Old time gay diner
This place is a throwback. When it was renovated a while back, it just got even more kitchy. While the food is ordinary (with the exceptions of the waffles), the helpings are generous and so is the staff and the crowd. For years, Trio has gotten away with an ordinary menu based on location and the smiles. It's packed on the weekends, and get there early for Sunday brunch to get a table in the covered patio right on 17th Street.
