Middle Child

If a diner and a trendy Australian cafe had a baby, it would be Middle Child. It has the very casual vibe of a diner, but likely the same interior designer we imagine comes to the United States just to laugh at us for paying her to put subway tile on restaurant walls and call it “Australian.”

Either way, Middle Child has some of the best breakfast sandwiches around, and you’ll probably wait at least 30 minutes one on the weekend. It ’s also a popular spot for Jefferson doctors and med students during the week, so if you want to grab a phoagie (an eggplant sandwich with avocado, bean sprouts, and something called pho sauce that we’d eat on anything), you’re going to need to time your visit for right before their shift change.
