    If you're really nice to the waitress she will make you mimosas before they start serving alcohol and give you banana bread.

    (Best of Boston 2013-DINER) Improper Bostonian says, "It has all the requisite elements for a retro diner: neon lighting, swivel stools lining the counter and, for $2, a bottomless cup of coffee."

    Waitress what extremely rude. She started argimuing with me and wouldn't answer my question about how much it would be to add something. She elevated her voice and then walked away. I refused to eat.
