Mandy's Railway Diner: Heidelberg, Germany

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Leaving Mannheim, Taylor and her husband took me to Mandy's Railway Diner in Heidelberg for breakfast on my last day! As you can see below, the “diner” is actually a de-railed train-turned-restaurant and it's most definitely marketed toward Americans. The decor was 50s and 60s USA (there was a vintage barbie marking the girls' bathroom and a vintage GI joe marking the boys'), the menu was in English and the meals were so American, (minus the grease and minus the 'I kinda want to throw up after eating this' post-meal regret). I ordered a veggie omelet, hashbrowns, toast with jam and then discovered the meal came with an extra plate of French toast and syrup (I was too excited by this to photograph extra plate). Needless to say, I will be visiting Taylor again (hopefully sooner rather than later) and I'm thinking another trip to this diner will be on the itinerary...
