“Fun kitch joint in Swinevill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2009

A real diner with nothing premade. This place looks like something you would see in a tourist trap, but it is in a fun urban setting. Great place to grabe a bite to eat with friends.

“A favorite place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2008

We like the Highland Park Diner for breakfast. On a recent visit we had cinnamon french toast, blackberry and almond pancakes, corned beef hash and a ham and cheese omelet. Overall it was all very good and freshly made. Standouts were the pancakes and the hash. Whole fresh berries and nuts studded the cakes which were huge. The hash was homemade with shredded beef, a little potato and onion - very good. The omelet was fine with a generous side of bacon (received the wrong toast). The french toast was interesting. Made with cinnamon bread, it was already quite sweet, then it was served with a side of some kind of cinnamon-y nutty frosting. It was overkill, we didn't bother with the frosting after trying a little - gunky sweet. Coffee was good, not great but perfectly fine. The decor is wonderful and worth a trip alone. VERY friendly server and fast. Very much recommended. Because its in the city, that might explain the lack of old-time "diner atmosphere". But everyone is super nice so no worries there.
