First things first: Silver Spoon serves chicken and waffles. So there you go. This old-fashioned family diner offers about a hundred breakfast items and around sixty for lunch and dinner. Of course, there’s no way they’ll all be good. (The spaghetti and meat sauce? Meh.) But while a great 24–7 diner still eludes us after the tragic closing of Honey’s (for a McDonald’s!), this friendly breakfast, chicken, and burgers joint, which operates from 7 a.m.–9 p.m. (and closes at 3 p.m. Sunday, after the churchgoer rush), will do just fine. Make sure you get your physician’s OK before you order a “skillet,” a big, cheesy, sizzling open-faced omelet.
