The Red Wagon is a classic diner if I've ever seen one. You're nice and cozy with your neighbours, you literally walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom (I highly recommend making this walk just to experience it), there are kids' drawings posted on the windows and walls, the service is super friendly and fast, and the food is great! Needless to say, I would recommend adding this gem to your brunch repertoire.
Things to note: (1) This place is busy! So, be prepared to wait in line at least 10-15 minutes. (2) Their counter area looks so cool. I'm tempted to go back solo, just so I can sit at it! (3) There is an awning around the edge of the restaurant, so if it's raining, don't let that deter you from making your way to The Red Wagon.
The X that marks the spot.
My FREE fresh, home-made doughnut hole. Do they know how to keep customers waiting in line happy or what?!
My snowshoeing partner in crime's Trucker Breakfast with 2 over-medium eggs, 2 buttermilk pancakes, homefries, bacon and multigrain toast. ($11.75)
My Trucker Breakfast: 2 over-easy eggs, 2 buttermilk pancakes, homefries, sausage and sourdough toast. Now, normally I think it's a crime for two people to order the same meal at a restaurant. As a result, I was fully prepared to order the scrumptious looking St. Patty's day special, and had even put my order in...when I heard the sourdough toast option...total game changer!
In retrospect, I am 100% thoroughly happy with my change of mind. This meal was delicious and the pancakes are like no other pancake I've ever had. The picture doesn't do them justice, but they were unbelievably thick. It was like you got four pancakes instead of two. I loved it!
2 cream-soda candies with the bill...best end to a meal ever! I may have even gasped out loud in excitement when the bill arrived, much to our server's happiness.
