From their website” Named after our Triplets, Libby, Will & John, we opened our Diner on March 12, 2012. We hope to be a Not-too-Fancy neighborhood restaurant that offers a variety of simple food. We serve Breakfast all day, plus Salads, Sandwiches, Meatloaf, Pasta, Chicken and More. Come in and try it! Bring the kids and we’re sure that you’ll find something you love! ”
I’ve been there many times, exclusively for breakfast and brunch (same thing I guess, just depends on how late of a start I got that day) and have enjoyed their omelettes – made your way: choose your cheese, plus what else do you want inside? Mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, spinach, peppers, ham, bacon, and well you get the picture. Then add the thick cut crispy bacon, gluten free toast, occasionally their amazing corn bread instead, fresh fruit cup and of course hot coffee. They do have a crab omelette that is delightful! Or stick to the classics; the American favorite hamburger, as you want it, is always available to cure your hangriness! (Hangry = Hungry [from being] Angry)
They are always warm and welcoming at Trip’s Diner, with the waitstaff friendly and ready to serve. They are smart, using digital tables where once your order is confirmed, the waiter / waitress hits the “send” button and your order is immediately in the kitchen. This is super helpful as there is always a wait at Trip’s. As to lunch or dinner, I haven’t tried it yet, so we’ll leave that for you all to explore, though their menu (Here is their online menu (as of Dec 2015) offers: Pastas, Chicken, Meat and Fish, Beer and Wine, Burgers and Chicken, Specialty Sandwiches, Appetizers, Salads, Soup and Salad Combos and of course Desserts. Whoosh, you have plenty of choices so no worries there! And of course you can always just ADD BACON!! No matter what time of the day, Trip’s Diner, here on Dr. M. L. King Jr Street North, offers up that welcoming, friendly American style diner atmosphere we all know and love!
