During a recent trip to Washington we decided to try Ollie's Trolley one morning for breakfast, as it was conveniently located to our hotel.
The diner, from the outside, looks like one of those places that you'd probably glance in the window of and carry on walking past. When we visited at a weekend we were one of only two groups of customers there, although two other couples appeared shortly afterwards. We had plenty of space despite the old-fashioned street corner diner being adorned with vintage, quirky fairground decorations and retro fixtures and fittings. It certainly adds character to the place but glancing around you couldn't help but feel that the place could do with a little renovation. Perhaps that's me and the way it is currently is part of the charm ...
Once we had managed to converse sufficiently with the lady that was behind the counter at one end of the restaurant to be able to actually order our meals, we waited for them to be prepared. The lady did seem to have her very own method of recording what each individual in a party would like to order; however this wasn't apparent at all and caused some confusion, coupled with her lack of English, as to what she thought we wanted. Never mind, we got what we asked for (I think!)
The food was very good value for money though be aware that if you have an issue with eating from a plastic plate with plastic knife and fork, then this place should perhaps be avoided for breakfast. I have to say that we did walk past again one evening and noticed that it was thriving in comparison to our morning visit, so they must be doing something right.
