I've been looking for a friendly neighborhood diner type of place, and I think I've found it; too bad I don't live in this neighborhood.

Very interesting sports memorabilia deco for the place that takes me back to good ol childhood days.

We have been to Marlins Cafe in Nelson's store 3 times, and each time keeps us coming back. Generous hearty sandwiches and burgers, along with craft beer selections. Good place to go when you are hungry. Between my husband, son and I we have had burgers (real ground beef, not mystery patty), the Full Nelson, Reuben and cheesesteak. I enjoy... More
