“Nice Diner”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Stopped there with my grandson who was very hungary....The staff went out of there way to make him happy. Brought bread & Butter and took his order immediately....
Food was good...had a home made tasting meatloaf & the corn beef was very tender & moist...
Very nice sitting outside on patio..

“Best Diner Food in West Palm Beach”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

In a converted Pizza Hut sits one of the not so hidden finds in West Palm Beach. It really should be on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

The interior is decorated with 50's and 60's signs and knick knacks which is so nostalgic.

The food is SUPERB....breakfasts have the usual fare but you might be surprised with lobster hash and the waffles and blueberry pancakes are light and finger lickin good.
Lunch you might find a fried green tomato BLT and the best Tuna Salad Sandwich I have had in years. The Tuna Burger is also a gem.
Dinner will find Ricky's delectable Chicken Pot Pie or Eggplant Parm along with a tasty Teriaki Salmon plus numerous other choices and even the flatbread Pizza is great for a diner.

There are a great variety of desserts but always two glass jars full of free candy and gum on your way out.

Ricky and his mother Jo owned a 5 star french restaurant in Palm Beach before opening up the City Diner and that influence is definitely felt.

The lines for weekend breakfast and many lunches are worth the short wait.

Great Job

“Great place”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We had breakfast here one Sunday and was impressed enough to come back for an early dinner. Good food. Period. No frills, but if we lived in WPB, this would be one of our 'go-to' places. Only downside is the airplane noise if you are outside, but you can always eat inside.

“New favorite breakfast place”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Breakfast twice this weekend. Bacon and other food was much better quality than our normal weekend breakfast. Great coffee and OJ. Decor was amazing, staff attentive. No problem adding whipped cream and chocolate chips to pancake egg combo. Did not feel rushed. Pretty sure early arrival by 08:30 is a good idea. Nice outside dining area on north side of building. Parking lot kind of small.

“Food is always good”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Sometimes it's crowded and it's small, but food always good. It's down-home as a diner should be. Open morning, noon and night and there is a breakfast special Monday to Friday morning.
