The menu is limited, and they only accept cash. That being said, the food is excellent. The breakfast and burgers are my personal favorites. The staff are also quick and friendly.

We didn't want to eat breakfast in a chain restaurant so my son who was graduating from Binghamton University last weekend said this seem popular. Well it was worth traveling because the food was good and the people nice. That day the special was banana bread french toast which my son had. We all had some and it was wonderful.... More

Food was good other than my steak was all grizzle. As for my eggs and potato cakes, they were good. Good service and prices. Nothing surprising, but not bad...well other than that "steak."

Decent food for a great price I ordered French toast with ham. My girlfriend ordered a broccoli and cheese omelet. Food was served in 5 mins😊. Lots of choices of food on the menu. Great service. I will be back to try again soon.

I never tire of this place - and I love their garbage omelet - very nice, homely atmosphere, conveniently located on the parkway - great service - do not go there if you are expecting fancy ambiance - bring cash, grab a table and order the garbage omelet - you will not regret it

After searching and searching for a decent breakfast spot, we came across the Skylark. Great vintage building with amazingly efficient and swiftly moving waitresses. All was good, coffee could be a bit stronger. We enjoyed sitting at the counter to watch the action!

We had the two egg special, which comes with toast and home fries. I liked it, but the homefries had a light after taste that was buttery. I'm not sure if I'd want those again, but it was good enough to eat. The eggs were perfect though and coffee was good.. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. I plan... More

What can one expect from diner in Vestal? The answer is not much. If you come into this diner with that expectation you will not be disappointed. The chefs make what they can with the low quality ingredients provided to them, and it turns out decent at best. You are not in for a treat. You are in for an... More
