Went here for breakfast and we were not disappointed. The staff made the visit even more fun with a little bit of banter. Value pricing. Great value. We will be back. Cudos to the folks that run this restaurant.

This restaurant is a landmark in Geneva, but it was our first time there. It's not too big, so you may have to wait a little on the weekends. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. I had a Mediterranean omelette and my husband had eggs benedict. Large portions with sides of hash browns (or fruit) and toast... More

Great little breakfast spot. Both counter and table service. Large menu with good-sized portions. Highly recommend omelets, although everything is very tasty and with reasonable prices.

This is a very small café but the food is worth the wait. It takes you back to the old time diners and we loved it. The staff is the most friendly I have ever seen. The food is delicious and they even have Gluten Free choices. Next time you're in the area make sure to stop in for breakfast.... More

My middle school aged daughter and I stopped in for breakfast. Having been to many other local restaurants for breakfast, we were looking for a more laid-back diner experience. Geneva Diner is just the place for the relaxed diner feel. The restaurant is fairly small with counter seating on stools, as well as several tables and booths. We loved the... More

We stopped in late morning on a Sunday. The wait wasn't bad considering day and time. Breakfast food was typical diner fare but very good! I recommend for families, couples, etc. I would go back!

A Sunday morning breakfast in this popular destination is worth waiting for! Very friendly staff got us seated and poured coffee while we looked at the long menu…decided on cinnamon raisin French toast and an omelette. The food arrived quickly piping hot and really good.

OK, this place is just what you'd imagine...a typical American diner! I love it! It's cheap and cheerful, and I happen to really like cheap and cheerful. The food is nothing to write home about, but it is satisfying. It's a favorite with the locals, and everyone seems to know everyone else. It is open for breakfast and lunch only.
