Joe Junior is an old-school diner in Gramercy that’s perfect for when you don’t want to spend a lot of money, put on anything more complicated than sweatpants, or wait in line for breakfast. The space is small, with some tables and counter seats, and service is fast - so you’re here to eat eggs, a burger, or whatever your normal diner order is, then go about your day of running errands in the neighborhood and snooping around to see if you can find anyone’s lost key to Gramercy Park.
