New Restaurant Alert

Owner of Robbie Fox's Public House Opens A.M. Diner Next Door

While frequenters of Tempe's Mill Avenue might not be holding their breath for the opening of yet another ice cream joint (Philadelphia-based Rita's Italian Ice is slated to open Wednesday, June 20, next to Mellow Mushroom), they may be excited to know there's a new place to grab some a.m. eats in town.

Last week, Dominic Jones, owner of Robbie Fox's Public House, opened a diner-style breakfast spot aptly named "Devil's Diner" right next door to his popular Irish pub.

"Since moving to downtown Tempe, we've noticed a lack of places to enjoy a traditional breakfast." Jones says. "As a throwback to the '60's, we set out to create the type of place your grandparents went to grab breakfast, a cup of Joe and just hang out."

Here's what Tempe breakfast biters can expect, and the full menu.

Featuring a breakfast counter and a small sitting area with a few tables, Devil's Diner will offer a traditional, short-order breakfast menu with classics like flapjacks, biscuits and gravy, and corned beef hash. The diner will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located next door to Robbie Fox's Public House at 640 South Mill Avenue.
