Al Pardini operated a 24-hour diner there in the late 1950s. These days, Al's grandson, Jimmy Pardini, welcomes diners to the spot to enjoy a menu of wholesome American fare for breakfast and lunch. In the morning, chefs stuff omelets with veggies, drizzle hotcakes with maple syrup, and garnish french toast with felt berets. For lunch, Pardini's chefs prepare homestyle dishes such as grilled pork chops or chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. House-made soups simmer on the stovetop and sandwiches burst with italian deli meats or roast beef with balsamic caramelized onions.
