    The diner opened in 1946 and still supplements the familiar fare with a local delicacy known as a steamed cheeseburger. Another possibility: the Greens Supreme soup. Read more

    I'm a fan of diners and this one is my favorite. So much so that my second favorite is kind of distant second.

    Everything about this diner is *AWESOME*! I especially love the little sweetbread morsels you get before you order.

    Only one bathroom in the back. Watch out for the faucet because it shoots out like a firehose.

    I haven't met an omelette I didn't like here. And make sure to talk some baseball with Brian.

    Tremendous breakfast selection for a diner. Try the Bob Wolf omelette named after a regular patron. It's a Mexican spiced omelette. Usually crowded.

    Feel like you've just spent a shit ton of money on a college education and don't know what to do with your life? First things first: get the graduate omelette. Hey, it's a start….
