I had a bleu cheese burger which was decent but nothing special and my mom had a super dry meatloaf sandwich. Prices were cheap but the food showed why.

We popped in here and had a quick and tasty breakfast. I had the combo breakfast which included tea/coffee, orange juice, eggs and bacon and toast. The service was good and staff friendly ;-)

On our last night in Manhattan my wife and I wanted a simple, reasonable dinner. We had walked by the Starlight several times so gave it a shot. Good choice. The menu was typical diner and very reasonable. Our dinners were surprisingly good. We would definitely go back.

We went there after comicon and it was crazy busy so we expected to wait a while which fortunately wasn't the case. We arrived to a table with crumbs on it and what looked like dirty silverware...which luckily we didn't need or use. The service just seemed rush and the waitress was just rude.

Gigantic menu to choose from. Everything we tried was ok. Share if you can, since portions are rather big.

We loved the skylight diner, we visited for breakfast and ended up returning 4 mornings in a row. big portions and very tasty food. Try the 3 eggs any style with bacon, home fries and sausage. The staff are very friendly and efficient.. And the orange juice is amazing!
