Jimmy T’s PlaceJimmy T’s Place is reminiscent of your classic New York City diner. It’s a total hole-in-the-wall, cash-only, sit-at-the-bar, breakfast-all-day kind of joint. It’s also both a Capitol Hill establishment and a secret to the rest of the city. This family-owned diner opened in 1969 and has remained mostly in its original state. Here you can get the basics prepared to perfection. The diner serves up tons of hot coffee, bacon, eggs, waffles, and toast; don’t expect anything fancy. But therein lies the beauty of this diner.

Jimmy T’s doesn’t have a website, so you’ll just have to come in and experience the moment.
