Breakfast

Burgers

Less coffee shop, and more retro diner, Travis is the go-to, cash-only spot for heaping portions of greasy, breakfast, lunch, and dinner comfort food options. Half of the two-page, laminated menu is dedicated to breakfast favorites like omelets, bacon, and short stacks, while the second page is an impressively long list of sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers, homemade chili, milkshakes, and sides (including chicken strips and fried clams). Surrounded by laminated wood and clear plastic condiment bottles, we stuffed our faces with a loaded patty melt burger: a thick, juicy beef patty drenched in melted cheese and sautéed onions and topped with fresh, crisp lettuce and a fat slice of tomato between grease-soaked potato buns.
