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

You don't expect gourmet food when you go to a diner. Nevertheless Mt. Hope has a friendly neighborhood atmosphere, plenty of variety and daily specials. What the food might lack in quality and sophistication is more than made up for in value. Even starving students and seniors can afford to eat here on a regular basis and enjoy a typical... More

We come here often. It is a casual neighborhood diner type restaurant, with reasonable prices and a good variety of selections on the menu. They have a list of specials each day. The food is always good, and there is a friendly atmosphere. I recommend Mt. Hope Diner for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

We ate breakfast at this small diner on a weekday morning. I ordered Eggs Benedict which were really less than average. The sauce was gummy thick and the muffins were overtoasted. My husband had a more traditional combination omelet with home fries. The omelet was average, but the fries were dry and not very appealing.

went for Sunday morning breakfast, diner was very busy but food was coming out in a very reasonable amount of time, food was great and wait staff were very pleasant and organized. I highly recommend this diner, there is a reason they are so busy!

The food is always great. The staff is friendly and efficient. Sometimes parking is packed, but worth waiting for a spot! The owner is friendly and truly concerned that you enjoy your experience.

Nothing spectacular, just good food at a good price. Breakfast is served all day. Burgers are decent. Soups for the most part are mediocre.
