Run by an amazing Greek family, John's is a great spot for breakfast and lunch. It's like a big family, with other patrons walking around pouring coffee for each other. Love it!

I've eaten at John's regularly since 1976! John and group will fix your food any way you want it. BLT on a bun instead of toast, no problem. Hamburger steak without the cooked onions but with the gravy, no problem. Club sandwich with only two...More
