Previous recommendations pretty much say it all. A small neighborhood eatery on a main thorofare, but if you blink you miss it. Parking is across the street to the right as being local, they don't have much. The friendliness is contagious and Dena greets the regulars lovingly. The breakfast food is the standard offerings, for Americans, try the pea bacon, thick slices, rather than small strips. They will accommodate dietary needs to a certain extent. The potatoes are delicious and every plate comes with several large sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes and an orange wedge, something you pay extra for elsewhere. It's a ways away from the Falls area, so you have to have transportation or take a cab or ride service. Chalk another local eatery to add to the list.

A favourite with the locals, you won't mind having to wait for a table at this tiny Diner. Repeat customers are greeted like old friends. Ample breakfast portions of Diner standards and delicious twists on old favourites. Try the Greek wrap!

If you love breakfast, this is the place. The dining room is tiny, and might seat 24...maybe! But the food is EXCELLENT, always perfectly prepared, with abundant portions! Service is fast and friendly....appears to be a family run operation! As a Niagara Falls local I can tell you that THIS place is the best breakfast in the city!!

I love the breakfasts and the friendly feel when I drop by. The food is top notch and the service excellent. I love the extras of mushrooms and fruit. I have never had a bad meal or experience. I could go to a fast food place but the quality at Dena's is far superior and the freshness is evident.
