Avalon Diner

Haven't been to Avalon even longer.  Not that I don't want to, but with a mobile toddler, it is hard.  Now that he can sit still (for 5 mins) it makes the trip a little easier.
 I miss my diner coffee.  Something about them that have that special taste... burnt bottom, too much ground... what is that secret tip? 
 Got my usual Corned Beef Hash with 2 eggs.  If you go back to my post 2 yrs ago, you'd notice (as I did) that the portion of corned beef hash is about the same as the hash brown.  As you can see here, that's totally not the case.  As a matter of fact, by the time I finished the eggs, the hash brown, I was able to eat 1/3 of the corned beef hash that had to box it home.  It was a lot of food.

As usual, the place was packed, you wait your turn on the bench.  And as soon as they can turn your table, they do and get a move on.  Food pretty much stayed the same, except with the aforementioned portion increase.  Otherwise, same diner feel that you don't get at much of the places any more.
