The Plantation Diner (Plantation)

Posted on March 16th, 2012 · American Breakfast 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

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.

    Jeff not exactly sure where to place this comment
    Was in the Festivel Flea Market this afternoon. Just happened to be walking by a stand called New England Coffee Shop. One of the workers was standing in the back of the stand mixing something in a bowl with no gloves on his two hands . While mixing he was tasting the food and had others tasting by putting some of the food in one hand and having them sample from his hand. Then the hand went back into the bowl to keep mixing.
    Stay away. Disgusting.
