Counter Cafe captures all the feel of an old-school diner, without ever feeling like some new-age restaurant trying to capitalize on nostalgia. Grab a seat at one of the barstools looking out across the large flat top and overhear your neighbors passionately discussing the latest Marvel movies over bottomless cups of coffee. 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.
