Handsomely situated with its bright-red painted-brick exterior at the corner of George Street and Richmond Street East, the George Street Diner is a genuine original-character diner that's been part of our city's history and day-to-day fabric seemingly forever.
What is it about classic diners that seem to exude the 'comfort' in comfort food? There is a sense of communal dining here, with a counter lined with brightly coloured stools, as well as a row of comfy booths along the windows. The open kitchen emits the sounds and aromas of cooks busily preparing hearty and happy fare.
If you are looking for a new brunch spot, this one should be top of your list. One of the staples here is Farrelly’s Famous Irish Soda Bread, which is filling and flavourful. This diner also features organic, local ingredients that add to the high quality of their diner fare.
Fun fact. Did you know that the Shawn Mendes video “Life of the Party” was filmed at the George Street Diner?
We took our place along the counter where we had an ideal view of all the kitchen goings-on. Before long our delicious special was served - Huevos Rancheros replete with refritos, house-made chorizo sausage, fluffy scrambled eggs, fresh guacamole, spicy tomato and jalapeno salsa all served on a toasty grilled tortilla. Delish!
Spots like the George Street Diner have a special place in our hearts at Urbaneer. It's just one of the ways we connect and continue our appreciation for the history of this city which we so adore.
We hope, once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted, you'll stop in for a delicious bite and experience the great and truly authentic hospitality!
