You will not find credit card readers here. You will not find un-sticky menus. And you will not want it any other way. Golden House is a breakfast spot in the center of Uptown with more glittery vinyl seating and free coffee refills than you’ll know what to do with. The menu is standard diner food - you know exactly what these short stacks will taste like, and that’s what makes it a reliable spot. Head here before a show at the Riv or a day at the beach, choose between a booth or the counter seats, and eat your fill for under $10.
