Old City has a 24-hour diner

Steak-and-eggs at 4 a.m. in Old City? Now an option.

Steak-and-eggs at 4 a.m. in Old City?

Now an option.

It's between The Little Lion and the Best Western Plus Independence Park Hotel, across from the forthcoming Museum of the American Revolution. And the name is not exactly revolutionary, given Luca Sena's Revolution House nearby at Second and Market Streets (where the Snow White Diner used to be, across from the old Continental Diner).

The logo, showing a flag-waving, tricorn-hat-wearing patriot, has a certain clip-art charm.

Barra's bar is still there.

Menu (alas, not yet available online) is the size of a small city's phone book.

Breakfast is on from 5 to 11 a.m. with the usual (omelets and homefries starting at $8); lunch runs 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with soups, salads, wraps, panini, club sandwiches, and burgers (though they were out of burgers Tuesday); dinner is on from 5 to 11 p.m. (with an Italian-leaning menu - entrees in the teens); and late-night runs from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
