John's Place

Diner in Victoria

This friendly, diner-style hangout is lined with memorabilia (complete with obligatory jukebox), while its enormous menu is a cut above standard diner fare. Start off with a basket of addictive housemade bread then load up on generous pasta dishes, piled-high salad mains or pancakes that come with a stupendous cream-cheese-and-syrup dip.

The walls are a museum of signed celebrity photos.
