Marbled Rye toast, hash browns, and a sausage
and cheddar cheese omelet$8.50
Had some business to do in Portland this morning, so before our meeting we stopped at Becky’s Diner, on Commercial Street. Breakfast served 4am-4pm, besides lunch and dinner.
Becky’s has become a roll-up-your-sleeves basic breakfast experience for 25 years. The menu is what you’d expect - eggs, omelettes with sides, hash, pancakes and waffles. It’s all bargain-priced. You can eat and fill-up for less than $10.
Becky’s has been called an iconic diner, and I’m a sucker for diners. A few years ago, I did a photo project on these special eateries. In this one, Gardiner, Maine’s A-1 Diner is the focus.
