EDITORS TIPS

When to Go: Don't forget the Sunday brunch--served from 10am to 2pm--packed with steaming home-fried potatoes, an egg white, plain or cheddar topped scramble, mini Belgian waffles, Pecan Praline French Toast and more.

Save Money: Grunt's soup of the day (aka "temperature soup") is priced according to the temperature outside the restaurant at 11:15am. So if it's 20 degrees outside, the soup costs just 20 cents.

Fun Fact: Those old-school portraits you see on the walls aren't Hollywood stars, but staff. Each year the restaurant hosts a picture day.
