Lester's Diner

I have eaten at Lester's since the 70's on hwy 84. This one is nearest to my home, of the three. I had breakfast: scrambled eggs, home fries, orange juice, rye toast, coffee. The service was fine, so was the food. My coffee was cold. She tried, but it never got above warm.

Lester's is great for breakfast as far as I'm concerned. I had scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns...just what I was hungry for! My server was very attentive...stopped by my table at least 3 times to check.

I like to visit restaurants at least twice before deciding that I will never return. My husband, daughter, and I went a few months ago (our first visit). We had spinach pies and the food was okay, but nothing great. The server we had (and I don't remember name) was very nice and replaced the meal after the busboy threw... More

I was raised in Greek diners and got to appreciate what a really good one can be. This place misses at so many levels that it's sad. Florida can't seem really support a good diner.

I was told I couldn't visit Margate without going to Lester's Diner. We had lunch there last Friday, before heading back to the frozen tundra that is Connecticut this winter. Although they advertise themselves as "home of the 14oz coffee cup", the coffee arrived in a standard mug. When we asked about it, the waitress said they had a limited... More

If you want hit or miss diner food then Lester`s is for you. My favorite is the blueberry pancakes. You can't go wrong with breakfast. My go to meal is matzo ball soup and a chicken salad sandwich

A Florida landmark as Lester's has been around for a long time. Very friendly. Food - basic diner fare. If you are looking for a place which will make you feel at home, go to Lesters.

My mother and I were driving by and decided to stop in for lunch. We had the salmon and the spinach & feta stuffed tilapia. Both were excellent. Prices are a bit high, but the portions were huge. The deserts were terrific and gigantic (we had a chocolate eclair and a Napoleon). The waitress was really busy, so the service... More

Average diner fare, not too expensive but not cheap, service was great, place looks old and dingy. I do like that they have Pepsi on tap Lol.
