Stopped here on our way back home on a whim. Parking lot was packed so we had to park across the street. Wait for a table at noon on a Saturday was 20 minutes ... unless we sat outside. Outside seating was small, and we were served after two other parties of two that arrived after us. Agree with another... More

Drove quite far to fit this little gem and it was worth it! Everyone was super friendly, great service and awesome salmon breakfast! They make a mean cappuccino, the cinnamon dusting was a tasty touch! Loved the decor, not your typical diner, think upmarket diner, really lovely building!

Long time breakfast haunt for those on the western Main Line. I don't remember a time when the Classic Diner wasn't the place to go to for breakfast. Very busy after church in Sunday's and parking can be challenging. The food is good for diner fare and the ambiance is much better than your old time diner. Service is polite,... More

I will say the food is delicious and the portions are huge, Check out the eggs Benedict, bacon, and burgers! Service is great too. My major issue with this place is seating. You practically sit on top of each other and the isle you walk through is so tiny. I think it's more of a 3.5 stars, take out might... More

This is one of our favorite breakfast or lunch stops. The pepper and egg. Omelet is huge and you'll take some home. Today for lunch I had the Tuna melt sandwich another favorite.

The food is consistently good at the Classic Diner. We particularly like breakfast - always more than enough to eat with really good coffee. We've generally sat at the bar for breakfast as the wait for tables can take awhile - especially on weekends. Tables are pretty close to one another. Parking is free and usually you can find a...

Tucked in the burbs just outside of West Chester, this cozy-"always bustling" little diner is a MUST DINE for anyone visiting our area. It is truly my GO TO recommendation for business friends who are in town and is a frequent gathering spot for celebrities making an appearance on QVC. The menu is comforting with generous portions that have been... More
