit, Sean had a bacon cheeseburger with a side of guacamole for £6.40 (the guacamole was 50p extra) and cheese fries - the cheese was shredded and melted into a big, fatty glump which made all the fries stick together. This is Proper and a Good Thing. Bec had a spicy beanburger for £5.50 - which, unlike many 'spicy' beanburgers was actually spicy - and served with a giant slice of tomato and rocket. Onion rings were super fat and very crispy and cost £3.
Bec also had a pistachio milkshake for £4 which was utterly gorgeous and a very generous amount.
Mushroom-fearing vegetarians be warned: the only other veggie options are a taco or burrito, the filling of which is pre-mixed and contains the dreaded fungi.
Note the prices on the website (as of March 2008) are slightly cheaper than what we paid.
