Meet the owner

“A diner’s like doing a dance every day,” says Ash Farrelly, who opened The George Street Diner in 2007. “It’s a flow, you know? It’s like you’re tucking around like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in between your tables with your coffee cups.”

The George Street Diner features red vinyl booths tucked up against the window, allowing customers a clear view onto Richmond Street. To the side is a long counter with swivel stools, giving diners prime views to where all the cooking action takes place. It’s a cozy space that Ash proudly says is completely without pretention; a diverse place where people from all walks of life can come together. “The neighbourhood’s a great neighbourhood,” she says. “You’ve got rich people…and you can have someone sitting there, telling you a story about how they lost everything.”

It’s the patrons that truly make The George Street Diner what it is, and it’s why Ash wouldn’t dream of being anywhere else. “Do you know what really made me fall in love with it, the diner?” she asks. “It’s the people just poppin’ their heads in and getting to know them.”

I found a small hair under a tomato in the burger I ordered at The George Street Diner.. When I had mentioned it to the server (older woman) she told me to notify her ahead of time so she could make a new dish but I had just found the hair near the end of the meal. The server also mentioned it didnt look like any of the staffs and proceeded to throw it on the ground. Within minutes afterwards she handed my colleague and I our bill for our table. She charged me $16 for my hair burger.

Great service. A cute diner atmosphere and there's usually somewhere to sit. Check out their lunch specials for items that aren't on the menu! I used to love going here to grab the paper and do sudoku near the window.
