THERE ARE MUCH FRIENDLIER DINERS – Stay away from this place. Especially if you want to enjoy a meal without the owner/manager hounding you to hurry up and finish your meal so he can seat another party. I was a woman by myself, had ordered a full lunch and was finishing my tea when this nasty man decided I had been there long enough. I was there under an hour. The other diners around me were shocked as was the wait staff by their boss's rudeness. Apparently he acts like this all the time. He's all about the $$ and not courtesy. BEWARE!!
Best early AM diner for foodies – Doesn't matter where about town I am I always end the night/start the day at Cosmic. They have a great selection of creative and gourmet omelettes ( my favorite is the California omelette with avocado) and the waffles are perfect every time (crispy on the outside and moist on the inside). The service is prompt and the food is ready quickly which is crucial to hungry/drunk people at 5 am. Lastly, the place is very clean and the staff are friendly people who seem to take pride in thier work (we usual have the same waitor, an older hispanic gentleman, who loves to give recommendations). It's hard to find good quality food that is both tasty and healthy (or naughty: the pies are awesome, too!) at ungodly hours of the morning but Cosmic seems to always deliver.
Very cool for a diner! – The food selection was great, big portions and moderately priced. The service was great and it's an awesome location.
Cosmically Weird and Spendy – I'll give it to Cosmic for the pros: solid space, good portions, and open 24 hours. The bad: pricey diner food, pretentious (almost apathetic) service, subpar food, and funky decor. It was an experience I'm not likely to duplicate as the service was the worst.
