The Ham Shoppe
We love this downtown greasy spoon, and not only because it’s right around the corner. The food is reliable, but it’s also a great place for people-watching. Hard by the courts, it’s a hub of activity around breakfast and lunch, with jurors, lawyers, cops and witnesses gorging themselves on hearty diner fare: chicken pitas, philly steaks, turkey melts, anything that sits heavy in the hamper. Closes at 3 p.m.
