The Silver Diner: Vegan Restaurant Review: Update

You may recall that I wrote a review of my regional favorite, The Silver Diner, sometime last year. With multiple vegan menu items, a plant-based diner may be faced with the unfathomable conundrum of having to make a choice about what to order, a rare dilemma, indeed. 

Since writing that review, the Silver Diner has actually expanded its plant-based choices, and for that, I’m grateful! 

My family returned the other night, and I was excited to see a few additions to the menu, including a new roasted tomato dish, and, as I pleaded for in my previous review, plant-based milkshakes!

The Newmarket Roasted Tomatoes with pesto.

Although I had originally intended to order the vegan Just Eggs Benedict, the roasted tomato dish spoke to me. It was very tasty, although I thought it would be extra delicious served on a bed of pasta. 

New plant-based milkshakes!

There are now 3 plant-based milkshake options. I chose the Minty Grasshopper. Y’all. These things are huge! Not only do you get the joy of the fancy glass, but they give you the blender cup with enough extra shake to fill up the glass again! The shake was just minty enough, with bits of Oreo cookie. I would definitely order this again!

They still have all of their original vegan menu items, including tacos made with Beyond Meat, the oat protein pancakes, and Just Egg dishes, but I love the new additions as well. It’s really great to have vegan dessert options! This is definitely a missed opportunity for so many restaurants. They may only have one vegan meal option with absolutely no desserts. 

Thank you, Silver Diner, for answering my plea for vegan milkshakes! I’ll definitely be back!


Have you tried the Silver Diner? They have locations in Virginia, Maryland, DC, and New Jersey. I highly recommend dining here!

As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.

  1. So I’ve seen the Silver Diner facade for years around here (I live in MD) but always kind of discounted it because diner = not vegan. But wow, had no idea they were so vegan-friendly. Turns out there’s one 4 miles from my house AND yes they have the plant-based milkshakes. OMG, must try. Thanks for enlightening me!
