Glad I Saw It: Dad’s Pie at Manny’s Diner

And the apostrophe is used correctly!

My family had a very busy weekend, and we decided that a diner was exactly what the Daddy ordered for dinner on Sunday. Our foursome was exhausted from the day as well as daylight savings; 7 PM was already late for us to be starting dinner.

We stumbled into Manny’s Diner counting on the solid meals and  the consistently kind and accommodating staff.

Sunday’s server was exactly what we needed: kind, funny, experienced enough to know NOT to draw attention to the dessert part of the kids’ meals, and savvy enough to know that one of us REALLY wanted the berry pie that came with his lasagne.

With our kids, she was firm but kind in explaining whose dessert was being packaged up to go. When we got home, we saw that she had made sure her message wouldn’t be lost without the messenger. Gotta love when a server is two steps above and beyond!

    Love her! And, yes, plenty of service industry people know how to punctuate short phrases, maybe even entire blog posts!
