It's got the casual, been-there-forever feel of a neighborhood hangout. The green-and-brown color scheme is oddly appealing, and the place looks bright and friendly. Diner ambiance minus the dinginess. No need to settle for a table and chairs -- it's all booths. And breakfast, naturally, is served all day, featuring monster omelets and refreshing honesty from the waitstaff: "Have the hash browns. The home fries have been sitting all morning." Philly cheesesteak for Saturday lunch, tuna melt, you know the drill -- or wait, maybe you don't. There's so few true diners in this town, you might think it's a new concept. But look at the pics on the wall -- new it ain't, thank goodness. And hey, if this spot's good enough for the Bee Gees (young, not!), it's good enough for you.
