Not what it used to be

My husband and I used to eat here when he lived in White Plains in 2004. It was our go to place. The food was soo good and when my sisters would come visit we would always go because they fell in love with it too. That being said it is just not like it was back then. The service... read more

Regular dinner fare delivered with minimal flair. They are open 24hrs and was a god-send after a long trip.

The coffee served was fresh and hot, the waiting staff friendly and not pushing, they answered what the meal was about, actually one waiter knew the ingredients, how it was prepared. We had fried fish, very tasty and not greasy as you get in other places. We had time, even costumers came after and went before us, we just sat... More

This is the best diner in the area with superb friendly people working here. It's right next to Extended Stay America in Elmsford and they always deliver food to the hotel. The diner is off major highways, 87 and 287.

Stopped by for lunch with a few co workers and we were seated right away and the service was good. Very good diner food but if you want space ask for a table since the booths are very tight. The Executive diner is the better choice of the two.

This is a nice dinner, but it is a dinner. Service was good, prices were Westchester County high and the food was fine. We choose it because it was very close to our hotel. It has sufficient parking and is large enough ti handle a lot of people. We each had one of their very large cookies - and they... More

Extremely greasy food, when asked for a different plate I was treated terrible. Finally got the plate which was also cooked incorrectly. I payed for both plates and left the food. NEVER will I go back.

Broad menu selection (although I am on a mission to find the best Cream Chipped Beef on Toast--and they did not offer it.) Good mix of homemade and prepared ingredients. Good price point. Very engaging staff. Will return. Gave the waiter an extra cash tip beyond the standard 15%. I rarely do that for breakfast--he was that good.

The typical diner food but lately the prices have soared. I can't see paying $20 plus for an entree at a diner. $15 is my tops---it's a diner--I expect burgers and chicken cutlets, and all day breakfast. The service is OK---a bit gruff--you know, they throw down plates, etc. Let's face it, they are not highly trained servers. They take... More
