City Diner

Last Sunday we got up before the sun came up over the James River to explore some of the more interesting parts of the Mayo Bridge area. Interesting jaunt, but cold. I promised hubby to take him wherever he wanted for breakfast.

As we cruised up Broad Street we passed City Diner and promptly made a u-turn. I appreciate a diner with the fire department sitting in one corner, the loner drinking coffee and reading the paper, families sitting down to  a hearty meal, and the waitstaff greeting the knowns and unknowns with a steaming pot of coffee. We enjoyed a couple of artery-clogging platters: Bertha G: 3 scrambled eggs with ground beef, onions, and garlic with home fries and toast; and Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs: the steak was smothered in sausage gravy, the eggs - over easy, with home fries and toast.

Such down-home decadence.

Here are some pics from our early morning photo safari, too.
