Open since 1948, Cindy’s is a local landmark where the atmosphere is better than food itself. That’s not to say the food at this retro diner is bad, it’s just that the atmosphere is f*cking magical. There’s a long linoleum bar facing the kitchen where locals congregate to eat omelettes and grumble about the traffic, and no matter what time of day you come, the big orange booths will be filled with groups of little old ladies eating carrot cake and doing crosswords together. Cindy’s has also been the backdrop for countless movies and TV shows, ranging from Surviving Christmas to Parenthood, making it a great spot to impress out-of-towners.
