Classic Diner is a great spot in downtown West Chester. I've been here many times and I've never had a bad meal which is always breakfast. It definitely runs on the expensive side and the seating is a bit cramped but service is excellent and...More

I will say the quality of the food here is quite good, but I don't think many can justify the cost that Classic Diner has. A bill for 2 adults for breakfast can easily be over $50 - especially for a town like West Chester,...More

We had a great breakfast here. Bacon was outstanding. The omelets were also. And the pancakes were divine.

I like the classic dinner a lot, they have very fresh fast food, all good quality, but you pay through those nose when the bill arrives, Breakfast for two was $45 without tip. It's also very noisy

It's not really a true diner, but really something different. It's great for a quick business lunch, or to just hang out. I had the BLT for lunch - $8 is a deal for this sandwich.
