What Our Guests Are Saying

star rating submitted by customer

Absolutely the best fried chicken in town! You can either get their fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy and your choice of vegetable or you can get it with waffles. So so good. My coworker loves the shrimp and grits, she says they are amazing. My mother has had their meatloaf and that was also extremely good. Services also frighteningly fast and excellent too. One of the very best local restaurants.

Discover Mishawaka’s Hometown Spirit

And dig into the Best Breakfast, all day!

Mishawaka’s welcoming “hometown” feel is due to its many old-fashioned neighborhoods. Even new residential developments have adopted a retro feel to encourage community spirit. The city is home to 29 parks including an Olympic-size swimming pool and ice rink at Merrifield Park. Tobogganers head to George Wilson Park in the wintertime and in the summer, its 18-hole frisbee golf course is the place to be.

Other Mishawaka highlights:

  • University of Notre Dame – Go Fighting Irish!
  • University Mall
  • Mishawaka Riverwalk
  • Shiojiri Garden
  • Central Park
  • Battell Park
  • Robert C. Beutter Riverfront Park
  • Knollwood Country Club
  • Warren Golf Course

All that exploring is a great way to work up an appetite, so whether you come by Metro Diner to get your day started, or drop in after class or checking out the sights, know that breakfast all day is always on the menu. Because a stack of fresh Cinnamon Roll Pancakes tastes great morning, noon or night, don’t you think?

Order up breakfast classics like Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Belgian Waffles, fluffy Omelets or even a Breakfast Burger piled high with hashbrowns, egg and Hollandaise. Good morning and gooood night!

Metro Diner Kid’s Menu and Family Dining Seals the Deal
