Editorial Review of Cozy Corner Diner & Pancake House

If Plato had envisioned an ideal form of the greasy spoon restaurant, it would look a lot like the Cozy Corner. The pictures of Elvis and James Dean on the walls, the waitresses who call you "hon," the old Pepsi ads, the big menu above the grill…it's all there. Aside from the fact that the place closes early (it's only open for breakfast and lunch, which is a real shame), it pretty much epitomizes perfection.

The food is, obviously, diner fare, with breakfast taking up most of the menu. Omelets, egg dishes, and pancakes are plentiful, and the accompanying sausages are enormous (a better deal than the bacon). That doesn't mean you should avoid the burgers, though. The lunch menu is just as good as the morning fare. And the best part is that it's dirt cheap. A meal-for-one will have a hard time cresting the $10 mark, including tip.

It's a smaller space, and gets crowded on weekends for brunch, but there's usually room at the counter for one or two (where the service is better anyway). Now, if someone could only convince these folks to keep the place open late…

Average cost: <$10
