    The American Diner tour

    OK, from another discussion, I started looking around the web.
    I found this link,
    Top 10 American Diners in London | Bookatable Blog

    A list of American Diner style restaurants in London.
    Apparently, American Diner is catching on in the UK.
    So I am hoping to make a tour of American-style Diners in the near future.

    If anyone wants to try a few, and report back with their impressions of some of these places, it might prove to be interesting.

    Ive seen a couple of Eds Diners but not eaten there.

    I stopped off at an American style diner on the A303 going west last summer on the way to Devon. Breakfast was a disappointment but I wouldnt dismiss a place on a first visit if a friend had recommended it

    We had a Downdown Diner in town here, I framed a picture of the Statue of Liberty that hung on the wall.
    It used to be a favourite due to the size of the servings, I have been there many times.
    Looking for a link to it, I have discovered it's shut down, I am surprised.

    Doesn't sound too promising if they messed up breakfast.

    When I was in L.A., the woman I was staying with decided that she was going to take me out for a meal at Flamers (which I understand is a chain of diners). I have to admit, though, I found it hilarious that when we arrived the fire crews had just finished damping down the embers from where it had been entirely gutted.

    Very appropriately named.

    Absolutely. A diner that can't do Breakfast isn't much of a diner.

    But then, the Brits have some interesting ideas of what breakfast entails.

    I didn't mind the broiled Tomato, but the Black Sausage and Baked Beans kinda put me off abit.
    And most Brits don't know how to cook bacon.

    We don't do broiled.
    And I have it on good authority, Americans don't do bacon.
    But give me a week and I shall have first hand information.
