Metro Diner

Metro Diner may not be the type of place where you’d expect contemporary culinary techniques, a commitment to creating dishes from scratch, an award winning presentation, unique recipes and imaginative twists on old classics, but it is. 

It’s that type of place because they cook with heart and for the love of food.

Since the original location building’s humble beginnings in 1938 and its revival as Metro Diner in 1992, Jacksonville’s favorite place for breakfast has been serving satisfied guests for nearly 25 years.

In 2000, master chef Mark Davoli and family took over and elevated the menu to include innovative new dishes created from local ingredients. Along with culinary creativity, the Davoli family brought more than 80 years of combined restaurant experience to Metro Diner.

To this day, Metro Diner has locations in 14 states, with 29 of those locations in Florida

Known for warm, welcoming service, familiar faces and award winning food, Metro Diner is a go to eatery for locals, visitors and those just passing through town. Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner in select locations, and they'd love to have you.

The San Francisco Benedict with two poached eggs, Canadian bacon, sliced avocado, and tomato and home fries with cheese, peppers and onions was pretty damn good.


The Bissell Breakfast at Metro Diner with two eggs over easy, bacon, an English muffin, hash browns well done and a short stack of pancakes.


The Short Stack of Pancakes that comes with the Bissell Breakfast… You can also substitute this for a Belgium Waffle.


Even though we ordered enough food to be stuffed, I had to get the Spicy Honey Chicken Biscuit at Metro Diner made with a fried chicken tender with spicy honey on a biscuit. Simple and Glorious.


We really enjoyed Metro Diner in Orlando… I thought it was pretty good food for a chain, and we will definitely be back to try some other items like Fried Chicken and Waffles..or how about a Beef Pot Pie?

Metro Diner is open on Monday to Thursday from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday they are open from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm, and Sunday they are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Keke's Breakfast Cafe

Winter Park, FL 32789

Keke’s Breakfast Cafe has always been a favorite of a lot of people I have spoke to over the years, but I never got around to trying them out until a few weeks ago. If you are not familiar with Keke’s they are a small chain of breakfast and lunch only restaurants that opens at 7:00 am and closes at 2:00 pm. Currently there are 13 locations with more soon to open throughout Central Florida.

Breakfast covers the usual line up of omelets, pancakes, waffles, french toast etc. Lunch includes selections of burgers, wraps, and a variety of sandwiches and paninis. All of the food at Keke’s is handmade, using quality ingredients and fresh fruits and vegetables that are delivered daily and served up in a clean environment with great service.

The food here can best be described as American comfort food with a gourmet twist. On my visit we did breakfast items only, and selected a few dishes. All of our food was excellent. It was crowded when we arrived around 11:00 and we were told there would be a wait of fifteen minutes, but we only waited about five minutes.

The Home Fries with Bacon and Cheddar Cheese were pretty awesome, and are really great for a hangover remedy. This comes in a large enough portion that if you just wanted to order this only, you would be satisfied.


The Southwest Omelet is filled with tomatoes, onion, jalapeño and pepper jack cheese, petal sauce and is served with salsa a side of home fries and your choice of bread. This was omelette was fluffy and tasty with a touch of spice.


I ordered the “Create Your Own Combo” with French toast, two eggs sunny side up and two strips of bacon. The French toast at Keke’s is not to be missed. I only had the basic regular version, and it was among the best French toast I have had. I hear that the stuffed versions are pretty spectacular as well.

Whatever part of town you are in, look up the nearest Keke’s Breakfast Cafe location the next time you are in the mood for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or whatever you want to call it. There is a reason they have won Orlando Weekly’s Best Of Orlando award for breakfast two times in three years.
