Really friendly staff, super breakfast choices, fabulous service - this is a real gem. Plus it's the real deal - a true old diner. I spoke with one of the co-owners - this isn't a business, it's a passion. Highly recommended.

Walked around the construction next door to get to The Diner. It was our first trip to Omaha and that meant beef should be on the menu. We tried a steak and corned beef hash with our eggs. The steak was thin, but tender and...More
