"Upscale" diners might be the new trend, but this spot on Division, where stained-glass windows show signs of the building's former life as a funeral parlor, is decidedly old-school and zero-percent ironic about it. Like every real diner, you don't go here thinking the eggs and bacon are going to change your life. You go here because your coffee mug never will be empty, your waitress seems to care more about you than your mom ever did, and you've never known any place this no-frills to make its own cinnamon rolls.
