Malta diner reminds you of good food and old fashioned service. The food is always good and service is with a smile. Enjoy breakfast the way it should be.

We stopped in the Malta Diner for a business lunch yesterday. Great place. Very clean, very friendly. I ordered the Chicken Barley Soup, along with a nice plate. The soup was surprisingly good. Like one of the best I've ever had. Really deep taste, served very hot and it was well worth the stop. I would recommend the Malta Diner... More

Malta Diner is a sometime spot and I have found it to be a solid place to eat. It is a very typical Diner in every way. Good coffee and good food, just doesn't stand out like many of the other area establishments.

On our frequent trips to and from Vermont we almost always stop at the Malta Diner for breakfast. The service is always excellent and the food very good. It is well run, clean, modern and a pleasant atmosphere. A very enjoyable breakfast stop!!

The best chicken wings I've had in years. They were plump and juicy and well just fabulous. I've been back twice to take them home for the kids. I've also enjoyed the pork chops and they were top notch as well.

I came here for a breakfast meeting the other day after a long hiatus. The service was efficient but far from overbearing. The food was good and served quickly . I will go back again and the next visit will be sooner rather than later

When I have to be in Saratoga Springs early in the morning, I often stop here for breakfast. Every time the service has been very efficient and friendly, and the food has been terrific. Ham and eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast--I've had them all and have enjoyed them thoroughly. Plus, every time I've been here, the place is spotlessly clean.
