I discovered Galaxy Diner many years in a galaxy just a short distance away ago aka the first month I moved to Richmond. My roommate at the time took me and a couple of her friends after a VMFA happy hour. And I'll be honest, I've never been to Galaxy for anything but dinner. But it's breakfast food all day, so you could feasibly brunch here. And breakfast for dinner is second best to brunch. Actually, maybe better because you can breakfast for dinner on weekdays, too.
Anyway, I feel compelled to write a review for Galaxy and let those that don't know about this galaxy that's much closer than a galaxy far, far away. Galaxy is situated about halfway through Carytown, between Greek on Cary and Carytown Cupcakes. It has sliding glass doors, but you have to press the button for them to slide open, which is genius, or else they'd be sliding open every second for every Carytown passerby.
The place is decorated like a throwback diner (imagine that), complete with vintage film posters that feature aliens. I'm actually not sure if the posters are for real alien flicks or not.Read More
