Dinner x Lucy's Eastside Diner x Mount Pleasant

Late night milkshakes and dinner at Lucy's Eastside Diner on Main Street in Mount Pleasant (open 24 hours a day) on October 30 and November 3, 2010.

I made two visits to the new 24-hour diner in East Vancouver. After the grand opening Halloween bash at the Waldorf Hotel, my friends and I were hankering for some late night treats.

I remembered that the new diner on Main Street was open 24 hours a day and we decided to check it out at 11 o' clock at night. I had been looking for an excuse to drop by ever since Dennis Pang's incessant recommendations.

I had to come back for dinner before the Yelp party with new Vancouver Community Manager Cyndi Hunter and try their food. I had dinner with Colene and Jonathan Yapp of Food and Tell. I had milkshakes both times.  The Oreo flavor and it was very delicious. It definitely hit the spot. It had a great textures and taste like a real old fashioned ice cream shake. The chocolate was just okay.

The first time around, I left really wanting to come back to Lucy's for food. I especially wanted to try the cinnamon French toast.

I got around to trying the cinnamon French toast and I thought it was pretty solid. It was big and filling but lacked a certain special spark to make it really stand out. Regardless, it certainly did the trick. I was annoyed that my waitress forgot my order of side sausage.

Jonathan ordered the basic single cheeseburger with mushrooms which he said was quite good. He also was a little annoyed at the waitress (who didn't write down our orders), because he specially asked for no mayo and got a nice slab of it on his burger.

Colene lamented her boring choice of breakfast for dinner and left satisfied with her meal. It certainly looked the part of a classic breakfast special.

The warm colour tones and kitschy decorations with old fashioned setup give off a great vibe. I bet it would feel even better in the middle of the night.

I love diners like Acme Cafe and The Templeton. I really dig the small, simple vibe of the place with two seat booths and basic, retro decor.

The late night poutine was scrumptious looking and quite appetizing. I think Lucy's is a very charming place with a cool atmosphere and warm, comfortable food. It is nothing spectacular but I like the grub because of it. It's basic food done well at very reasonable prices.
