The original Tom’s is a old-school diner in Prospect Heights, and it’s mostly known for its brunch. But at the Coney Island location, you can drink a frozen margarita on a second-story rooftop overlooking the boardwalk. There’s also a big dining room where you can get many different varieties of pancakes, or a burger or wrap for lunch. The food isn’t anything fancy, but this a nice place to sit for a few minutes while you eat something with a side of fries, and there’s a small patio out front where you can sit and look out on the beach.
