I have been here several times over the years. I'd have to say that it used to be much better than it is now. The retro decor is neat and the atmosphere is kind of fun. The food however, is quite pricey for what you get and compared to other breakfast spots. The coffee is good and the menu varied.... More

Get the 50's feel in a very good restaurant. Careful-- servings are big. Burgers are very good, our grandchildren loved the mac and cheese,and most other dishes are fine. DON'T GO AT LUNCH TIME -- your will wait much too long to get in. Ditto Sunday brunch. Service was so so, but they are trying. Just put your persnickety button... More

I have gone for breakfast and lunch here - and had breakfast both times! Love the pancakes and definitely the baked beans. The bonus is having a gelato next door on the way out - irresistible!

This is a great diner with a cool atmosphere and fantastic coffee. Been a few times and it's always busy but I can understand why. The coffee is superb. Try the chocolate French toast or the fried oatmeal!

Snap back to the wonderful old dishes your mother used to make...just good old fashioned comfort food at affordable prices, large portions, all in an enjoyable venue that is reminiscent of those times gone past. Well worth the trip ...and don't be put off by the rather blasé exterior!

Diner Deluxe is a great place with great food and service. Often use it for morning breakfast meetings if there's no more than four of us, any more and it's really not productive. We can sit around a stylish kitchen table that I'm sure is from the 50's and feel like we're sitting at home, only someone else cooks, cleans... More

The wait is getting to be too long...however their food is always worth the wait. What a neat little place ...the 60s vibe is casual but fun. The food is great.

Diner Deluxe has a 60's vibe with the arborite covered tables and old style chairs. The restaurant itself is quite small and often there is a line-up to get in. Recently meeting a business colleague for lunch we waited 10 minutes or so to get a table. The service was attentive and efficient. The meals were what we ordered and... More

Was not a very busy time for a "Diner style" rest., but the food was ok. Service was pretty disorganized, and we waited far too long until someone actually served us.
