Service & Atmosphere
My Friends is the perfect place to visit when the bars shut down and you’re seeking a quick, warm meal. It also shouldn’t be overlooked for a tasty breakfast (served 24/7), or a fast lunch or dinner! The interior is very nice and extremely clean: new furniture, a full bar, modern decor–a vast change from your usual local diner.
The service during our visit was quick and efficient. While our waitress wasn’t too chatty, it was obvious that she was working hard to bounce between our tables, and she was certainly nice enough as she took our orders and delivered our food.
My Friends is a unique diner in that it is equipped with a beer and wine bar!
The restaurant also has a coffee bar featuring 100% Columbian coffee, along with specialty drinks like espresso and cappuccino.
We visited My Friends on a Saturday morning for breakfast, and I immediately noticed a variation of my favorite breakfast: eggs benedict. My Friends offered up an alternative benedict florentine ($6.99), served with a side of fresh fruit, that I knew I had to try. Eggs benedict is usually either really bad or really good, and this one ended up being near perfect! The English muffins were perfectly toasted, the eggs were poached beautifully, there was plenty of fresh spinach, and the homemade hollandaise sauce was thick and creamy. This is definitely a dish I would get again, and recommend to others!
My Friends serves up a variety of other breakfast favorites including traditional omelets, pancakes, waffles, and eggs. There’s also a handful of diner fare staples like boneless pork chops, homemade meatloaf, and fried chicken that can be found on the lunch and dinner menus. If you’re watching your waistline, there’s something for you, too! Check out My Friends’ variety of lighter options like salads and sandwiches.
If you find yourself stumbling through Lakewood after a long night of drinking, or if you’re seeking a good breakfast at a decent price, don’t overlook My Friends tucked away on Detroit Avenue. Open 24 hours a day, this is the perfect spot to grab a warm, home style breakfast (or lunch or dinner) at a low price.
