This is a neighborhood restaurant, with uniformly good food, daily specials, great, friendly service and management, and nice surroundings. The staff are all excellent, they work together to take care of you, none of that "I'll get your server" nonsense you find in some places. Gabby is my favorite but none of them are lemons! The place is great for both breakfast and lunch (I'm not sure if they are open at other times or not). As others have said, they've been in the same place for years, and they are a neighborhood treasure for great "everyday" fare.

Probably one of the more affordable breakfast joints in the area. Smokes First Watch. A classic, unpretentious cafe with a wide variety of menu items to please everyone. Very good prices. I like the Southwest Omelet or the pancakes.

The 5th Avenue Cafe has been in this neighborhood for decades. It continues to provide fast service and good home cooking. The menu is extensive and they'll cook to your order. Have it your way at lunch and get back to work on time!

A "find" of which I was unaware. Good breakfasts and a very busy spot, which is testament to its food. Well-priced and sizeable so can go on a weekend day for breakfast and not have a long wait.

Finally, a good restaurant within walking distance from our home. Excellent breakfast at reasonable prices. It has been completely redone and is well worth the visit. Their hash browns are some of the best that I have had and the eggs are done to perfection. Over all very good!
