Bert’s Restaurant (CLOSED)

Update 02/05/12: Bert’s is now closed.
Bert’s Restaurant is about history. Having started over 60 years ago as a 24-hour coffee shop, it grew into a full-fledged restaurant in 1969. After Bert’s retirement, the restaurant was bought and run by a Greek family. They, too, have since retired and, more recently, Bert’s was taken over by a long-time customer. Though, I don’t believe much else has changed since 1969. There is something oddly comforting about the place. That in our rapidly changing times, there are still these anomalous places which remain untouched by modernity. An anchor to our own past.

The menu, the service, the decor are as straight-forward as you imagine. Go for good value bacon, eggs and coffee.
