When it comes to getting yourself righteously torqued on coffee and protein in the wee hours of the morning (or any other time, for that matter), Bob’s is likely the cheapest and quickest option. There are a couple other all-night diners in the area, but they’re not really worth the drive or the expense: you can fill up at Bob’s for under five bucks, plus the cost of gas to get yourself across the river and a mile up Route 2 into Watervliet (actually, more like three-quarters of a mile; if you cross the railroad tracks, you’ve gone too far). Being a diner, Bob’s serves diner food, solid and respectable; no real surprises here, but isn’t that a good thing? Be warned, though: this place is hard core, and smoking is allowed at every table and at every stool. But then, if you were fussy about your health, you wouldn’t be eating fried eggs and bacon at 3:00 AM, would you?
