Lester's Diner has taken over Cosmos and renamed it to, you guessed it; Lester's Diner. Too bad. Cosmo's had the good sausages and Lester's doesn't.
In researching this I found that the Original Lester's is registered to a Corporation that no longer exists; I guess they didn't bother to tell the DBPR.
Previous Review of Cosmo's Diner:
I was driving in Northern Fort Lauderdale deciding where I was going to have lunch and then I remembered a diner I'd seen last weekend near Bru's in Pompano. I hadn't had more than a half bagel for breakfast so I figured I'd give them a try. I'm about out of diners in Fort Lauderdale and I'm always up for a late breakfast.
I saw a couple of good reviews for the place online; and one really bad one that was obviously fake on UrbanSpoon. I like to form my own opinion so in I went.
Its a pretty small place with a counter up front, a section of booths and a dining room. I'd described the place as very clean and a bit dated in its decor. 102.7 is playing 60s and 70s music on the sound system, adding to the aura.
An older gentlemen is a one man show here; he clears tables, takes orders and serves. This is a family operation. Their sign says "Home Cooking". He brings a menu and I order some coffee.
They serve breakfast all day, which is a good formula for getting someone like me to visit at 3pm on a Saturday. The menu is fairly standard. I see the "Spanish Omelet", but I've capitulated on that quest. I order my standard order, hoping for something very different from my recent disaster at Waffleworks.
The food come out fairly quickly. One look and I know I've left Waffleworks far behind. This is going to be good.
The have the big, plump, good sausages, and the home fries were just right. The eggs were cooked properly. They have splenda. Its a bright sunny day. The gentlemen knows how to ask if I'm ok without bugging me.
I enjoyed the breakfast here. You can tell when a kitchen knows what they're doing. So you might want to give them a try.
