Post Road Diner… The Breakfast Time Machine!

Post Road Diner, 312 Connecticut Avenue, Norwalk, CT

The Post Road Diner is an awesome 1950’s style diner that makes you feel like you just stepped back in time!  Not to the time of the dinosaurs, but to the 1950’s and 60’s.  The diner opened 46 years ago in 1965, when my dad was born!

The diner not only has great food, but is decorated with a fun collection of things from when the diner first opened, like Coca-Cola bottles and merchandise, models of cars and old signs.  They even have an old-school soda fountain!

I asked, our hostess, Irene Daris, whose Uncle Teddy Giapoutzis owns the diner, “What are the most popular breakfasts on the menu?”

She said, “The Almond Crusted French Toast is AMAZING — it’s stuffed with Bavarian Cream!… People also love the California Omelet, which has avocado inside”


I had the best French Toast — Cinnamon-Raisin Flambé French Toast it is made with bananas, whipped cream, and a sauce made from brown sugar and bananas.  I did not have the flambé part of it, because it is made with Rum — and, I’m a kid, not a Pirate 🙂  Really, a flambé is when you put alcohol on food and you put it on fire! Sounds hot!!! I also had a chocolate milk which was really good!

  3. Wow, Alex. Stepping back in time to when your dad was born IS almost like the dinosaurs! I’m just kidding. Have you ever had a Greek appetizer called saganaki? They flambe goat or sheep cheese with ouzo, then put the fire out with lemon juice while yelling “opa!” It’s pretty fun and delicious.
