Hey Downtown Diner: You LOOK like you serve breakfast all day but lo, you stop at 11AM on the weekdays like people are beating down your door for lame lunch. And your servers get weirdly happy telling their customers this, too. Approaching us right away at the counter to bark, "We stopped serving breakfast!" Me: "What? Already?" Fat Bitchy Waitress: "Uh, yeah, at 11! It's after 11! (It was 11:15). Not everyone works 9-5 with weekends off. Portlanders like to go out the night before on weekdays, we're not the burbs, and leisurely wake up to a greasy spoon eatery. Why not just make all day breakfast, everyday? Duh. More $$ for you, more guests happy. We walked out. And we think you're really dumb.
