Haute comfort food is the focus at this cute diner across from the Claremont hotel. The brunches are legendary for quality and value, and customers line up outside the door before the restaurant opens on the weekend. If you come during prime brunch hours, expect a long wait, but the soft-style eggs are worth it. Pancakes, waffles, and French toast are more flavorful than usual, with variations such as potato-cheese and orange-rice pancakes. Lunch and dinner offer burgers,
favorites such as Mom's macaroni and cheese, and chicken potpie, but always with a festive twist. Reservations are accepted 48 hours ahead for dinner and for lunch parties of six or more, but, alas, you can't reserve a table for brunch.
