Metro Diner started about 8 weeks ago and features a local diner chain serving classic American breakfast and lunch fare in a warm atmosphere.
Metro Diner originated in Jacksonville and now features 29 locations across Florida, now including Melbourne.
Metro Diner may not be the type of place where you’d expect contemporary culinary techniques, a commitment to creating dishes from scratch, an award-winning presentation, unique recipes and imaginative twists on old classics, but it is.
It’s that type of place because they cook with heart. They cook for the love of food.
Since the building’s humble beginnings in 1938 and its revival as Metro Diner in 1992, Jacksonville’s favorite place for breakfast has been serving satisfied guests for nearly 25 years.
In 2000, master chef Mark Davoli and family took over and elevated the menu to include innovative new dishes created from local ingredients. Along with culinary creativity, the Davoli family brought more than 80 years of combined restaurant experience to Metro Diner.
Known for warm, welcoming service, familiar faces and award-winning food, Metro Diner is a go-to eatery for locals, visitors and those just passing through town. Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner in select locations, they would love to have you.
