The Bad Waitress Diner and Coffee Shop

2 E. 26th St. Minneapolis, MN 55404

This winkingly divey diner makes customers do the ordering, but the food delivered by the perfectly competent waitstaff makes up for the inconvenience. The menu features well-executed spins on classic American fare including a robust breakfast selection that makes the Bad Waitress a perfect brunch or even pre-work spot to luxuriate in a big start to the day ahead. Retro movie posters and other vintage d├ęcor also make this a prime bring-the-kids (or bring-the-out-of-towners) location.

Capsule review:

A modern-day diner that serves breakfast all day - three-egg omelets, scrambles and pancakes - plus panini, soups and salads at lunch and dinner. (Rick Nelson, 9/29/2005)
