2001 BEST Breakfast

Mike’s City Diner

Mike’s cinnamon and walnut waffles have all you ever wanted from a calorie, and more. The crispy home fries are perfectly salted on the outside, warm and soft on the inside. Of equal import is the atmosphere in which they’re served: These are genuine diner digs filled with a diverse clientele that forms a line out the door on weekend mornings. Just more icing on the coffeecake: friendly and fast (but not hurried) service, decent coffee, and a menu that includes such diner staples as grits and corned-beef hash.
