Like any good diner, North End Caffe has a very large menu of similarly enormous sandwiches and salads. Also, they do way more than just pancakes and tuna melts. For breakfast, the huevos divorciados - eggs with fried corn tortillas, bacon, and two kinds of salsa - are your best bet. And for a filling lunch try the egg rolls stuffed with pork, cabbage, cured ham, and swiss cheese. Make sure you get a table on the sidewalk so you can watch surfers jaywalk with their boards across Highland Ave.
