Stopped in here last night with a couple BA buddies for dinner.

Typical diner look and feel. Tap handles and chalkboards with beer specials are the only clue that it's more than a typical greasy spoon.

The beer list is pretty solid. Not and amazing tap list but the bottle list is quite long. I come here for the food mostly. It just so happens that I can enjoy a top tier craft brew with my entree. Speaking of the food. It is top notch. Homestyle comfort food any grandma would be proud of.

Service is always a touch slow but nothing I can't overlook.

Overall a great place for down home cooking served with a great beer.

Checked into the Comet Cafe after a stop next door at Bullseye Records, on a recommendation from the folks at Green Gallery.

Total doppelgΓ€nger interior, night/day setup of a bar half and a diner half. Scratches both itches I guess, or appeals to different crowds. On the bar side, brown naugahyde booths are along the wall, under wildlife scenes of geese and beavers. Narrow chairs at the bar with a flatscreen or two, even with these modern touches, it still felt like something out of Ghost World or Twin Peaks. A handsome tap tower held gems like NG unplugged Cranbic, FFF Broodoo, La Chouffe, He'Brew 13th, and a couple others. Bottle list was very extensive, even including a traditional lambic, Hanssens Oude Gueuze, and Jolly Pumpkin Fuego (listed as Autumnal Fire).

Service was attentive, it seemed like there was a shift change going on with several staff members around. One surly guy was cutting fruit/etc. in front of us, occasionally cursing someone late on the next shift. Oh well, the beer was good, and so was our bartender. Large hipster contingent in this area, as identified by earlier reviews...
