The Diner



  • Best Breakfasts ( 2016 )


It’s almost impossible to drive past this ’50s retro diner in Farmers Branch without stopping. The hand-painted sign beckons you to come in for breakfast served in the comfort of refrigerated air. The coffee is brewed and ready to pour by 6 am, and early risers wave to each other as they choose a table. Owners Tina and Peter Paylim, originally from Paris, moved nearby and discovered a passion for serving old-fashioned comfort food. They do a fine job with migas. Eggs scrambled with generous bites of tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, potatoes, and tortilla strips are wrapped in tortillas. If the Belgian waffle smothered in orange pecan butter doesn’t fill you up, add a griddled pork chop on the side.
