It's hard to miss this neon-lit diner on the corner of Waverly Place and Sixth Ave in the West Village. The neighborhood institution has been around for years, and in 2011 it underwent a gut renovation that made the old-fashioned interior a bit more modern. It's still equipped with diner decor like padded vinyl booths and dark wood paneling and serves the same Greek, Italian, and American standards. The menu has just about anything you could want, from buttermilk pancakes and malted milkshakes to thick-cut steak fries and an endless variety of omelets. Note: it's cash only.
