The Diner

All-night breakfast on Adams Morgan's main strip.

From March 2004 Dirt Cheap Eats

No jukeboxes here. This 24-hour diner fits right in with its Adams Morgan neighbors. The booths and bar stools have red vinyl seats. There's a high, ornamental-tin ceiling. The servers can't be much over 30. Jazz plays in the background, even on weekday mornings.

For real cheap, the $2.99 egg sandwich does the trick. If you're hungrier, try the Diner Breakfast Royale--two eggs, two pancakes or French toast, toast, coffee, and ham, bacon, or sausage--for $7.99. Other choices include the B&B Omelet (bacon and bleu cheese) for $6.99, burger patty and eggs for $6.99, and the $7.45 Atkins feast: Nelli's All-Meat Omelet (with bacon, ham, sausage, and cheese).
