I need to get out of the house first thing in the morning and although I cooked for a living for many years, I much prefer to have my egg white omelettes made for me, and diet sodas poured while I am still parking the car. I love being a regular.

After living back in my home town in the Bay Area in CA for 10 years, my family (9 year old son, husband and ultimately 70+ year old mother) are moving to Arlington VA. To give an indication of what we're leaving, our current diner, where we go 5-6 days a week is having a going away party for us with all the regular customers, some of whome barely speak to each other, but all of us love sharing mornings in each others' company.

I am searching for a restaurant fairly close by that is open at least at 7 am, can produce consistent egg whites and will refill diet soda without judgement. If I can find one, I will be there 7 days a week!
Can you help me with recommendations?
So far, I suspect Metro 29 and the Silver Diner are going to be my first attempts, but that's only based on yelp, not Chowhounds' collective wisdom. (please don't pass judgement, kindness matters:)
Thanks to all!
