Holy Ole’s!

If you’re an East Coast transplant living in California, then you’ve probably lamented the lack of greasy spoon diners in the Bay Area (no, Mel’s, IHOP, and Denny’s don’t count, though they are the greasiest).  Well, guess what?  Ole’s Waffle Shop in Alameda is here to fill the gap (with
