Comfort is the name of the game at Save On Meats Diner. Comfort food, served in comfortable surroundings at comfortable prices make it a definite ‘must do’.
Although its been open for about six months I’d yet to have a chance to try it so when a friend recently suggested lunch I jumped at the chance. Even thought there was a list of 7 tables waiting ahead of us, the line moved very quickly and we were soon seated in one of the refurbished retro booths along the east side of the diner. A long sit-down counter takes up the west side of the room, where patrons can watch the staff create their drinks and prep their service.
A good length menu of brunch time favourites made it a bit difficult to choose. Oatmeal, steak & eggs, corned beef hash, stacks of pancakes, eggs benedict or scrabbles are all offered up and made like home. Even some unique creations feel warm and familiar like the breakfast poutine or kid’s menu breakfast burger.
I had such a hard time deciding that I opted to make up my own meal, which our friendly server very accommodatingly worked out for me. Three eggs, bacon and a grilled cheese sandwich on the side was served up quickly and heartily.
Save On Meats Diner is located next door to Save On Meats Butcher Shop, at 43 West Hastings Street in Vancouver, look for the famous neon sign. Open seven days per week from 7am – 10pm, follow them on twitter at @Saveonmeats
