Yay a veggie burger! I was surprised at how hard it was to find a veggie burger in NY, this diner had a real American feel, a very pleasant atmosphere with lovely friendly staff and the food was delicious and a really great price!

Ate at this diner on a Monday morning. The menu has every breakfast item you would want. We heard that the French toast with strawberries was amazing, but felt it was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Service was quick in this busy restaurant.

We just popped in to grab a quick bite to eat and something sweet. The pie here is not that great. Very dry and was stale. I had a banana split and that was pretty good. The service was slow and not many people there.

Got Banana pancakes with ice cream and a coffee! Service was fast and they refilled my coffee three times without even having to ask! Staff were friendly and chatted to me as a solo diner which is always nice! Would go back on a heartbeat.

We went 3 times for breakfast. Very extensive menu, everything we tried was very good (cakes, pancakes, French toast) and very very reasonably priced. Staff is pleasant and service is quick. Very few booths are tight, try to avoid those. No wifi.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Short stack of pancakes, bacon, maple syrup, corned beef hash and coffee around $12. Great value!
