John Street Cafe Restaurant Review

: The emphasis at this friendly and immaculate diner, a neighborhood mainstay for years, is inventive omelets. One makes a generous meal and sometimes is enough for two given the standard “three eggs and a ton of filling” size. The avocado, bacon and Jack cheese omelet is probably the most popular, but others, such as the Cajun rock shrimp number or the marinated chicken, are also well worth trying. Sides such as hash browns, buttered toast, homemade raspberry jam, and even the mandatory sliced orange all measure up to standards set by the main dish. Don't like eggs? Try the black currant and filbert pancakes. Lunch-goers may want to consider the quesadillas or the blackened fish sandwich. When the sun shines, dine outdoors on the patio. Expect to wait for a table on weekends.
