Classic delicious cool diner breakfast

Just finished delicious breakfast before the Underground Tour. Found Planer Java on tripadvisor. We had pancakes, garden omelette. Nice hashbrowns, fluffy pancakes. Fresh ingredients including avocado. Cool nostalgia decor and nice staff. Perfect way to start day.

We were directed to this diner by a local and it was a great recommendation for a great value breakfast in a city. The menu was typical of many diners throughout the USA but it was what we needed to set us up for the day. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was good. The music was... More

We were staying at the Marriott Courtyard and this was a nearby breakfast/lunch stop. So glad we ventured out! Great service, excellent home cooked food and the restaurant is immaculate. We both had omelets that were cooked to perfection with just the right amount of filling. The biscuit was like those we get down south. Wished it had been later... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. It was all standard brunch fare (nothing "foodie" or fancy) and the prices matched! The restaurant also had a funky, laid-back feel to the oldies decor. The wait-staff were friendly, but seemed a little over-worked.

I hesitate to recommend this place, because that means it will be more crowded when we want to visit (hahaha).I am a bit confused by some of the previous reviews I am seeing. We found this spot on accident while in town for a family trip. Our experience was great. We actually visited 2 days in a row for breakfast.... More

Took 36 min before breakfast was served. Place was packed and three members vof wait staff were running through the place. There was definitely effort and hgeart but appears there was no organization. We had ample time onb our Amtrak layover and time was not an issue for us. However, people walked out. It was extremely busy. Not sure if... More

Stopped in for lunch and had burgers and French Dip sandwiches that were all yummy. Funky fun decor and good prices so a great choice for lunch.

This is a classic American diner. The booths are red with white lining, the coffee comes from a pot that they have on a heat plate and the ketchup is on the table. Planet Java Diner offers classic American breakfast and lunch foods. If a classic American breakfast is what you're looking for this place does it right. No frills,... More
