The Plantation Diner (Plantation)
***** The Plantation Diner, 6903 West Broward Boulevard, Plantation, Florida 33317, (954) 791-2985.
Earlier today, I told you guys about a real-good “mom & pop” neighborhood diner…Over Easy Cafe located in Oakland Park—here’s another real-good one, The Plantation Diner in Plantation (that figures).
Look-I could go into detail, but suffice it to say, The Platation Diner is a terrific place for breakfast/lunch. When you really think about it, breakfast here in South Florida is pretty much dominated by the fast food chains and bagel-delis. I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer eating a western omelette or some pancakes with a hot coffee in a neighborhood diner than getting food at the two “aforesaid” type venues. Call me crazy, sentimental, but these mom & pop joints give me a Mayberry vibe…Now, I could go into “Greek” diners vs. “mom & pop” diners—for sure, there are differences and then again some same-ness. Suffice it to say, I’ll bet that you guys know exactly what a neighborhood diner smells and looks like.
The Plantation Diner has a menu loaded with breakfast stuff, salads, sandwiches, burgers, desserts. You can check menu/prices at www.dinerplantationfl.com.
Over the years, I’ve probably had breakfast/lunch at The Plantation Diner something like 4-5 times. Just so you know, old Jeff Eats is a creature of habit when it comes to diners—I love western omelettes, home fries, french toast, bacon cheeseburgers made on a grill, chicken salad with extra mayo on toasted rye, apple pie, Coca Cola. I’ve had all of the “mentioned” at The Plantation Diner and I am happy to report that everything was A-OK. I also love to kibbutz waitresses and owners–and my latest breakfast (about 1 hour ago) was a kibbutz -fest.
The Plantation Diner is open Monday-Saturday 6am-3pm, Sunday 6:30am-2pm.
