4 South High St., Canal Winchester, 43110
It looks like a classic, small-town diner. It’s been there a long time, though not with the same owners. I’ve seen other people eating there every time I’ve been there over the years. It was quite busy this Saturday morning. Must be because there’s not a lot of choice in Canal Winchester.
The coffee tasted like hot water. If it weren’t for the fact I could see it was black, I would have thought it was plain water. By the time I got to the bottom of the cup — the server never refilled it the whole time I was there – I was aware of thinking about places to go get a cup of coffee after breakfast.
They’ve got the standard eggs, bacon, gravy, pancakes, etc., etc. blah, blah, blah.
I had the menu item they call the Turntable: 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, home fries and for meat I chose corned beef hash. The waitress said she was bringing “syrup and butter,” but I don’t believe it was butter – yuck. The pancakes tasted OK. But what is it with tough pancakes? Are you supposed to need a knife to eat pancakes? The home fries looked good, with a beautiful crispy crust, but they were bland and didn’t taste like much of anything. The corned been hash was lousy. Really, the hash I had a couple of weeks ago, that I compared to canned dog food, was better than this.
My total was $10 — this is not a good value.
After breakfast I did go across the street to Harvest Moon and got a good cup of coffee. They also had some good-looking breakfast sandwiches; next time I eat breakfast in this neighborhood I’ll get one.
