Let me start out be saying I am not really a diner person. I have two brothers-in-law that would both go out of there for a good greasy spoon, but that is not me. So, it took me a while to find some things that I like at Johnny's aside from their breakfast items (which are out of this world).
So, for breakfast (served all day), the French toast is amazing, the pancakes are pretty good and the variety of omelettes is more than sufficient. The hidden gems on the menu for breakfast are the porridge, which is outstanding and too much for one meal (but reheats really nicely for a leftover) and the Waverley, my new favorite. It is two eggs any style on potato latkes with lox and sour cream. It is out-of-this-world and I even had my husband take me there for my most recent birthday breakfast.
For lunch or dinner, I have discovered a grilled salmon dish on a salad with red bliss potatoes that I really enjoy.
Service is pretty good and the place is always bustling with energy. If there are no tables, you can also snag a spot at the counter.
