Mountain Lyon Cafe is the kind of place that has a "favorite of yours" on the menu that you "always get," like the over-the-top smothered breakfast burrito or the hearty chicken fried steak served in a cloud of white gravy. It is the type of breakfast diner that has the brown mugs for your coffee and the marmalade/grape jelly packet holder on the table next to the sugar. It's the kind of place that has regulars saddled up to the breakfast barstools and who, quite possibly, eat there every day. The kind of place that has a number of different hot sauces to try out, and commemorative shirts that you'd buy and actually wear (since you love the place that much). The staff is always friendly, and by serving generous portions and a variety of breakfast and lunch options, it has the hometown allegiance and, therefore, the authentic feeling that you simply can't fake.
