American/New American, All-Day Breakfast

If La Medusa is Columbia City’s dining room and Tutta Bella its kitchen, Geraldine’s is its breakfast nook. Packed with families, clattering with action, and staffed with the kind of servers who stop and clap when a toddler does the Pancake Dance in the aisle—let’s just say this modern urban diner ain’t the place for an intimate talk, or, for that matter, any kind of talk at all. It is, however, a swell place for sour batard french toast, crispy hash browns, and divine coffee cake by morning, chili and hand-formed burgers by afternoon—from folks who value quality ingredients, in a sensational brick and windowed room that has become the warm soul of its neighborhood.
