An out-of-the-way in diner the middle of town
Blooming in the heart of the Downtown East Side is Flowers Coffee Shop. While the surrounding neighbourhood has fallen on hard times recently, this little dining establishment is well worth the visit if you’re looking for a basic tasty meal at very low price.
Breakfasts at Flowers Coffee Shop features all the favourites you’d expect at a classic diner. Served all day, they include heaps of pancakes, and plates laden with bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns and toast. Omelettes, with a variety of added ingredients such as cheese, ham, bacon and mushroom, are also available. The coffee and tea flow freely since the staff at Flowers is attentive with refills.
More than just burger basics
The burgers at Flowers Coffee Shop are said to be every bit as tasty as those at expensive upscale burger outlets. Flowers offers a simple but classic selection that includes cheeseburgers, bacon-cheese burgers, and chicken burgers, all accompanied by crispy hand-cut fries. Hot sandwiches such as grilled cheese, BLTs and roast beef are also on the menu, along with steak dinners, pork chops and a hefty plate of liver and onions. Visitors can seat themselves at booths within easy view of the kitchen’s spotless grill. Take-out is also available.
