Review: Diner coffee is a thing of mystery and beauty. Mystery because you never know if it will be watery and weak or singed and strong. Beautiful because, along with the endless refills, the liquid is ever changing. An early refill throws off the balance of sugar and cream and you must treat the chemistry with a careful hand and keen eye. Will the hurried waitress tend to your empty reservoir, or is she too busy helping the other diners?
Regardless of the outcome of the coffee itself or the frequency of replenishment, the best thing about diner coffee is that it is always there.
Since Huck Finn’s is open 24 hours a day, this is especially true of the coffee at Huck Finn’s.
Oh, and in case you were wondering… It was weak today, but the waitress was on her game!
