Philippe The Original
Dating back to 1908, Philippe The Original is believed to be one the oldest restaurants in the area and enjoys around 25,000 customers every week. Best known for their French dip sandwiches, which have been on the menu since 1918. Early risers will be pleased to know that breakfast is served from 06:00 every day of the year, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The restaurant has a traditional feel about it and features something that is practically extinct these days: sawdust on the floor!
