I just discovered Homewood Diner in the Homewood neighborhood and had a very enjoyable breakfast. As you can see from the photo, it isn't in a traditional diner building, but the walls display quite a few photos of old-fashioned diners. They also have an extensive collection of old radios, which is an attraction for a nerd like me.
I ended up with so much breakfast that I couldn't fit it into one photo. The waitress cautioned me to order only one pancake and she was right. Not only was my blueberry pancake huge but it was also delicious. The blueberries really popped.
My veggie omelette was excellent. The eggs had a marvelous creamy flavor; they had clearly been cooked slowly and carefully. Mushrooms add a welcome savory touch to a veggie omelette. Given the huge size of my pancake, I had only a taste of the grits but they were quite good, as was the multi-grain toast.
And has anyone seen this syrup before? It seems to be an Alabama/Georgia thing, given the name...
