“A Reliable Diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Good portions, decent selection, friendly staff, fair prices. It does not get more basic or reliable than this around here. Worth it for breakfast and lunch or even a quick dinner after a late night.

“Great old time dinner/breakfast joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Third year in a row when visiting from Atlanta, GA that I took mom to the Nyack Street Fair and stopped for an early breakfast. Attended to fast, breakfast made perfect, and staff is always polite. Not trendy like some of the places in Nyack, but if you want a good breakfast in what feels like a neighbor joint, this is it.

“Attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

There are numerous places that serve breakfast fare in Nyack. I have a hard time understanding why a group of cash paying customers I travel with is almost always greeted by a disgruntled owner. If you have to move a few tables to accomodate a genuinely happy to be here crowd...then move the tables and be happy to have them. The waitress service is terrific, but the owner needs change his disposition toward a group of people who grace his presence every so often. This could change in no short order.

“The Coolest Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Did you know that portions of “Twisted”, the ABC family thrilled is filmed in Nyack, at Johnny Cakes? Johnny Cakes has gotten special attention from this series since the restaurant’s interior was rebuilt in LA. Johnny Cakes is the new Tom’s Restaurant in “Seinfeld.” AND the food is great. Last night I had a Turkey dinner with all the fixings while my wife did not stop raving about her Italian Chicken dish. Our friends decided to have breakfast for dinner, with piles of delicious pancakes and sweet potato fries that don’t last long on the plate. It seems that the cast of “Twisted” is addicted to Johnny Cakes’ food as well, especially the desserts. Kylie Bunbury loves sweets, Maddie Hasson Johnny Cake’s ice cream, Avan Jogia and Sam Robards enjoy the hamburgers. Lately you find more teens coming to Johnny Cakes to meet the stars. But the staff at Johnny Cakes is reason enough to dine. So friendly! I’m a regular now. Great value, good food, fun time!
