Local Eats: Peter’s Diner

This was from last weekend.  We often stop at this diner on the way home from Philadelphia because it is along the back way home.  We usually stop in there pretty late then but this time we decided to meet a friend for breakfast on Saturday on our way to Ikea (in Philadelphia).  Its been pretty good every time I’ve gone and the service is always okay.  Not great but not bad.  They also give you tons of food it seems so I guess its a good price!
Anyway, it started off bad right away.  I wasn’t in the mood to argue and while ordering my breakfast, I asked about grapefruit juice and she said “cranberry?”  and I just blew it off.  That annoys Rob because I didn’t argue but I was happy with either and wasn’t in the mood to correct this waitress (she seemed like she didn’t want to be bothered by doing her job that day).  Then Rob tried to order the pancake special but asked to get a short stack instead.  She argued with him and rang him up with the short stack plus a coffee and a side of bacon which was way more expensive than the special (and he didn’t get OJ).  Overall, not happy with the service!  This was just one waitress so I won’t say the whole place is terrible.  This waitress was just awful.
My food was pretty good.  I just got scrambled eggs with homefries, toast, and bacon. 
Just normal breakfast!  I think everyone was happy with their order so that is a plus!  And I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing about the diner but they have a HUGE dessert display.

When we stop in late night, we sit at the counter a lot there.  I’ve never actually gotten any of the desserts!  They all look delicious but they are all gigantic servings too so I know I can’t eat it unless I split it with someone.  Overall, we were annoyed with the waitress but fine with the food.  Nothing amazing here really.  The place is always packed.  We’ve actually had to wait for a table before.  The atmosphere there is pretty nice.  If you are driving by and just want to grad some basic diner food, then this place is fine but I wouldn’t go out of your way.  Good late night eats!

  1. That's funny… Shannon HATES when I "argue" with the waitress… Even to ask questions about the bill or anything!
