This was my first visit to the Gem Diner, and I must admit that I was pretty impressed! The first sign was a line out the door as people were waiting for tables. Popularity often spells success among restaurants, and this is a perfect example. The restaurant is well known for being a campy breakfast location, with a menu that is geared toward that time of day. With the possible exception of lox & bagels, which I did not see on their menu, I believe that they had just about everything.
I ordered corned beef hash with toast and a fruit cup, and the dish they brought me was LOADED with a huge portion. Some of the other plates around me bordered on the ridiculous...they would have made 2-3 meals for most people.
Service here was also good, and they took care of everything I needed. I really enjoyed my meal, and would look forward to coming back sometime.
