901 27th Ave S., Mpls. Riverside.
2700 E. Lake St., Mpls. Longfellow.
6 a.m. to midnight, Mon.-Sun.
As low as just coffee, as high as $11.
Portions not as big as they are at Perkins, but same prices.
Best time to go?
Celebrating a big volleyball win with your daughter
Killing time before an appointment, or maybe just killing time
Excellent: They pour you a cup and leave you a carafe, even if you’re the only one at your table drinking coffee at 11 p.m.
Poor: No carafes to be seen, even if everyone at your table is drinking coffee. Wait staff refills, and you know how that goes.
Most likely outfitted by:
“Well that hit the spot! I’m ready for my nap.”
Desperate grumblings for a Moon Over My Hammy’s
Not bad: the Fit Favorites are under 600 calories, and you can get multigrain pancakes.
Items may appear greener on the menu than they actually are. You’re better off going on a “cheat day.”
Best looking breakfast:
Steak medallion and eggs: Wholesome and expensive, compared to the rest of the menu.
Peanut butter cup pancakes: “breakfast at night” and “candy for breakfast” are two lines we feel very comfortable crossing.
Worst looking breakfast:
All of the biscuit platters, which come doused in a peppered gravy and cheddar cheese
Philly cheesesteak omelette. Kind of speaks for itself, right?
Kid’s night, Tuesday and Saturday, 4-10 p.m.
None. But, in a way, every night at Denny’s is special.
None posted on computer paper anywhere
No splitting checks after 10 p.m. No public restrooms.
It’s like Thanksgiving, minus your family.
It’s like the doctor’s waiting room with faint traces of a 1950’s diner.
