Detroit Customer Picks Up 7 Breakfast Tabs at Parks & Rec

If only more customers were like this.

An anonymous guest at Detroit's Parks & Rec Diner, 1942 Grand River Ave. in downtown Detroit, recently picked up breakfast bills totaling $271.60 for all seven other occupied tables, Eater Detroit editor Brenna Houck writes after seeing this Facebook post:

On February 11 a really amazing thing happened at P&R. We hosted a special person who, after completing a breakfast, secretly bought a morning meal for everyone in the Diner.

Our remaining guests were surprised to discover that their bills had been paid when they asked for their tabs. The guest, requesting to remain anonymous, had paid for their meals, included gratuity for our server, and then just slipped out the door.

We are touched by the generosity of strangers and love the "Pay it Forward" spirit making Detroit a unique place.
