This historic diner shines with a recent renovation including Tiffany stained-glass windows, marble-top tables and a gleaming bronze coffee machine. Even the wait staff is gussied up in bow ties and bolero jackets. Mallorcas (a type of sweet bread), pastries and steaming cups of coffee are the favorites here but tasty breakfasts and daily specials make it easy to come for more.
