As part of the renovation of the Westfield Siesta Key Mall, new restaurants are moving in and one that is now open is Metro Diner.
Since its 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. 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.
They have expanded throughout the southeastern United States and in Florida to 18 locations with Sarasota being the latest. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.
We had brunch there on a recent Sunday morning and it was buzzing. After a short wait we were seated and promptly greeted and served. I would describe the food as comfort food with many popular menu items. Portions are large. It was all good and I’m sure we’ll be going back soon. Here’s a couple photos of our meals:
