They didn't take our Visa card,nether tell us, after the meal. (How rinky dink is that!.). The toast was stale. And we asked forms doggie bag and they gave us a foam container without a bag. We asked for a plastic fork and they didn't have one! And the eggs were barely cooked! Tourists, beware! Never returning.

Found this absolute gem of a dinner! Decorated with Corning glass history. I tried the homemade Corn Beef Hash. Very delicious! Person sitting next to me at the counter had the flap jacks, I betting their as wonderful as the hash. Highly recommended this great dinner. Prices well below the average prices.

This is a old restaurant with charm of Corning Glass in the past. Really good food at a really good price. I had the cinnamon raisin texas style French toast. $3.95. The best French toast I have ever had. My husband had a omelet which was cooked perfectly.

Truly a coffee shop from the past. Basic food at phenomenal prices. Donna is delightful as is the rests of her staff. If you want brunch or a fancy breakfast, don't tho here. Go for the local color and food to get your morning started.

Had the New! Steakhouse Breakfast Sandwich at the recommendation of the waitress. And I loved it.. I definitely recommend trying it or the Sausage Gravy & Biscuits. .

The place is showing its age, but that's part of the charm about Donna's. This is the quintessential local diner. No frills, just good, home cooked meals that will cost you a fraction of what you'd spend at a lot of other places. This is definitely a locals' place, and if Donna doesn't recognize you, you can expect that she... More

My wife and myself, along with six other family members this past weekend visited the Finger Lakes area, enjoying all the wineries we could get in over a day and a half stay. We all enjoy dining local so I researched on "Tripadvisor" places for breakfast and dinner during our stay. Donna's was my choice for breakfast on Saturday morning.... More

I love to find where the people in the area go to eat! When we travel there are some times when we just need a quick meal, no fuss & to get on our way. We picked Donna's for our last breakfast before leaving the Corning area. Small place, basic breakfast selection but more than enough to start the day.... More

Stopped at Donna's on Market Street for a nice relaxing breakfast. Had scrambld eggs, bacon, toast, home fries. Very reasonably priced. Donna has a very large collection of Pyrex on shelves on the walls. What a nice addition to this quaint little restaurant, especially since pyrex is celebrating their 100 anniversary. Friendly staff. Open for breakfast and lunch.
