Best Breakfasts in 'The Lou'

Olivette Diner

Above the counter, there’s a framed copy of the 1974 album Flat as a Pancake by Metro East rockers Head East. The one-hit wonders (whose sole single was “Never Been Any Reason”) were photographed cramming pancakes here when it was known as the Rite-Way Diner. It’s all about the nostalgia—apropos for a joint that’s been around since 1958. The omelets, bacon and eggs, slingers, waffles, and pancakes are all solid, but it might just be the relentless Midwestern friendliness of the servers and cooks that keeps folks coming back. The photos of regulars on the walls and refusal to take credit cards complete the scene: This is a real diner with real breakfast for real people.
