Really didn't care for their breakfast. Service was slow and the food wasn't that good. Plenty of parking. A good fourth choice I guess if Waffle Shop and Ihop are too crowded but I probably would wait til lunch and go somewhere else.

The server didn`t give me my dinner roll that came with my meal. She dropped the coleslaw and did not replace it. My nephew knocked over his drink, she was kind enough to clean it up. She did not refill it. He had a kids meal with icecream. Guess what? He did not get his ice cream. Other than that... More

Nothing fancy, good food, resonable prices and awesome sticky buns. Atmosphere is casual the students love the place, as I am sure you will see why.

On a recent trip to Penn State decided to have breakfast at what used to be a great diner. Had to wait in line for over ten minutes, even though there was no one in front of us and there were empty tables. Service was terrible! The scrambled eggs and the toast were cold. Used to recommend this place, but... More

Nice diner, good service and excellent breakfast. Eggs cooked just as requested, crispy corned beef hash, nice ham steak and well cooked home fries. All in all a good diner breakfast. Nice choice on menu. It was too bad they were out of sticky buns though.

The food was good, once we were waited on. The waitresses were overwhelmed and the manager did not even help with pouring coffees or seating people. I felt horrible for these women running around. The décor was awful...simple would be better

We bought two cups of coffee, sat at the counter. Coffee was so-so. The price was high-way robbery. 4.25 a cup! Very expensive poor tasting coffee.

Its a great looking restaurant from the road and parking lot...but the experience I had was awful. The waitress was great. The food was terrible... Dry over fried and no flavor. I have no plans on going back

We lunched here with my family of four. The start was not good: we had to run into the place because of heavy rain and accidentally walked past the 'wait here to be seated' sign. The manager (?) and the waitress did not like this at all and scowled at us. The burgers were fantastic, though! Fresh buns, good meat,... More

We ate at State College Diner while visiting for a few days and the breakfast food was great. The price was right too! My husband enjoys scrapple and was happy to see it on the menu and he said it was very good. He had the 2 eggs, hash browns and toast special, #5 and liked his food. I enjoyed... More
