Lost Lake Cafe isn’t the best diner in the city, but it does serve good breakfast, lunch, and dinner food 24 hours a day. It’s in what looks like a stone-lined living room from the ’60s, with big booths and a counter thrown in. If you want breakfast, order the corned beef hash or a breakfast sandwich on an English muffin. If you don’t, you can’t go wrong with their burger and fries.
