If you’ve ever driven down Lombard St. and wondered what the random crowd was for, now you know. It was for Home Plate. This old-school diner is very, very good and not full of succulents and wall hangings and kale for you to take pictures of. It is full of delicious omelets, free homemade scones you will devour (maybe less because they’re good and more because they’re free), and very good salmon bagels. When you need tasty things you can eat in your baggiest sweatpants, this is the place.
