OMG! So glad we found this diner by accident. Loved the classic Eggs Benedict dish with Hash Browns. Even the coffee was very good. The Saint Johns Sandwich was also a hit. Looking around everyone looked pleased. The Chicken and Waffles looked amazing.

Hands down, the Metro has the best breakfast in Jacksonville. The food is always delicious and consistent. The staff, for the most part, are courteous and fun. There is nowhere else I would want to have breakfast. Lunch is great, too!
