We stopped here for breakfast after reading reviews on trip advisor but we were slightly disappointed in this diner. The sausages were soggy orange juice bitter and coffee was so so. We didn't go back

This place is open 24/7. Nice to know that you can get good food anytime. Had dinner here with a good friend and her daughter. Police cars were outside while the guys were eating inside. Ordered the puttanesca (mediterranean olives, huge capers, and savory tomatoes), the daughter ordered a fish sandwich (twice the size of the plate it was served... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the convention center. We had eaten here years before and really enjoyed it. This time it was like a completely different diner. The service was extremely slow and not very friendly. The food we all agreed was not good. I had an omelet with cheese and really did not enjoy it.... More

We went here twice for breakfast while staying at the nearby New Yorker Hotel on 34th st. 1st time before walking to the Intrepid museum and the second time before walking the High line. It's right opposite the large B & H camera store and looks just like a traditional diner should. Food was excellent and good value with many... More

I was staying at the Gem Hotel, Hudson Yards, and was looking for a place for brunch on a rainy Saturday morning. I went for a walk and "discovered" the Skylight Diner. What a treat! The menu had a little of everything and the prices were less "New Yorkish" than most places. It's a busy place, but folks are in... More

This is a "real deal" NY diner. It is always reliable with a great selection of varied foods from burgers and sandwiches to salads and Greek specials. While it is always busy, the service is fast and attentive and prices are very reasonable. There is something to please anyone's tastes. We have never sampled the desserts, but the display of...

Great waitress you wouldn’t mess with her. I had a fried egg and Canadian bacon roll. I cheated myself I should have gone for American streaky. The orange juice and coffee were good and lots of locals which I think is a good measure of a place. Wished I had been hungrier when I visited I would have tried more... More

a great little diner. fast and friendly service, very busy but plenty of tables available, the diner seems to be very popular. A big choice on the menu. each of my party enjoyed what they ordered. Great value menu, recommended for a fairly cheap meal out in NYC.

All day breakfast, sandwiches, a menu that goes on for pages and pages - the quintessential NYC diner experience. Good solid comfort food. I am partial to their turkey burgers, chicken kebob sandwich and their coleslaw. It's not gourmet but hey this is a diner not some fancy schmancy high end restaurant. You will get good food that is well... More
