Looking for a sit down place for breakfast on way home from weekend getaway and came across the Malta Diner. Surprised to see it as busy as it was for a Monday morning and they were well staffed and efficient. Breakfast was delicious, I had the French toast deluxe with eggs, bacon, ham & sausage. My boyfriend had the pancakes... More

I love their Greek salad and husband enjoys either a burger and fries or an omelet. I have been busy with an ill pet and having a hectic schedule and by 4 pm I find I'd rather go out than cook this is my go to diner.

Don't expect more than a typical diner but the food was above average and the staff were super friendly. Extensive menu. We had Malta Diner special club. Great taste great idea (turkey club w Gyro meat substituted for the bacon in the club ). If your in the area go here!

The Malta Diner is a typical NY diner. We generally go for breakfast but I have been there for lunch as well. It's a busy place and the food is always fresh. Their omelets are cooked as ordered and the service is friendly. If you're looking for a good breakfast (as opposed to brunch) this won't disappoint.

Gave them three tries and each time there was something wrong. I have a feeling that the cook is the owner. First day my wife got French toast. I think the cook just passed the bread a couple of inches away from the egg mix. The "French toast" was just bread with a coating of egg on the surface. Terrible!... More

Gene, I'm sorry we couldn't make you happy. In response to your comments- the owner does not cook. Our French toast is our most popular griddle item, but I am wondering if you ordered the Old Fashioned French toast which is simply white bread quickly dipped in a cinnamon eggwash to-order. The regular (Challah) French toast, which is baked on... More

The place looks small but is rather roomy inside. The menu has a nice selection for everyone. I got a corned beef Reuben and it was AWESOME! I also got the stuffed pepper soup and it was full of flavor. Everyone else enjoyed their meals as well. I will be back!

I am very pleased that you were willing to give us another chance, and that we were able to turn around your initial opinion of the diner. We were definitely very busy but I am glad it didn't take us longer than 10 minutes to get you seated. I understand your apprehension but really do recommend that you try the... More
