There is nothing like a good old fashioned American roadside diner to bring out the warm fuzzies in the most curmudgeonly among us. So if you're in the middle of the big city in the middle of the night and happen upon one, you may feel like you're dreaming. The South Street Diner on Kneeland Street is just such a place. Whether you're looking for some good comfort food at dinner time or a place to recharge your batteries after a night of clubbing, you'll feel right at home here. The South Street Diner is open all night every night - from 5 pm till 5 am. The diner features a regular dinner menu along with burgers, sandwiches, subs, wraps and some great breakfasts served all night long. Beer and wine are available and one of the specialties of the house is a "Desserts of the 50's" menu featuring sweets that might conjure up memories of Arnold's Drive-In on “Happy Days”. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food is good, and prices are very reasonable. The diner is located at 178 Kneeland Street, not far from South Station. Telephone: 617-350-0028.
