  • Mike's City Diner
    Mike’s City Diner During its 17 years in business, Mike’s City Diner has been visited by dignitaries such as Bill Clinton and personalities such as Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives host Guy Fieri. But Mike's owes its initial fame to the blue-collar types who flocked to the diner in its earliest days. Back then, the South End neighborhood was still up-and-coming, and the construction crews that gave the neighborhood its facelift soon became loyal patrons of this breakfast and lunch spot thanks to the heaping portions of homey fare, made entirely from scratch. As South End transitioned, so did Mike's clientele, bringing in the college students, taxi drivers, and families who have made this spot a Boston institution. That made-from-scratch philosophy extends to nearly every ingredient at Mike's from the down-home breakfast dishes––the kitchen cracks as many as 6,000 real eggs each weekend––to the pastrami, which they smoke themselves. The most famous dish, however, is the turkey dinner. Fresh turkeys are roasted in-house every day, then served with all the traditional Thanksgiving fixin's such as homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, creamed candy corn, and a vegetable. And the cooking isn't the only thing contributing to Mike's old-fashioned vibe: a recent renovation unveiled a vintage art-deco inspired interior, complete with a vinyl textured ceiling, chrome-rimmed tables, and red barstools, perfect for perching over a bottomless cup of coffee.
