Byways is best enjoyed when your head is pounding and you need some food to devour as you try to remember what all happened last night. The travel-themed decor and ample bar seating is classic diner grunge. The “sunrise special” ($7.95) consists of eggs, bacon and pancakes, and will result in a textbook post-brunch coma. As greasy and debilitating as breakfast can be, the sandwiches ($5.65-$9.50) aren’t anything to write home about. Byways is a comfortable dive in the midst of the posh Pearl District.
