Choppers Diner (CLOSED)

UPDATE: Sadly they are now closed.
Printed on their menu: “We don’t do fast food, we do good food.” And they’re telling it like it is, folks. When we arrived there was only one server on the floor, however, shortly thereafter, the reinforcements arrived, and then the service was smooth. The staff are down-to-earth and in conjunction with the biker-chic decor create an easygoing, convivial atmosphere. The crowd is mixed – older gentlemen in suits, babies in diapers, and everything in between. The commonality is that we were all seeking an authentic breakfast experience.

Choppers fulfilled my culinary cravings for a diner breakfast. And at such a pleasing price. My English Breakfast consisted of 2 eggs, 3 sausages, 2 toast, beans, grilled tomatoes and potato hash, all for $6.95! My partner went for the full-on Biker Breakfast – 3 eggs, 3 toast, 3 bacon, 3 sausages, potato hash and a flip cake – weighing in as the most expensive item on the menu at $10.25.

The meals tasted home cooked (by someone who knows how to cook) and the coffee was strong. Nicely done, if you ask me.

3298 East 1st Avenue (at Rupert Street)
Breakfast hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
