We love this 1950's neighborhood breakfast icon. Try this wonderful restaurant any weekday for a great breakfast experience-- weekends are standing room only. Sidewalk seating adds to the charm. My recommendation? The build your own omelette with 5 ingredients of your choice.

This place is cheap and cheerful. Usually easy to get a table outside. Good is very unremarkable and not that tasty. Cheap ingredients. The portions are big and it's perfectly fine to full up for the morning.

Brisk walk from the court house. Lot's of "badge" people (city and court employee's dine hear). Nice outdoor seating. great service and good food. The "brown bag" people are released prisoners - probation office across the café. Check out the daily specials. recommended MeuterMedia

POPS is a throwback to the 1950's Diner. You choose from sidewalk or interior dining. Portions are large, food is fresh but service is hit-and-miss (kinda slow but always friendly). We love this place.
