As you read the reviews of the Avalon diner, you’ll see reviews that are all over the map. Some like it a lot, some find it just average, some didn’t enjoy themselves.
Here’s the thing. They’re probably all telling you the truth. Whether you like the Avalon diner or not depends a lot on what you’re looking for.
The first thing to know about the Avalon diner is that this is not some foodie hideout. You’ll recognize every single item on the menu. This is not one of those restaurants where they pair greens with goat brains tartare and charge you $20 for the privilege. The Avalon has stuff like pancakes, a burger, some hash browns, or a milk shake. Comfort food largely.
I’m pretty sure their food isn’t locally sourced, or free range, or anything like that. If that sort of thing is important to you, the Heights or Montrose is your destination. Or, you know, San Francisco.
But lots of what they serve at Avalon really, really, really hits the spot. You choose the right thing and you get diner-grilled-goodness. My wife and I go a lot. We’re particular fans of their breakfast omelettes (which you can get any time of day). Paired with hash browns, and fresh-made biscuits, you’re in breakfast heaven.
It’s a friendly place too. You’ll occasionally see somebody in there with a tie, but mostly it’s jeans, sweatpants, and shorts. You can bring your kids or your Mom.
My wife and I go to the Avalon for breakfast at least once a week or so. I can’t say we’ve ever been for lunch or dinner so you’re on your own there. But if you’re looking for a decent American-style breakfast hot off the grill, the Avalon Diner is your place.
