A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of griddle-coddled breakfast eats, burgers, and more at Zodiac Dinor. Open at 7 a.m. on most mornings, and 8 a.m. on Sundays, Zodiac beats eggs, bacon, breads, and more into creative, hearty breakfast and noontime nosh. Breakfast options include a belgian waffle ($3.99) or piled-high pancake stack ($4.99). Their Southern Cross dish—a skillet filled with sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, ham, mixed cheeses, eggs, and Cajun seasoning—contains everything good about the morning except waking to find that you've sleep-eaten a whole turkey ($6.99). Come in for a lunchtime patty melt ($5.75) or BLT ($6.25) and let Zodiac's eclectic retro atmosphere sate midday desires for bright blue walls, vintage neon signs, and kitchen kitsch.
