Just a good comfort food

I needed a good place to have a breakfast meeting this morning. Found the Mt. Hope Dinner on a recommendation from a friend. I found this to be a clean well kept family dinner. I was waited on promptly with hot coffee and a a fairly broad menu. I ordered their 2-2-2 special. My eggs were cooked... read more

We walked I to a nice clean Restraunt and sat down. The waitress was very prompt and cheerful. 2 if our group order the soup and it was good. Then order Quiche and it was dry and tasteless. The sausage was burned on the top hard to cut and eat. So they ordered a burger and the other person had... More

I have eaten here several times, it is always good. Typical type of diner with regulars that are known by all of the staff. Can't beat the prices for their dinner specials, most come with soup or salad. Soup selections are limited but every one I have had has been delicious. Sandwiches are great also. Service is friendly, usually very... More

My wife and I have been here several times from our trips from Syracuse, and can't imagine a better diner than here. Their Cuban sandwich is excellent, I've had it twice, just as good as Miami, never left this palce hungry or unhappy.

Went for breakfast and was pleased with the staff, food, decor and price. This is a neighborhood eatery that has been in business for at least 30 years. Do not be surprised to locals gathered here as well as college students and staff from the local hospital. The pictures on walls show celebs, some local and others who the owners... More

We found this place on a list of nearby eateries recommended by our hotel. We went for breakfast and were positioned at a side wall table. As the center filled up we were disappointed that it was obviously the regular meeting place for lots of construction workers. In no time the language was rather ripe which in my local home... More

We like the food, the price, the service & the location. We enjoyed a wonderful fresh, fast breakfast. I was stuffed with their Eggs Benedict. I don't recall what my wife had, although the hot sauce that she requested for her home fries was spectacular! Told my older children about this classic in Rochester too...

Rochester's Mount Hope Diner is one of a fast-disappearing breed of neighborhood eateries. We always try to make it a point to have breakfast or lunch here on our frequent trips to Rochester. Popular--so I have it on good authority--with students at neighboring universities, the food here is reasonably priced, well prepared diner food. The burgers and fries are great,... More

Came here with family to enjoy a nice lunch. The waitress was prompt and accurate. The food was perfect to order, and the atmosphere is like that of a little family restaurant. Will return again. Also I am adding the first photo for this restaurant :-)

THis is a neat little diner across from a theater in downtown Rochester. Their burgers and fries are tasty, and they are packed on a Sunday morning for breakfast. But best of all, they make milkshakes in so many flavors you'll have a hard time deciding on what one you want! Remember those old metal milkshake containers that were so... More
