John's Grill, San Francisco

He [Sam Spade] went to John's Grill, asked the waiter to hurry his order of chops, baked potato, sliced tomatoes and was smoking a cigarette with his coffee when a thickset youngish man with a plaid cap set askew above pale eyes and a tough cheery face came into the Grill and to his table.

Samuel Dashiell Hammett [The Maltese Falcon, 1930]
