There are only a handful of honest-to-goodness railcar diners in L.A. (the reopening of Phil's in North Hollywood this month means there's one more). But the term has come to embrace any convivial greasy spoon with hangover-busting sustenance and firecracker waitresses. A diner's counter has long been one of the few respites for solo eaters: It's a place to linger, whatever the time of day, with a newspaper, a cup of joe, and a slice of pie. A good diner should dole out comfort as liberally as it does gravy over biscuits--with a side of three eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns.

6333 W. 3rd St., L.A., 323-933-8446.

There's not a whole lot that's still original at the Original Farmers Market. Du-par's, however, has been slinging pies at 3rd and Fairfax for more than 70 years. The food at the charming landmark has slipped a tad since the old days, but we can't help feeling like a part of history when eating a mile-high slice of coconut cream in a shiny maroon banquette.
