Neighborhood Eats: Bob and Edith’s Diner

There’s nothing fancy about this diner. It’s been serving up hotcakes and country-fried steak since 1969, and the menu hasn’t seen many changes. Any combo of steak and eggs makes a hearty brunch, and the buttery biscuits are just what you crave at 2 am. Even health nuts can find something to love—turkey sausage and multigrain waffles.
