As its up-front moniker suggests, this chain re-imagines the classic American diner of a million movie scenes through a London lens. Jocks & nerds are notable by their absence; in the Diner’s vinyl booths, you’ll find only cool cats. The menu is a trawl through roadside classics such as meat loaf & mash or mac & cheese, alongside many variations on the burger & fries theme. All six varieties of fries are particularly enticing – from the ‘wet’ version with gravy to the ultra-calorific chilli cheese numbers. Breakfasts come in big US portions – try stacks of pancakes, huevos rancheros or the ‘hungry man’ blow out with bottomless coffee. The Diner recreates the archetypal experience lovingly, apart from the service: the occasional ‘have a nice day’ would go a long way.
