You want dinner theater? Plop your fanny down on one of Tiffany's dozen-plus vinyl-topped stools and eavesdrop on the regulars at this unapologetically greasy spoon, where the dinnerware's made of plastic, the jukebox is filled with Meat Loaf and Johnny Cash, and the menu contains exactly one item that costs more than $7 (that'd be the twelve-ounce T-bone with fries or two eggs for $10.95). While downing a breakfast platter (served anytime), hot cakes (no, not pancakes), country-fried steak, a piece of pie or a tuna melt, listen in as the locals go off about politics, game shows or the exorbitant price of a pair of work boots. Best of all, the show goes on 24/7.

Edward Hopper never ate at the Courtesy Diner. Hopper, of course, is the American artist whose painting Nighthawks has become the iconic image of the lonely, late-night diner. Its period details — the counterman in his crisp white uniform, the... More »
Tiffany's Original Diner is a true diner: A little greasy and a lot smoky, equipped with an old-school jukebox, it's got a long and narrow counter, vinyl-covered stools and only a couple of tables and chairs. The menu is the best kind of diner fare, with hotcakes and tuna melts and grilled-cheese galore, while the coffee is classic greasy spoon: strong enough to take the lining off your stomach. Unbending vegetarians be advised: The same grill that will cook your grilled-cheese is going to cook two pounds of bacon at a time, imparting to everything a delightful bacony flavor. Open, as all diners should be, 24/7.

This city has plenty of greasy spoons, but there is one destination that, ahem, takes the cake. Tiffany's Diner in Maplewood is a pint-size slice of deep-fried Americana. The diner is open 24/7 and the employees put on a show all day long. Here you are guaranteed a heaping helping of Attitude Problem from a beehive-headed waitress. (It's OK, a little acid will help you digest.) Aside from the coronary-inducing fried delights, nearly everything on the menu is blanketed with a few inches of... More »
The place: A 24-hour greasy spoon, so narrow it contains only a classic countertop with vinyl-topped stools to the left, and to the right, a pinball machine, a cigarette machine, a few video games and a poster of Johnny Cash flipping the bird. An old TV hangs from the ceiling, broadcasting game shows. The time: Friday, 12:45 p.m. The lunch rush -- that is, if a place like this could ever feel rushed. The characters: Jean, matronly despite her take-no-shit attitude, is the sole employee on... More »
The best jukebox in the area isn't the one with the best selection. Not much has changed about it since the diner it's housed in changed its name from Morgan's to Tiffany's. But as a soundtrack to the goings-on in the tiny, smoke- and grease-filled room it sits in, it's perfect -- Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" playing at a barely audible level, almost overwhelmed by the snaps and pops of the vinyl it was pressed onto. With plenty of classic country & western, as well as random... More »
