My wife and I went to the Quaker Diner for breakfast for the first time last week. It was entirely serendipitous; we were driving to a different restaurant when this one caught our eye and we decided to take a chance. We walked in at 10:15 am and found ourselves in a crowded restaurant. I thought that odd, given that... More

I have been going here on and off for 20 years now. Way back food was a bit better but I think its slipped a bit to very basic diner food. No imagination here, just the basics basically prepared. So as long as you're not interested in some health focused offerings or something influenced from far away places, you shouldn't... More

We are regulars for breakfast. The food is fresh, quantities appropriate and the prices good. My husband always asks for grilled onions in his home fries and they are yummy. Marilyn and Michelle are the nicest waitresses around. Don't miss it!

I'm a diner lover, a roadtripper , an explorer, a NYCer and a Greek so this place rates high on my list. Looks can be deceiving here. From the outside, a nondescript, really small brick building. On the inside a time warp. I could barely concentrate on the menu because I was scanning every inch of the room. Fascinating. Odds... More

Eggs were perfectly poached. Corn beef hash wasn't good. Pancakes weren't cooked all the way - batter still in the middle. Cheap prices. Service was ok. No credit card.

I visit at least once a week and always have eggs, home fries and toast. Coffee is delicious and service is top notch. Bring cash, no credit cards. For lunch, patty melt, chicken philly or open-faced turkey dinner. Prices are right on and atmosphere is classic diner with cool stuff all around.

I just stopped in today with my wife for my first visit here. She stopped in last week for her first visit. It was just a great place to go to. As we walked through the door the waitress that took care of my wife last week greeted her like an old friend and asked about our son. This nice... More
