6. John’s Coffee and Donut

John’s on 481 Myrtle Avenue is yet another Clinton Hill establishment that, similar to Mike’s Coffee Shop, is an outrageous bargain. For $3.50, you can get a breakfast platter consisting of meat & potatoes, toast, and two eggs of any style. Comparatively, this kind of bang for your buck brings you back to the good old days of the neighborhood luncheonette of the fifties and sixties in a way that a vintage decor never could.
