Miss Portland Diner (Portland, Me)

On the drive to Maine, we decided to stop in Portland for lunch. A google search yielded the Miss Portland Diner in Portland.

Miss Portland Diner Atmosphere: A
When we arrived at the Miss Portland Diner for lunch, it was packed!  This Miss Portland Diner is located in a dining car in the city of Portland. It’s a classic diner and everything you expect. You can sit in the dining room and dining car, or outdoors.

Anyway, arriving when it was packed is a good sign. Packed means, good right?  It was about a 15-minute wait which wasn’t a big deal.

Miss Portland Diner Coffee: A
The coffee at the Miss Portland Diner was brewed hot and fresh.  I could have used a few more refills, but they were busy. The diner mug itself was cute.  It was a bright yellow, logo mug.  It was so cute; I ended up buying one.

Miss Portland Diner Food: A
The Miss Portland Diner menu is open for breakfast and lunch, so they serve breakfast and lunch.  There aren’t any dinner specialties, but there are the typical breakfast options in a diner.  They serve plenty of comfort food options.

A few of the Miss Portland Diner menu items that stood out:

  • Fried haddock
  • Irish Benedict
  • Open-faced sandwiches
  • Pot Roast with potato chips. sweet potato or home fries
  • Corned Beef
  • Whoopie Pie

Ultimately, I decided to order French toast and eggs.  I guess I’ve been in a French toast mood lately.

The French toast was some of the best I’ve had.  It was thick but still soft.  Maybe it was the Northeast maple syrup adding bonus flavor.  Anyway, it was great, and I have no complaints.

Miss Portland Diner Service: B
The waitress was friendly and nice.  She took our orders and came back when she could.  It was apparent the place was packed, and she was moving from table to table.  Something interesting that I’ve never seen is the servers telling people there was a 10 minute backup in the kitchen to take orders!  Not that that is a big deal, I’ve just never seen it before.

Miss Portland Diner Cost: $
For my French toast, coffee, and a coffee mug, the cost was $21.  The coffee mug itself was only $10.

  1. I love Miss Portland (which is good, since I live here….) They have the most amazing Chicken Pot Pie! And their corned beef hash is just insane. You’ll have to make another trip just to try more things!
