Combination of Williamsburg and Twin Peaks, solid coffee, good menu, service is curt and to the point. Food is great, fun to just sit and see the various types of people visiting as well.

I was surprised that we were going out to a diner for breakfast with my foodie friends, but we do as we are told. Well, there are booths and a campy motif, but the food is far above traditional diner fair. Locally sourced, fresh ingredients make old favorites more delicious and appealing. The Benedicts were just right. I had lunch... More

We stopped here on the way to Belleayre for breakfast, the food was amazing. The Interstate 77 Revisited Skillet was soooooo good. Staff was friendly and it was nice and comfortable inside. Definitely recommend!

Very crowded and noisy, but the food is good. Trout and meatloaf were very good. Chicken nuggets were a little burnt and spicy. Good place to visit when in the area. Nothing better around.

A no-nonsense foodie recently told me I had to give the Phoenicia Diner another chance, (under its new ownership). Fair enough. The last time I'd visited (at least a decade ago) the wife and I left without eating. The first thing I noticed was the friendly staff – which seated me even though my breakfast companion had not yet arrived.... More

Great food, beautifully restored 60s diner, very hipster crowd with occasional locals. This is a greet-and-seat place, often very crowded. Excellent management. Nouveau-diner menu. Alas, it is not an old undiscovered diner where you can get a slab of cherry pie and coffee for a few dollars, sit wherever you want, and look out the window for hours, but it... More

Every time we eat here the food is delicious. It is all locally sourced and so fresh. I love the old school diner decor and it is definitely a highlight of any Catskill trip.
