Best Late-Night Dining - 2012
Shawn & Nick's Courtyard Café
Shawn & Nick's Courtyard Café serves serious pancakes with a heavy dose of sass, any hour of the day. After-hours, the place is loaded with boys wrapping up a night at Bill's Filling Station, giggling girls out on the town, and crews of concertgoers postshow. The place is open till 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 24 hours Thursday through Saturday, and until 3 a.m. Sundays. A special late-night menu is stacked with goodies — sandwiches, burgers, salads, and fried foods, plus a whole page of breakfast items. Do yourself a favor and try a full-plate omelet, forsaking hash browns in favor of the café's golden brown tater tots, or go Hawaiian and indulge in a side of Spam. A signature slice of the day's pie makes for a happy ending.
