La Bonbonniere

La Bonbonniere is the last of a dying diner breed in the city, where fancier, niche restaurants consistently encroach on the old-school mom-and-pop spots. La Bonbonniere has been a fixture in the neighborhood and most locals don't even know how long its been along this quasi-quiet strip of 8th Avenue. Inside, the diner menu is filled with no-nonsense, stick-to-your-ribs breakfasts. The decor leaves much to be considered, however the homey atmosphere, linoleum floor and shaky tables are all part of the charm.
