Pauli's Diner is a location in Batman: Arkham Knight. It is located on Miagani island, on Grand Avenue.

The only time it it's featured in the story is in the very start of the game, where the player is put in the shoes of Officer Owens, about to break his diet.

However, before Owens got his order, a man walked up to him, and asked him to talk to a man who was smoking in the corner booth of the restaurant. Owens reluctantly walked to the booth and talked to the man, only to see a demonic creature attack him. Owens falls, and as he gets up, he saw that the whole diner was attacked by said creatures, and either shoots them/won't shoot them (Player's choice). However, either option has the same outcome, with the officer being knocked out by another creature.

Later, Scarecrow showed the residents of Gotham City footage of the customers attacking each other, while he admitted that he was behind the attack. This caused the GCPD to organize a mass evacuation, which left only the criminals and several brave police officers behind.

One Riddler Trophy was later inserted inside the destroyed diner.

Trivia

  • The name of the diner was a clear reference to Paul Dini, who wrote both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, as well as several other, non-video game stories.
  • Depending on whether the player shoots the demons, several pieces of dialogue would change later on in the game.
  • The diner's sign could be seen very briefly on the opening cutscene of Batman: Arkham Asylum. The different surroundings, however, suggested that this was a sister location.
  • The only confirmed survivor of the attack on the diner was Officer Owens, as both the bearded man and Sharon Jones are confirmed dead by the Shadow War DLC mission. The fates of the unnamed customers are not revealed.
