“The Grande Dame”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I have a habit of visiting the Old Lady after a Dawn Service. The pie and mashed potatoes were the attraction back in the 70's when i first visited; wear medals and it was free. She's still going strong, and a great place for a cheap feed of good wholesome food.

“Thanks Goodness for the White Lady”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

I have always wondered what keeps the staff at the White Lady going. It must be the entertainment factor of watching all the drunken louts and lasses trying to read and order food from them.
The White Lady has saved many a clubber from a hangover and provides a good solid lining for the thrifty night owls stomach. Even though the staples such as burgers, hotdogs, chips, toasted sandwiches are pretty much the extent of the menu, they are well made, quick and value for money. It also helps that they are open throughout the night!

“Best Greasy Spoon ever”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

This street car reminds me of a 50's diner. It's not the decor that you go to the White Lady for. It's that hunger after a night of drinking just before you go to bed. The signature White Lady burger was delicious and put me into a coma.
