Visited the Highland Park Diner for a late lunch. Service was quick and pleasant, the waitress very accommodating. The food was good basic diner food. Hot and tasty. The meatloaf was tender and moist, portion was generous. Will surely return.

We went for early dinners two nights in a row in January of 2014. Brought our two boys ages 10 and 4. It is the best. All the servings are very generous; the kids meals are about $3.50 and huge. Service is quick and friendly. The decor is great, it feels like the 50s. The food was very tasty, and very hot. It was like it all came out of the oven/grill at the same time. We go here every time we go to the Children's Museum. You can't go wrong here, we will be back soon!

I just celebrated my 68th birthday and to start my day off I wanted to have breakfast at the Highland Park Diner. What's so special you say. Well I've lived in the neighborhood of Highland Park all my life and I've never been to the Diner. So Now it was time. I ordered the Ham and Cheese Omelet which I always order and it was very good. The diner itself is charming and what I expected. My GF gave me some NYS scratch off tickets for my birthday and wanted me to open them while I was waiting for breakfast to arrive. Well surprise! I won $50.

Now read this. Right after our breakfast at the Highland Park Diner we headed to Wellsboro, Pa for a weekend of sightseeing. In Wellsboro, Pa they have the Wellsboro Dinner which is a clone of the Highland Park Diner. What are the chances of that happening. So on our last day in Wellsboro we had breakfast at the other diner. Check out my photo.

You will step into the Highland Park Diner and feel as if you have traveled back 50 years in time. While the decor is classic it is well kept and clean. There is generous selection of menu items to choose from, I had soup and a burger both were very good. Nothing but good times at the Diner, I would return.
