AWESOME LATE NIGHT FOOD

Walking in, the place has a charming diner feel. The waitresses are friendly and in great moods for it being past midnight.

Avalon is clearly a breakfast place. Their pancakes and waffles are to die for. Their eggs are good. Their toast is good.

I’ve also had a couple of sandwiches and a stir fry from Avalon, and they weren’t bad either. Not anything special, but not bad.

Their curly fries are great. Not too crispy, not too floppy. Seasoned and yummy.

And the best part is they are cheap. You can get a short stack and curly fries with a drink for under 10 dollars. Every time I come to Avalon I am surprised at how cheap the bill comes out to be.

Also, in the suburbs, a place that is open past 10, let alone 24 hours is rare. A great place to go and hang out. A great place to get a cheap, tasty bite.
If you haven’t been here before, I suggest you go and try it out soon!

Short Stack

Good pancakes. Fresh, light, fluffy, filling. Some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had.

Curly Fries

A huge portion for a side. Not too soggy or crispy. Seasoned. Delicious.

Chocolate Milkshake

Made with real milk and ice cream. Diner style. Whipped cream on top. Very yummy. Nothing too special though.

Chicken Stir-fry

Nothing special about the stir-fry. Still good. Edible. Great at 1 am, if you’re craving stir-fry. And, remember, this is a diner. For a very low price, not only is the stir-fry huge, it also comes with soup or salad and crackers.

Greasy cups

The worst restaurant award goes to this place. We had a dirty table, the waiters were running around like jack rabbits, the french toast was greasy and gross. Our cups of orange juice had left over greasy residue on them. This was not a…

Long time...

This place has been around for longer than I have been alive! It is always a good place to go for a bite to eat! It isn't the classiest joint but you will definitely leave full without emptying your pockets!
