While visiting daughter looked for a place for breakfast but found it no longer open for business. So we went over to The Nifty 50's Dinner just up the street.

I loved looking at the old car photos on the walls. The breakfast was very good, friendly staff. But bathrooms need a deep cleaning.

Had breakfast here one of our mornings staying in Seaside because it was close to our motel. The food was good, nothing outstanding but a decent meal. What made this a very good place was the service. The man that waited on us was friendly and we noticed that he seemed to know the regulars and chatted them all up... More

I had the club sandwich. It was really good. The garlic fries are good too. Bring stuff for the kids, as there are no crayons ect. It is a great little diner.

City Diner isn't new, fancy, or recently discovered by an "in" crowd, but it's a reliable choice for a good quality, generous breakfast or lunch. And on most meals, if you're so inclined, you can enjoy a wonderfully light and flavorful biscuit instead of toast or bread.

I go to City Diner at least once a week. What I like about City Diner is the food is very good, and you are served quickly, even when it is packed on the weekends. Of all the breakfast and lunch places in Monterey, I highly recommend City Diner because of he huge selection of meals.
