In the middle of nowhere, in the heart of a village called Johnson, the village diner is a house occupying the corner of a street. It’s where radio plays in the background, where the clientele lives around and seems to be often visiting and where the smell of food will be haunting your clothes all day. Diner food at its finest, the American way.


A waitress runs around taking orders while old people were continuing on walking in. Pancakes, waffles, sandwiches, fries and fosters... even bough I already had breakfast twice, I was excited to try their food. There is something about his place, and despite the smell and dirtiness, I felt that the food would be good.

With a smile on her face, the waitress took the order: “you are hungry today!” I don’t know how to explain it: Curly’s diner was clean, a family restaurant and I felt that it would be bad. Skylark was dramatic despite its high grades, a clean diner on a busy highway. And now this one, the village diner, dirty all the way and smelling fried oil... I felt it! 


Enjoying looking at people eating, watching the chefs grill and cook on a calm Tuesday morning, I waited to be served. On the wall, you can read about the customers favorite sandwiches and order them. Alex and Sophia’s ultimate Greek, Matt’s Favorite sandwich and the homemade corned beef. Coffee is refilled to everyone!


The place was packed! A waiting line was being formed, and the chefs were trying hard to finish orders: this place feels nice!

Exactly like I felt it; fantastic food! Looking awesome, the plates make your mouth water. The eggs and bacon cheese muffin is superb. The pancakes are so good, so moist Nans tender with an enjoyable fluffiness, served with blueberries and whipped cream. I ordered them with bananas and blueberries combined; an excellent balance. The waffle is out of this world, so fatty, so heavy and I loved it! Waffle with ice cream and a load of sweet maple syrup.


Voila! This place says it all. It’s just about the amount of passion poured in every plate. Bravo guys: I’m not sure if I’ll find this place again, but I’m happy to have passed by.
