My sympathy goes out to all people affected by Hurricane Irene in the Capital Region and beyond, I hope everyone is doing okay getting their lives back in order. I just got my power back on this morning and I am doing fine.
Waking up to no electricity Monday morning was unpleasant, the milk could not be trusted and I wasn't sure how long my fridge was out for so I didn't end up eating the Lucky Charms, they didn't sound so lucky. I started looking for breakfast elsewhere and after finding my way through uncharted routes due to road closings I ended up at the Capital City Diner I guess I'm attracted to shiny buildings.
I enjoyed at least 3 cups of coffee and a hefty plate of french toast with sausage. It seemed pretty crowded, I'm guessing most people were in a similar situation to mine. The food was great however I used over a dozen syrup packets, I think next time I'll have to see if they can bring me a pitcher of it.
The Diner is located on 1709 Western Ave, you can't miss it.
