While it may not have the same tightly packed intimacy of the (now closed) original location, the campus-area outpost of Counter Cafe serves up the same great menu of classic diner fare, in a bigger, more modern dining room. It's only open for breakfast and lunch, so plan to start your morning here with a plate of crab cake benedict or an order of hot cakes bigger than your face. There’s also a patio out front where you can grab a seat on one of the pickle-green picnic tables when the weather is nice.
