My husband and I tried Thomas' for breakfast. We had passed it on a road trip, and turned back to try it. Very pleasant environment. Clean, cozy and well kept. Great service. Nice people. Breakfast was good. We had omelettes served in skillets with home fries. The cheese omelette and veggie omelette were both good. Great prices. Check them out!

Stopped for dinner a few blocks from the hotel. Great home made diner food. Quick and relatively inexpensive.

The eggs are served in a frying pan so stay hot which is very important to me. Good oatmeal.Pancakes are good though not the best. I Love Love the coffee cake. there is almost always a wait

I recently visited NY and my cousin took me to this small diner in Westbury. Parking is VERY LIMITED and seating can be a bit cramped, depending on when you go and how many people there are. When I went, my cousin told me that on weekends you cannot get into this place for breakfast, for the lines wrapped around... More

The line/wait for breakfast/lunch on weekends is slightly overwhelming. The wait (15-30 minutes) has been more than worth it on 3 occasions. The griddles stand out and are quite recommended. The apple pancakes are as well. Enjoyed the muffins as a take away treat. Plan to go back at least a few more times (at least 3) to try more... More

Order eggs and it comes in a frying pan, they actually bring the eggs to the table in the frying pan the eggs were cooked in. The hot pan sits on a plank of wood. Sounds weird, but it's very smart because your eggs stay warm, you may not want to eat breakfast off a plate after eating here. I... More

The gentleman who took of the customers didn't need our names. He remembered our faces and connected with us when our seats were available. We waited about 15-20 minutes. The waitress was friendly and our coffee was replenished as needed.

Everyone I spoke to (who loves the place) believes that eating your eggs out of a skillet makes the diner a great place to visit. I call eating your eggs out of a worn-out food-encrusted skillet - camping. Was the portion size large? Yes; but that doesn't mean I was served an omelet that tasted better than those made at...

It has been there forever, it's noisy and cramped, parking is terrible, they don't accept credit cards and you have to wait on line in the cold to get in And it's totally worth all that hassle. Food is fantastic, portions are huge with many entrees served in their own frying pan. Service is excellent, prices very reasonable and there... More

Imagine your eggs being served in a skillet. That is Thomas'sI Served hot with home fries or french fries, and toast. Ham, bacon, or sausage available and will be cooked to order. Service like you would expect at home. A go to place for lunch and dinner as well. Consistently outstanding!!
