We try to recommend a diner in every city because they typically offer a big menu, affordable prices, and breakfast all day! At downtown Durham's Elmo's you'll find an array of hearty eats as well as plenty of options for lighter fare. The ambiance is more café-cool than retro diner. There are vinyl style booths and counter stools, but also exposed brick, high ceilings, and wood floors.
Breakfast offers all the favorites as well as oatmeal, build your own omelets (with yummy ingredients like salsa, spinach, feta, turkey sausage and mushrooms), along with a "heart smart" option meaning that egg white orders are no problem. The sides list is extensive and includes fruit, ham, cup of oatmeal, and bagels. For lunch/dinner healthy eaters may enjoy the hummus platter, homemade vegetarian chili, big spinach salad with grilled chicken, fresh catch of the day, or the veggie plate. Hearty options abound with choices like home-style roast beef, fajitas, bbq chicken plate, and big beef burgers. (There are also turkey and veggie burgers.)
