South Street Diner Restaurant Review

: Late-night partiers, tourists and the rest of the neighborhood come for the reliable, simple food that has been a South Street tradition since the 1800s. Dark wood floors and booths, colorful plastic lamps within, and the red brick exterior are in keeping with the surrounding architecture in this historic part of the city, where homes and restaurants intermingle. The friendly staff sports T-shirts with logos and smiles. The vast menu, which features breakfast any time, is a big draw. Aside from the Italian specialties, omelets and sandwiches, both hot and cold, there is Greek food as well. Select dessert from the counter at the front.
