We have always loved this place but my jaw dropped last week when I opened the menu and saw the outrageous hike in their prices!!!!over 12.00 for an omelette?????over 9.00 for biscuits and gravy??? There are two little benches where you wait for your table. Very easy. They have now gone big time I guess with these electronic devices that buzz when you're table is ready. Why?????? The waiting area is no more than a 6'x6' area. They could just take your name and look over and say "your table is ready ". So maybe this one of the reasons for the big rise in prices. Ridiculous! Unfortunately we can't afford to have breakfast there anymore. Two or three years ago they did about a 25% increase. We hung in there but this is an even bigger increase. Really sad to do this to customers that have been coming there for over 10 years. Rebecca. Meridian Idaho

Dream of the blueberry pancakes & those homefries! Superb!
To live for! They have drive through service which is convenient as well. In & out seating for busy wait times.
Only inside seating for dining. You can choose counter (usually no wait), table or booths.
Clean bathrooms.
1 bathroom for men.
1 bathroom for women.
You can call in orders to pick up & go as well.
Sometimes it gets quite noisy here as well. Parking tends to be tight especially if you drive a large vehicle.
I don't know where you can park if you have a semi, rv, boat, trailer attached to your vehicle. Good luck with that.

This diner is our favorite breakfast spot in Meridian, maybe in the entire Boise Valley. Service is fast and attentive, menu is extensive, and prices are reasonable. Nothing fancy, just honest food and friendly service. A winner!

No frills just great eating. We love coming here for breakfast. Friendly service, great food, and large portions! Warning the pancakes are the size of a dinner plate and delicious!

Several places around town have good hotcakes, eggs, and bacon. What makes Express special is the employees, many of whom have been there for many years. They NEVER let you wait for service or a refill, and they will happily customize your weird requests ANY way you want. They just make you feel welcome, full, and appreciated every time without fail. They usually have a line on the weekends, but it always moves incredibly fast- never more than about 15 minutes even when the line is out the door. You want smiles, big portions, custom requests, and good food- this is a great choice. The owners have been the same for decades, and so have many of the cooks and servers- they are happy and it shows in their service. Enjoy, and bring your appetite/1
