This neighborhood "finer diner" is perpetually lively and family-packed: Little ones love the kids' menu (for just $9, your tykes can scarf a cheeseburger, flapjacks, grilled cheese and other tasty mains, complete with a side and a drink), and parents delight in the extensive menu that offers burgers, salads, breakfast sandwiches and soul-warmers like bacon-wrapped meatloaf.
