This classic diner in Clinton Hill is the perfect spot to grab some American breakfast. Like a diner should be, it’s cheap and classic. Mike & his brother have run the place for decades, and locals (including Biggie Smalls!) have dined at their counter over the years.
If you’re visiting from abroad and looking to give the Diner experience a try, grab a friend and slide into a booth at Mike’s… or go solo and plop yourself on a stool at the counter. Best for breakfast and a mug of hot coffee that the staff will make sure never empties.
Recommendations: Pancakes, sausage, eggs. You might need to head to the park for a nap after, diner food is HEAVY!
Cost: Hearty breakfast specials including coffee and small juice are around $7-9
Where: 328 DeKalb Ave (corner of St James Pl), Brooklyn - walk from Our Place in 12 minutes
