Alexander's is a classic corner diner with beige cushioned booths and stools that are as comfy as the menu full of omelets, pancakes, french toast, sandwiches, and all your favorite no-hassle plates. Located in Edgewater, the space isn't exactly eye-catching (other than plant life in the windows, nearly every inch is wooden or, well, beige), but the portions certainly are: the coffee never stops flowing, and you can get a combo platter with a half-pound burger, soup, and fries. It doesn't get better than that.
