Geneva Diner is quite good. The atmosphere is nothing to be excited about, pretty dated, but the service is good and food is very good. If you are looking for pretty basic breakfast fare but tasty, come here. Haven't been for lunch, but looks good.

It is a diner, but everything tasted very good. The french toast I ordered was excellent quality and a medium portion size. The prices were awesome, and my party of three all ate lunch for less than $30. I would recommend this for anyone visiting...More
