I love to eat in classic diners (i.e. converted train cars) while sitting at the bar watching life go by. So I was in the market for a breakfast place while visiting Rochester and came up with the HPD.
It is truly a classic from its location on a triangular intersection (with some but not heaps of parking) to the crowded, bustling interior as many people had decided to enjoy a late brekkie. Reservations not accepted, of course, but it was only a 10 minute wait till a bar spot opened for my daughter, her husband and me.
The breakfast menu is extensive but grouped around themes of eggs benedict, or french toast/ pancakes, omelettes, and grills.
My daughter had an egg benedict variant, my son-in-law tried the "highland grill" and I went for banana nut french toast with real maple syrup (extra). They were all extremely ample and superbly done. My french toast was actually banana nut bread, smothered in bananas and accompanied with banana nut butter that was like a dessert!
All up, it was a classic experience and I will be back the next time I'm in the "Flour City".
