I'm a sucker for a good diner. The food at the Midtown is the best diner food we've found in Center City, but it's your usual diner fare so it's not high class, obviously. In fact, the desserts should probably be avoided unless you're having the jello or the ice cream (their milkshakes are excellent). They make their soup fresh daily, and I've yet to find one that wasn't really good.
But the waitresses--what a great bunch! They see dozens of people every day, but I can go in there, and somehow, they remember me and make me feel welcome. I love the waitresses there because they're friendly, helpful, and they're real. A great place to go alone or with friends any time of day or night.
