Jimmy's Eastside Diner

Jimmy’s Eastside Diner has 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 any dinginess. If Jimmy’s looks familiar, it’s probably because the diner was used as one of the filming locations in Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning 2016 film Moonlight. Ready your camera, because you’ll want to take a photo for the ’gram. Seating is all booths, and breakfast is served all day, including monster omelets and refreshing honesty from the waitstaff, as in: “Have the hash browns. The home fries have been sitting all morning.” Philly cheesesteak for Saturday lunch, tuna melts — the fare has all the authentic markings of a classic diner. New Normal: Look for hand sanitizer at the tables. The diner also now offers all condiments — from ketchup to maple syrup for your pancakes — in individual packaging.
