Mike’s Deli at Lazy Sundae: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

The folks behind the Slow Food movement ought to get a load of this lovable short-order grill, which proves that fast is not evil when it comes to cooking. If you’re in need of a quick grab, consider the Western wrap, a tasty breakfast burrito. For a hasty yet hearty sit-down, there’s corned-beef hash, a marvelous fry-up of potatoes, crispy-edged meat, green pepper, and eggs. If it’s edging close to noon, you can justify a sundae at the adjoining ice-cream shop. Monday 7:30 am to 9 pm, Tuesday through Thursday 7:30 am to 9:30 pm, Friday 7:30 am to 10 pm, Saturday 8:30 am to 10 pm, Sunday 8:30 am to 9 pm.
