Monty's does the nouveau diner proud. It's a popular neighborhood gathering spot, packing 'em in from breakfasts to the Friday fish fry. It serves breakfast all day -- like a diner should. More unusually, it has great and plentiful vegetarian and some vegan options. It's also the place to go for pie.
