A ‘50s diner with an ‘80s theme? It’s a wonder the lines aren’t even longer at this tiny Allston enclave. What was once Henry’s Diner underwent a transformation in 2001, with throwback TV and movie ephemera now dotting the modest space. This is a breakfast- and lunch-only affair, with a surprising emphasis on healthy and sustainable ingredients: cage-free eggs, gluten-free pancakes, fruit smoothies and specialty teas. Harkening to the diner’s name, dishes include The Basketcase (two eggs, home fries, toast, pancakes or French toast, and choice of meat) and The Dean’s Office (toasted bagel, smoked salmon, cream cheese, onions, tomatoes, capers).
