Metro Diner has a nice selection of breakfast items. We were able to substitute items without any issues. Our group chose an outdoor table since we had 2 small dogs with us. Everything arrived quickly and was prepared as ordered. The Mgr stopped by to ask how we were doing, which I always appreciate. Service was quick. Looking forward to our next trip to Gainesville. Metro Diner will be on our list!

A friend told us about Metro Diner. We live 50 miles west of the place, but were in Gainesville for an appointment.Since we had ample time for lunch, we decided to check out Metro Diner, a block away. First impression: the place was crowded....a good sign. Service was fast and the menu offered plenty of good choices. I went for the chicken pot pie .My husband opted for the juevos rancheros and asked them to hold sausage.
The meals arrived in a reasonable time frame. The chicken pot pie was good. The juevos rancheros contained the sausage he'd asked to leave out. The waitress apologized and offered a substitution. We do not make a fuss over such stuff . He said he'd just pick out the sausage.
Within five minutes, the manager, Justin, rushed over, apologized and said that meal would be on him. I was impressed at the level of concern for the customer and the commitment to providing a positive experience. I will definitely be a return customer.
Metro Diner offers plenty of good meal choices and the quality of food is very good.
Try it. You'll like it.

Stopped in for breakfast on Friday morning, was busy but had open tables. We were told to select an open table. Immediately had our drink order taken by a food runner. After about 10 minutes of waiting the food runner came back and asked if we had been helped( we hadn't). He took our order (then refilled our coffee) and then promptly brought it out for us. The food was very good, our party ordered breakfast sandwich, yogurt/granola/fruit and hash browns (with onions). Everything was good except I would opt to not have the onions, they were a way too much onion piled on the hash browns. After we finished eating the waiter finally came by the table to give us our check and take payment. That was the only time he helped us.

Metro Diner has a nice selection on their menu and the food is always good. However, the wait staff was not as efficient, engaged or knowledgeable, as the two we've visited in Indiana.

Vast menu choices. Chicken and waffles were amazing. So much to chose from. Breakfast all day. Prices are reasonable and the portions generous.
