Five & Ten Diner

“There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”  — Ron Swanson of ‘Parks and Recreation’

And the Five & Ten Diner in Sidney certainly serves up good cures!Five & Dime Diner 1

The décor, like the restaurant name, hearkens back to the 60s, with posters and other reminders of that era, several featuring Marilyn Monroe or James Dean.

I had the Betty White Benny, recommended by our server as one of the favourite meals.  She says all the Bennies are really popular.
It was SO yummy!  I love the carmelized onions with the garlic under the eggs, which were done to my specified “just off runny”.

Five & Dime Diner 2The Benny was served with housemade hash browns that were spicy enough but didn’t compete with the flavor of the Benny.  The bacon was plentiful and perfectly done – almost no fat, not chewy and not charred.   This kind of bacon could make me a believer in that fad!


For sure, I’ll take company to the Five & Dime Diner for breakfast or lunch.  And I’ll be going back for myself!
