My husband and I ate at Lester's the morning that we arrived off a red-eye flight from San Francisco. The food was hot, delicious and the portions were large. We had pork chops w/eggs, and a traditional Spanish omelette.

What an awesome stop on our way to the cruise line. This place was recommended by the cab driver, and it was a great choice. Great coffee and breakfast, local information, and friendly staff. It was a wonderful way to start the day.

Great neon sign out front advertises an authentic diner. The breakfast choices ranged from typical (country fried steak, scrambled eggs and hash browns) to unusual (gyro meat with taziki sauce, grits, and scrambled eggs). Some of the food was piping hot and delicious. Unfortunately some...More

I believe they could seat you at one of the corner booths. Your luggage could sit on the bench-seat. I think if it was set in the isle way, it would be an issue. Happy travels!
