Next Dallas feature is the Maple Leaf Diner. Don’t let this diner, which is located in a strip mall, deceive you. They are what I would describe as a hipster diner and are whipping up some delicious and over the top dishes. Maple Leaf Diner is making their food from scratch and bringing a taste of Canada to the big D. See how they ranked.

Ma and I split the diner omelet (create your own) with spinach, feta, and sausage served with home fries and homemade blueberry preserves. Fresh ingredients and huge portions. The home fries were delicious! The blueberry preserves were some of the best I’ve had and tasted delicious on the thick pillowy toast.
Pot Roast Poutine: Fresh cut fries, pot roast, cheese curds and brown gravy . Pretty decent poutine for a “diner” in Texas (tee hee). An appetizer that eats like a meal. The pot roast was thick and meaty and the cheese curds light and creamy. The whole dish had a nice balance of salty and savory.
Chicken, Bacon, & Waffles: Fried chicken breast and crispy bacon served on stacked Belgium waffles, topped with fresh strawberries and cream puffs . Talk about over the top! This is the perfect breakfast for your inner child. It’s adult enough to qualify as breakfast, but sweet enough to spoil any appetite for the rest of the day. It’s a delicious tower of yum! The cream puffs were delicious! Ice cream inside a flaky pastry? Whaaat?! The chicken was juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The fresh strawberries cut through the salty bacon.
Maple Leaf Diner has the classics, but they take these favorites and give them a makeover. Such as the Magic Mike Burger and the Lox Benedict & Latkes. Be sure to check out their dairy bar and fresh, homemade desserts. The best part is that they serve beer/wine and you can get a “boozy” adult shake while enjoying a solid meal.
