The Hi Life Diner – Mechanicsburg

On Tuesday July 12, 2011 we went to the Hi Life Diner on the Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg. It was a nice morning with a breeze so we  decided to eat breakfast al fresco out on the deck. We ordered our usual breakfasts of eggs, home fries and meat, Craig ordered the sausage patties, Bill ordered the ham and also opted for onions on his home fries. The waitress was nice and took good care of us. She also mentioned that the restaurant was celebrating its one year anniversary. At first glance they seemed a little pricey at $5.25 per breakfast, there was no special during the week, but when that food came out it was fantastic. Nice eggs, perfect home fries and the sweet onions on the home fries was amazing, generous portions of sausage and the ham slice was an entire slice off the end of a ham, not half a slice like most places give you. The new deck was nice with a fountain in the adjacent landscaping, and we should mention that the interior of the Hi Life is very nice, complete with at least two big screen TV’s and free Wi-Fi. They have a great menu for lunch and dinner too. Highly recommended !
