I know it's been a couple of years since Sophie's Busy Bee closed (used to be next to the el station at Damen/North/Milwaukee) but I'm struggling to find a place like that in the city. I was especially fond of their breakfasts, both the food and the eclectic clientele. Anyone know a place I can get good pierogis, two eggs sunnyside up with homemeade corned beef hash, served by a stern but nice enough 60 year-old waitress and enjoy the cops on one side and the guy talking to himself quietly on the other?

any ideas?
