As bars and restaurants sprout up across Miami Beach, one of the area's oldest and most beloved diners still holds its place. Since 1992, the quaint, Airstream-style aluminum façade, which dates to the '40s, has endured hurricanes, floods, and a profusion of Pitbull album releases. Its shiny red booths remain intact, and its menu is current. Come for a Monte Cristo ($10.25), where grilled ham, Swiss, and turkey are sandwiched between slices of French toast, or a Crabby Patty ($11.50), which places fried crab cakes and homemade tartar sauce on a roll. For more typical diner fare, opt for country fried steak and eggs ($11.99); the farmer's scramble ($9.99), served with vegetables and cheddar cheese; or the "3 pair" ($11.25), which includes two eggs, two pieces of bacon or sausage, and two pancakes or French toast.
