Good omelet. Casual atmosphere. The service is better during the week, be sure to look for discount coupons

“All-American 60's style diner”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Loved it! Like walking through a time warp into an iconic 60's style diner with red shiny seating, a yummy all-american breakfast menu (pancakes galore) and interesting retro memorabilia, including a rare Edsel (car) parked up outside the restrooms. It would have been the maple syrup on the pancake if the staff had been serving on rollerskates, but can't have it all.

Nothing fancy, just yummy food, diner style. Friendly, efficient staff. We came here twice for dinner, and once for breakfast. Large portions.

“Worth visiting for the Eggs Benedict”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Lori's is a fifties-style diner, with a varied menu, but for me the Eggs Benedict is hard to beat! Definitely worth a visit, and don't forget to bring your camera to take a photo of the 50's car inside the Lori's dinner on Power Street, north of Union Square.
