The Cap City Diner and Bar (three locations in Central Ohio) is not your typical diner as in old, a bit grubby, full of chrome and located in a slightly “unique” building. I would call this more upscale than traditional but they do serve some classic diner fares. Breakfast items are only served for brunch on Saturday and Sunday and there are daily blue plate specials such as liver and onions and chicken pot pie. On the day we went the special was meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy – it was a popular order.
The food there is good but I’ve been spoiled by DH who has taken me to a lot of the classic old diners in New Jersey. If the coffee is served in those thick stoneware mugs, they serve corned beef hash and the pies are close to 6 inches high then it’s my kind of diner.
