Jimmy’s Diner isn’t the sort of brunch spot where everyone already looks dressed for a big night out. It’s the place all those people go the next morning. This cash-only diner has a long menu with lunch options like burgers and disco fries, but you should focus on the breakfast dishes, like the giant breakfast burrito or the egg and pancake platter that comes with cornbread, grits, and bacon. If it’s one of those mornings when food on its own isn’t enough to cure your feeling of general brokenness, try a boozy milkshake, like the one with maple, vanilla, and bourbon.
