Blanchard's 101 Diner- A Mini Review

Blanchard's 101 Diner opened at 322 Cambridge St in Worcester about a month ago. Although I live about half a mile from the diner both Radioball and WormtownTaxi posted their positive comments regarding the food before I had a chance to sample the wares.

Crystal and I headed over there last weekend at peak breakfast time. The diner was busy but not crowded and we were able to snag a booth without any issues. This diner is interesting in the fact that it was built partially built in the 60's, but was never totally completed, until Blanchard's bought it and moved it to Worcester. So in essence it is a brand new 40 year old diner.

Everything gleams like it is brand new, very odd to enter a diner when the tile on the floor still sparkles and the chrome and stainless steel behind the counter shines oh so bright.

As far as the food goes, the breakfast menu was fairly basic and stuck to the diner staples you would expect. I ordered one of the specials (I forget what it was called at this point since our visit was last weekend)but the meal consisted of 3 scrambled eggs, an order of sausage and two pancakes. The eggs were great, nice and light and fluffy, cooked to perfection. The sausage links were split down the middle and fried and were just right as well. The pancakes were medium size, a great compliment to the size of the rest of the meal and did not overwhelm the plate or the person who was going to eat them. I ended up eating absolutely everything that was put before me.

The lovely Ms. C. had a Red Bliss potato and cheese omelet which she thought was well worth ordering. And throughout the course of the meal I think my coffee cup was refilled three times, so that is a big plus in my book.

There were certainly a few interesting characters who came in to eat including an elderly lady who was going on and on about how happy she was that the diner opened because both her and her sister never leave leave South Wisstah. In a neighborhood that is filled with more bad than good and more hard edges than soft it is great to see the Blanchard's open this gleaming oasis of good food and warm coffee.

I will certainly be back!
