Pat’s Original Diner (Trenton)

Pat’s Original Diner (Trenton)

Recently, I rounded out Mercer County by going to my last diner (as of now) in the County.  Even though Mercer County is one of the smaller counties, it is the first county I’ve completed.

I arrived at Pat’s Orginal Diner on a Sunday around brunch time, and it wasn’t overly crowded.  I was hungry and happy to get a table quickly.

Pat’s Orginal Diner Atmosphere: C
Pat’s Orginal Diner diner looks like a local favorite.  The outside is plenty of windows.  It’s reasonably big with plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.  The booths are cramped, and I felt like I was sharing my meal with everyone.  The inside could use an update and several of the booths had rips and tears in them.

Pat’s Orginal Diner Coffee: A
The coffee took a while to get to us, but once it did; it was one of the better coffees I’ve had.  The whipped cream was also homemade, which made a huge difference.

Pat’s Orginal Diner Food: B
Pat’s Original Diner menu has many different options for breakfast, to lunch, and dinner.  They don’t have a lot of healthy choices so if you’re looking for that, this might not be your stop.

I have been twice now, and the second time I decided to order the French toast and Taylor ham.  The French toast had cinnamon baked in which I appreciated.  It was light and fluffy.  The scrambled eggs and Taylor ham were both excellent.

Pat’s Orginal Diner Service: C
The waitress was nice, but she didn’t come around much.  I could have used a lot more water and refills.

Pat’s Orginal Diner Cost: $
For the coffee, French toast, eggs, and Taylor ham, the cost was $10.

Overall/Summary of Pat’s Orginal Diner:
In all, Pats Original Diner started rough, but it did get better.  The homemade whipped cream in the coffee boosted it up.
