Location Description:

Amid the revolving door of trendy restaurants and nightclubs on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach is this shabby chic diner that's stood the test of time as one of the area's oldest restaurants. A lot of the waitstaff have been serving tables in the breakfast and lunch joint for years, so they know the greasy fare like the back of their hands. Locals come for the reliable standbys, like club sandwiches, pancakes, and home fries. The prices are reasonable, and even when there's a wait (during the breakfast rush), the turnover is generally fast.
