Breakfast. It's not only the most important meal of the day; it's also the cheapest. Or at least it used to be. Then restaurants started charging absolutely ridiculous prices for the morning meal. Fifteen bucks for an omelet? That's highway robbery for a few eggs, cheese, and maybe some veggies. What happened to those good, old-fashioned coffee shops where you could get a plate of eggs and a coffee without breaking the piggy bank? Everything about Diner by the Sea is retro — starting with owner Billy at the griddle slinging hash and cracking hen's fruit. Sit at the brightly colored vinyl stools at the counter or in a booth and enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while you peruse the menu items — all way under ten dollars. Choose a hearty country sausage and gravy ($8.99) or the lightest, fluffiest pancakes you've ever had ($5.29). If you're on a budget, a simple egg-and-home-fries breakfast with toast is only $3.99. And on weekends, your first mimosa is free. As you dig into your plate, look around to see a good assortment of tourists and locals cohabiting in harmony over coffee, chatting about the weather and condo values. This is what a good, old-fashioned restaurant is supposed to be.
