Has breakfast here while in town for a wedding. Some of the best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. Biggest pancake I've ever seen and eaten as well. Everyone else's food was spot on. The people here are great and the service was excellent.

I guess it was the owner who greeted us at the front door.He told everyone outside that they would be seated a few at a time so that the kitchen would not be overwhelmed with orders. Being that we were the 3rd seated, I didn't mind this. But if I had been waiting outside with the others (there were a... More

I wanted to take my son Tom for breakfast and usually we go to a bagel store but today he suggested Mary's Gourmet Diner. I like to try places that I haven't been to so this was a great chance for me, even though he has been there several times before. The outside is very unassuming but as soon as... More

Saw a piece on UNC TV (North Carolina Weekend) about Mary's Gourmet Diner and knew it had been in news so we gave it a try. It is situated in the Arts District of Winston Salem so anything is possible. First we noticed no parking. After circling block found a place. Checking in was an experience. Asked one person if...

Mary's has an excellent choice of breakfast options if you are gluten free. I had the perfectly cooked poached eggs on GF bread with the cheese sauce. Delicious! I was worried that the cheese sauce would be too heavy, but it was perfect. Nice that you can order a cup or pot of tea. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed Mary's. The food was excellent and we loved the biscuits. They were so friendly and helpful to us which we appreciated since we had our 11 month old with us.

I've been to Mary's several times before but this time I was bringing first timers with me. I had promised them they would be impressed and they were! We arrived just at 10am on Sunday as they were opening and had a very short wait. If you go most days, plan to wait awhile. They do a great job of... More

The biscuits and gravy are the best I've had in a restaurant. Loved it. The service is very friendly and attentive. If you like a low key casual start to your day this is the place.
