New York Diner

united states

Tiny trailer-sized New York Diner is wedged in between a gas station and a parking lot on busy Northern Boulevard, seemingly a leftover of another era. Walking in is definitely a bit like walking back in time, as the cliché goes. It's high gloss upholstery and curved lines are straight out of another time in the United States, and perfect for a cheap joint to grab a breakfast.


Everything is very high quality for the price, and the friendly owner treats everyone that walks in the door as family, with a greeting and constant attention and gratitude. The food arrives quickly and suits its purpose. The blueberry pancakes ($5.75) and 2 eggs with corned beef hash ($5.95) both were exactly what we were craving when we went in. All washed down by a tall glass of chocolate milk ($2), we paid and emerged back into the real world 60 years later.
