After sliding into a booth inside this restaurant, sister to the iconic diner car in downtown St. Paul, there is no reason to even crack a menu. Sure, there are plenty of items on those laminated, tri-fold pages, but to get a taste of the real deal, order America’s Favorite All-Day Meal. Eggs are made diner’s choice, prepped with stunningly precise consistency, alongside fat, fresh shredded potatoes cooked to a hard-crack exterior, plus two slices of toast and two bacon strips. Whether working off a late-night bar run or rising with the sun, the comforting simplicity of Mickey’s always delivers.
