Power breakfasts and socialite lunches.. The Scene Tucked into the back end of Schneithorst's Bavarian building is this all-American diner. In the morning, the parking lot is filled with BMWs, Mercedes and the occasional Jag. Inside, the drivers of these rigs hold powwows over coffee, omelets, oatmeal and Danishes, cell phones in hand and calendars spread out on the table. Things calm down after 10am or so, and the frenetic tension dissipates. Next come the ladies who lunch and folks needing a bite before or after the show at the Plaza Frontenac cinema across the street. On warm spring and summer evenings, rooftop dining is a bonus.
The Food Bacon is crisp, and the hash browns taste real, not prefab. Biscuits and gravy are pretty darn good. The gigantic Cobb salad is more than a meal, and at dinner, given the Kaffee Haus' German heritage, pork is a mainstay: bratwurst, knackwurst and a jumbo grilled frankfurter with German mustard. The burger is nothing special, but other grilled sandwiches--grilled cheese with bacon or the Swinger sandwich--are noteworthy.
