…I might have had this morning. At least, best per-dollar, with the awesomest staff: the Coney Island.
“On April 10th, 1921 Gus Saites, a Greek immigrant, had a few hundred dollars and an idea. He would head to Duluth from St. Paul and open a restaurant on East Superior Street in the bustling town of Duluth Minnesota. Nearly 90 years later this idea continues uninterrupted in the same location and under the same tin ceiling as on that spring day in ’21.”
I had the veggie omelet; Kate had the french toast, and we both enjoyed the cook/waiter’s company; he was friendly and outgoing to some newbies. And we ate like kings for $5 each.
I’ve never been there in daylight before; it’s a gem of downtown. And 90 years? Wow!
