And it’s not because that braying television huckster Guy Fieri stopped in once; it’s because the Broadway Diner is open 24 hours, you can get breakfast anytime (huge requirement for anything seriously calling itself a “diner”), they serve stuff like “Disco Fries,” they have a “Happy Waitress” item on the menu (in this case an open-faced grilled cheese and bacon), they serve a Soup of the Day, they offer a Vegetable du Jour, they have a Kids Menu section on their giant menu, they have a giant menu, they are friendly, they have a giant coffee cup on their sign, and they top off the cuppa coffee on our table. And they have the crazy dessert case with the chocolate mousses. But we’re having rice pudding. And more coffee.
