Some of us have food allergies. Found this diner menu had vegan and GF selections. When we arrived for breakfast, we were immediately seated and an extremely pleasant waiter (Fazal) arrived to get us coffee / tea. We received our hot food within an adequate timeframe. All were VERY pleased with their selections. With great and friendly service as well... More

Looks like a revived 50's diner but the menu is totally modern with numerous vegetarian and gluten free options. The quinoa pancakes were wonderful. Perfect portion size. My only complaint is slow to refill coffee, otherwise we loved it.

For years now, my ex and I have met at the Greenbelt Silver Diner for breakfast every Monday or Tuesday that I'm in town. They've had their ups and downs as personnel have changed in the kitchen. Today, the cook was one of the better ones: scrambled eggs moist but thoroughly cooked (I.e. Not turned to leather), hash browns still... More

I'm from Ohio, but have eaten here 3 times. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. Service is consistently good, friendly and attentive. I love the 1930s Art Deco decor.

Lively diner atmosphere with real-time working tabletop juke boxes. Food selection is wide including veggie, vegan, and gluten-free options. Best tasting deal is the milkshakes.

Much upgraded from the last time I was here a decade ago. Clean, good service, above average breakfast food. Very good gluten free options, well above the usual options for people with celiac.

Who knew this diner right in my back yard was this tasty! I've been a few time now only just discovering it late last year. Tasty, wholesome, organic, local, and affordable. The last time I went was for brunch and they do have mimosa's folks! Along with a beer and wine selection but no full bar. I haven't had a... More

The staff was excellent and the food was okay, but we visited on a Saturday afternoon. The crowd was out the door, and it took more than an hour to get our meal once we placed our orders.
