Tastiest Place to Be Yelled At by a Scottish Chef 

Meal Ticket

This dainty little diner looks like a coffeehouse or a small-town cafe on the outside, but its fare is prepared by an irascible Scotsman with a talent for spicing up tired old lunch selections like hamburgers and sandwiches. With a fabulous breakfast menu, and an unhurried atmosphere, this is a terrific spot to settle in on a Sunday morning. But be careful what you order: If your party is dull and orders six stacks of pancakes, or the same damn burger all around, you might just invoke the ire of the chef, who has no problem with coming out of the kitchen to demand that his patrons make more-challenging menu selections. Evidently he gets bored flipping hamburger patties all day long, and he truly enjoys building a meal that will tax his creative juices.
