Deacon's Corner: Delicious, Comforting Cuisine

There is little that satiates the palate with as much satisfaction as a big plate of cheap, delicious diner cuisine, and the recently opened Deacon’s Corner, at 101 Main Street, provides just that.

Opened late last year by the people behind Latin restaurant, Cobre, Deacon’s Corner was apparently inspired by restaurateur and partner, Tyson Reimer’s grandfather, who owned a truck-stop in Manitoba.

With that in mind, the interior is exactly what you would expect from a truck-stop diner; simple booths, banquettes and small tables, along with a bar counter complete with the menu written on huge chalkboards above. With my tummy grumbling and my eyes searching the giant plates of delectable food streaming from the kitchen, I quickly began to scan the menu for something mouth-watering.

Open from 7:00am to 3:00pm on weekdays and 10:00am to 3:00pm on weekends, Deacon’s Corner offers delicious breakfast and lunch options from chicken fried steak and eggs, French toast, sausage and biscuits, a plethora of meat and veggie omlettes along with house-made hot dogs, meat and veggie burgers, open faced turkey sandwiches and macaroni and cheese.

With so many options, I settled upon the breakfast sandwich of fried egg, bacon, cheese and tomato with a very generous portion of real, shredded hash browns. My partner on this dreary Sunday afternoon ordered the same but decided to up the ante by sandwiching it between a house-made biscuit.

We watched the servers bustle about efficiently, pouring coffee and serving each table attentively without being irritating. After devouring our food and nearly licking the plate clean, it seemed more than appropriate to have a brew or two. At a mere $3.75 for beer on tap, served in a frosty mug, ice cold, how can you say no?

Deacon’s Corner has become and will remain my destination of choice for home-cooked, simple, delicious and cheap diner cuisine.
