Concierge.com's insider take:
You can get a mean eggs-over-easy breakfast and robust homemade soups at this idiosyncratic luncheonette, but sandwiches are the main attraction: Try a mound of thinly sliced roast beef dipped in cooking juices, or a spicy chicken cutlet topped with long hots (peppers) or garlicky broccoli rabe. The walls are decorated with pictures of notables (former mayor Frank Rizzo, Frank Sinatra, Bugs Bunny), and it's worth noting that the place slows down to the point of unofficially closing between the hours of 3:00 and 4:00, so the staff can watch General Hospital.
Open Mondays through Fridays 9 am to 4 pm.
