“If you feed them they will come.” As well as, “First feed your soul.” These are some of the wooden signs adorning the walls of Beach Diner in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. And what an absolutely adorable little diner it truly is.
Beach Diner is a local small business in the greater Jacksonville area. In my opinion the diner is a wonderful mix of greasy spoon, cafe, and a beachy bistro too. There are five locations in various local Beaches communities. I’ve been to three of them so far - and my goal is to try all five within the near future. The five diners are located in Atlantic Beach, San Marco, Fernandina Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, and Mandarin.
Each Beach Diner that I’ve been (Atlantic Beach, San Marco - and now for today’s review - Ponte Vedra Beach) has a fun, eclectic, and of course, beachy vibe.
The diners are set up offering patrons various styles of seating. Traditional counter style diner service is at the front of the diner in Ponte Vedra Beach. Booths and tables are also throughout, including a lovely, shade-covered patio outside, just off its location on A1A, where dogs are also welcome (bonus!).
White beadboard covers the walls of the diner, with coastal decor and funky, fun, “beachy” paintings adorned on the walls.
I ordered the two egg meal. Served with two scrambled eggs, bacon, and choice of toast - I chose the multi-grain wheat toast, served with butter already on it. The meal also comes with your choice of style of hash browns. So whatever potato you want that day, you can get it.
I highly recommend always ordering their bacon, even a side order if you happen to be ordering something else on the menu. Full of delicious savory flavor and never overcooked, my husband and I can’t replicate it at home if we continually tried.
Service is ALWAYS friendly. A very warm and welcoming environment, indeed. In my opinion, Beach Diner is one of those very special, and very Southern diners - overflowing with quintessential Southern Hospitality.
Some folks stay to have leisurely and slow morning meal and linger over their coffee, while watching the televisions situated above the counter. Jaguars mostly guaranteed to be the channel of choice on the air. Newspapers and laptops, families, and couples. A quick meal or slow, it’s a nice, relaxing outing any time you come for a visit.
Upon leaving, as a bonus on the way out the door, I was able to say hello to a very excited dog sitting politely on the patio. The owner said her dog loves coming to the diner each week to be greeted by all the people coming in and out.
Beach Diner is simply a lovely little local spot in the Beaches community. And next time you’re looking for a breakfast that you don’t have to cook - bacon you don’t have to fry yourself, eggs you don’t have to scramble yourself, and hash browns you don’t have to hash yourselves, get on over to Beach Diner - where you will be reminded to first feed your soul - with some real darn good food. Staff and servers wearing Beach Diner tees or their favorite Jaguars apparel are ready to serve a wonderfully delicious meal to you. ~
