This small, comfy restaurant lives up to its name with tables so close together, you're likely to make new friends. Indeed, the dining room pretty much feels like a breakfast nook, and the food tastes like your mom made it—provided she's a great cook. Think comfort food: fried chicken, barbecue brisket with mashed potatoes, and even a turkey dinner. There are no frills here, just solid cooking, friendly service, and a long line at peak times. At brunch don't miss the
peach pancakes or the baked cinnamon-swirl French toast.
