The food here is terrible. My husband ordered a turkey melt and the turkey was rancid. The waiter clearly wanted to be somewhere else. I would not eat here again.

We have had loads of breakfasts here. It is popular and there is often a wait, but it is worth it. All the usual breakfast suspects and many more besides. Only complaint is that the menu changes at weekends and becomes more expensive, if you go in for the same thing you had on Friday - it isn't there!

We've been to a lot of diners and the Astro was small and cold. The food was mediocre at best but you were paying area prices for it. For $70 for a diner breakfast for 4 (waffle, french toast, an omelet and a basic 2-eggs w/ bacon, homefries and toast) you'd expect the eggs to not be rubbery, the omelet to not be overdone and the syrup to not come in Smuckers packages.

We were staying at the Warwick Hotel across the street, & after seeing the breakfast menu prices at the hotel, we opted for the Astro. What a great choice! It's a diner type place, packed in with small booths & counter service, always crowded at breakfast (we ate here 3 mornings), & amazingly fast & friendly service. And good food. Almost forgot that part. Large menu with many choices, don't be surprised by a line out the door. And don't be put off by the line, either, because they work fast & furious to get people seated & fed. We never had to wait long & we never saw a seat empty for more than 3 minutes. It was perfect for us & half the price of breakfast at the hotel. We averaged $15 per person for full breakfast.
