If you want to start the day someplace very low-key, get breakfast at Pearl Diner. Between the swivel stools, booths with rips covered in duct tape, and regulars screaming across the room about their coffee and tuna fish sandwich to go, it feels like things probably haven’t changed much since this old-school diner opened more than 50 years ago. The huge menu ranges from omelettes and pancakes to triple decker sandwiches and shrimp marinara. If you come in the morning, try the big, fluffy Belgian waffles with eggs and bacon that costs about $8, and for lunch, get one of the more than 40 types of burgers, like the one with ideal proportions of ham, mushroom, and fried onions.
