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.

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

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.
