Restaurant: Unconventional Diner

Debbie and I went to Unconventional diner with Simma and Ron on a Sunday morning.

The restaurant opens at 9:00 a.m. the menu is described as Brunch until 3:45 p.m.

Simma ordered Avocado Toast — Rustic Bread, Deviled Egg Salad, Toasted Pepitas, Micro Greens.

Ron ordered S’Eggs Sandwich – Scrambled Egg, Bacon, Cheez, Scallion, Sexy Sauce, Sesame Seed Bun, Fries.

Debbie ordered Corned-Beef Hash – Potato, Roasted Onion, Celery, Black Pepper Gravy, Two Sunny Eggs.

Mike ordered French Toast – Roasted Apple, Granola, Vanilla Ice Cream, Bacon.

I requested an espresso but was told by our server that the restaurant does not offer espresso.

Service is quick. The whole operation is quite efficient but a little noisy.

When fully occupied the restaurant seats up to 320 people.

The gender-neutral restroom (there may be a second room) is about 8 feet square. The floor is of gray, rough cement. The walls come to about shoulder height and are covered with a series of white ceramic rectangular tiles. Above the tiles the wall is painted white. On the white walls are a series of painted lines at various angles.

In one corner that is a white ceramic floor-based commode with metal handles within range of a person using the commode. Directly across from the commode is a baby changing table.

Directly across from the commode is also a white square hanging washbasin topped by a large mirror. To the right is a waste receptacle. The door to the space is bright blue.
