Neighborhood Eats: Metro 29

Connoisseurs of the big breakfast may meet their match at this diner with its wooden booths, table jukeboxes, and wisecracking waitresses. The portions are huge and the fixings classic: eggs over easy with thick slices of baked ham, crusty home fries, and a Greek omelet loaded with tomato, onion, and feta. Java is done right, too: dark, muddy, and served in thick-lipped cups.
