Melrose Diner - Philadelphia Pa.

It starts from the cake and I can't get to technical about because I don't know if the use pound cake or sheet cake! My guess is a butter pound cake that send down from angels while harps play and as the clouds open on the way down it iced with decadent heavenly Butter Cream as you hear a chorus of hallelujahs.
The diner has been serving since around 1935 and being in the heart of South Philly (looks left...looks right and whispers) might have served a member of the mob back in the day but who knows and who ever did know can't be found! Besides the cake Melrose Diner is a place that you can still get a home cooked meal with a home style portion of comfort food. Make sure that you save room for.......
