The Salt Peanut Cake with rich butter cream, peanut butter and salty, crunchy potato chips beats the Maple Bacon Doughnut any day.

The BLTs come with arugula; the hash is made with spicy pulled pork instead of canned corned beef; and all the toast, including the cinnamon-dusted Nickel Bag, is made with bread baked fresh in-house!

Nickel Diner bakes its own bread, prepares elaborate cakes and maple-bacon doughnuts and makes delicious fried catfish with corn cakes. Dont miss the Lowrider Burger.

Order the BLTA - crisp bacon, earthy, crunchy green arugula. A ripe, ruby red tomato and half an avocado, with a fried egg on crunchy sourdough toast. The yolk adds a creamy, velvety richness.

This is the place. There is no place quite like this place anywhere near this place. So this must be the place.
