A basket of Irish brown bread is set on each table at this American diner-style restaurant where Emerald Isle touches abound (dig the servers’ lilting accents). The broad menu includes comfort fare like BLTs, turkey dinners, and burgers plus Irish-accented dishes such as shepherd’s pie, traditional Irish breakfasts, boiled bacon and cabbage, and sandwiches served on wheat soda bread.
Open every day 6 am to midnight.

Best Irish Breakfast (2011)
For those missing a bit of authentic Emerald Isle comfort fare, there’s nothing better than ordering an oversized Irish breakfast platter: two eggs with Irish bacon, sausage, black-and-white pudding, and grilled tomato ($8.95) with a side of Irish soda bread. Eileen’s Country Kitchen is your classic Gaelic diner, complete with long hours (6 am to midnight), the gentle brogues of the many waitresses that hail from across the pond, and the joy in knowing that breakfast is always available.
