J. Nichols Kitchen
First opened as a diner in 1974, J. Nichols is the kind of good-at-everything spot every neighborhood needs. After a substantial facelift a few years back, the space is more contemporary casual than coffee shop, but the food remains as dependable and consistent as ever. From pulled-pork pancakes with maple pecan butter to a selection of Benedicts and burgers that are surprisingly creative, J. Nichols is at its best during breakfast and brunch (expect to wait for a table during the latter), but you can find something good no matter the time of day.
