A great place for a great cup of joe. Sit and relax on the comfy couch with your joe and a book. They have live music performance to add to the atmosphere.

Stopped for lunch with my business partner for a quick lunch I's a place where you will not leave hungry. The portions are huge. The food has nothing exceptional. The country fried steak is a little salty my friend had the grilled liver and enjoyed it Nothing over the top. Your average diner

Hot Spot Diner is my "go to" place for a delicious, hot breakfast in Newtown Square. Love the eggs, bacon, potatoes, and toast platter, sometimes one of the specials. The place is achingly plain, and the service ranges from excellent to spotty. But if you love a hot breakfast, check out Hot Spot!

Great food. Portions large. Food was great as diner food goes. Entrance could use a sprucing up. Wide menu selection. Breakfast available all day. Wait staff attentive.

Stopped here for breakfast. Fast and friendly, attentive service. The waitress served our waters by stacking one glass on top of another and carrying them in the middle. As a result she had her hand right around the top of the glass where you put your mouth so that was kind of gross.

We have frequented the Hot Spot Diner numerous times over the years. When they first opened, they offered great breakfasts and service. The parking lot is usually crowded, especially on a Sunday morning. We stopped in on Palm Sunday. Our timing was between church services so they were fairly empty when we entered. We were immediately seated and given coffee... More

We dropped in with 15 people on a Sunday morning and they cheerfully pulled tables together. Great breakfast menu with regional favorites - scrapple, corned beef hash and creamed chip beef. Friendly service that kept the coffee pouring. Food was delivered promptly. There was a steady stream of guests arriving. Will return for another breakfast. Decor was clean but not... More
