Took me a while to sit down to write this review since I ate there a couple weeks ago.. but here it is. Wow... GENEROUS portions.. I ordered a 3 stack of pancakes along with my country fried steak meal and it looked like they cooked pancake batter in a round cake tin and cut it in 3 layers.. thats how BIG and fluffy those pancakes were. They were also VERY tasty! The steak was good too along with the grits and dippy eggs I ordered.. Paula Deen would love this place because with the pancake and grits came a small cup with about a half stick of butter in each for the pancakes and grits.. Thats awesome to be given that option! The ratio of price to quality/quantity of food is awesome! I had a BIG meal and came to well within a reasonable price and much cheaper than if I had ordered similar items at one of the franchises like IHOP or Dennys. There was a review on here where there was a suggestion/complaint about the salad only having iceberg lettuce as the only lettuce on it... well, its a DINER... not Sweet Tomatoes or a bistro, its a real DINER (it would fit great inside a rail car on train tracks). Service was great! Both times Ive gone the waitresses were attentive and very friendly. If I lived closer I would be going more often.
My family and I were customers for a while about 3 years but the last time we were there my son found a long black and gray hair in his food, we have never had a problem before so we took it easy and we asked the waitress to please take it back. The waitress was nice and apologize but she went to the register area and told the other 2 girls working that day and we can hear them talking so much nonsense about this! So... basically they said that "I" most of put the hair in the food! Honestly... WTH is wrong with people?! Once we paid I asked for names and sent management a very long email re: this small issue with their staff, not the hair but their horrible attitude but I never heard back from anyone so my family and I have never been back. We use to eat breakfast there at least 4 times per mo. Hopefully they will stop hiring low class people to service their customers.
Ive passed this place on many occasions, but never stopped. As it happened, this morning, we were in search of an establishment that served more home cooked/comfort meals. While on the go, we often find ourselves eating at Panera or Starbucks, youd be hard pressed to find anything authentic which is fortunately common in chain establishments. The parking lot was full, and there was standing room only as we waited to be seated. This was an indication that we stumbled upon a diamond in the rough. We ultimately decided to eat outside as opposed to waiting for an indoor table to become available otherwise the wait couldve been considerably longer. The atmosphere and service was friendly, more importantly the food was exactly what youd come to expect from a Diner. I had a deliciously satisfying Greek Omlete. Something tells me that we will be going back.
This diner was very busy on a Saturday at 11am. We sat down next to two locals who said theyd been going to that diner for ten years and had never been disappointed. The locals saw us taking our time with the menu so they recommended getting the French toast. I was worried our expectations were too high at this point, but the French toast was as moist and tasty as we had hoped. My dining mates corned beef hash was also flavorful, not overly salty, and went well with the white grits on the side. I generally expect diner coffee to be watered down, but here it actually tasted like normal fresh drip coffee. The owner walked around making sure customers were happy and they seemed happy to host as well. Very glad we stopped here during our time in Tampa.
You get a lot for a little at this place, Ive never left Three Coins hungry. Good food too. Id recommend the chicken souvlaki, or if youre in an adventurous mood and like to get stared at, try the waffles and ice cream with chocolate syrup. It will make you feel like a kid again, while also making everyone else in the diner jealous. Tastes as good as it looks. Also, you dont have to worry about a bad crowd late night either because, as one of the only 24 hour restaurants in town, its a pit stop for many law enforcement officers. I wouldnt go here for a romantic dinner date, but for a place thats open all night, you cant beat the service, quality of food and convenience. For what it is, I cant see how anybody could rate it less than 5/5.
Today was a huge disappointment! Whenever my family and I ever come here the service is usually pretty good. However, I was completely disgusted with todays service. I came in three month old; and one of the waitresses, Bonnie, did not even greet me after I sat down and I instantly felt uncomfortable after I said " Hello" and she said "Mmhm yea, hi" very nonchalantly. The other server Jill or Julia (whatever her name is) placed the orange juice on the table with an attitude. Said nothing whatsoever. I decided to sit back and observe more. The main server Bonnie (granted they were short staffed), but I noticed how she checked on other guests frequently. I was not impressed. We usually tip VERY well too whether they know it or not!!!
Three Coins Diner is an very good place to get breakfast! We stopped for a quick breakfast at TCD on our way home and it turned out to be a very good choice. I had a western omelet and my wife had a vegetarian omelet with cheese. Both were good, but my wife was especially happy with hers ... shes found that most places dont do those very well. They came with home fries - which were better than most Ive had - and toast. Service was friendly and quick, at least at first. By the time we were ready to leave, however, it took much longer than I expected to pay and get our receipt. Possibly a fluke, who knows? But the food was fine, and if you want a decent breakfast, Three Coins Diner will do very well.

Down home good food at affordable prices. The chefs actually use spices. Great bottomless coffee. The waitresses are obviously very experienced, last night our waitress took our order without writing anything down. My husband and I were making bets on exactly how many mistakes will be in each order because we ordered items with small changes. With precision our dinners were served perfect. Our coffee cups were always fresh. Im a native here. This place has a feel of "Old Tampa", please do yourself a favor. Skip messing up your kitchen. Hit Three Coins. Youll leave with a great leftovers for the next night too.
The Three Coins Diner: Nebraska Ave. Quaint, home-town atmosphere. Greek owned. Manager greeted us as soon as we walked in. Maybe 40-50 people there. Order taken at 11:58 am. Waitress sat down and took our order (we thought is was cute), served at 12:20 pm. Home style cooking; I had a Western Omelette, Faith had 3 huge pancakes with scrambled eggs and our coffee. $16.05 meal + $3.95 tip. Everything we ordered was correct, butter was real butter, coffee was fresh and smooth. Never ran out of coffee and didnt have to ask for anything. Outside was nice see pics. 4 stars. Will go again and posted on facebook
