Really enjoyed breakfast here. I had banana French toast and it was really good! The Bloody Mary was a bit too spicy, but the mimosas were just right!

the food is not that good!! With so many other good places in the area, the South Street Diner seems to be a go to spot when stumbling drunk from a bar at 2:00 am (its open 24 hours). Never the less you will wake up with a sick feeling in your stomach.

pork roll is there, along with all the favorites. Nice little area and a cozy atmosphere. Got some age on it.

I've eaten here perhaps eight times in the last year and I've enjoyed it every time. Breakfast or dinner the food is honest, the portions more than adequate, the service plain but real and positive, the whole experience exactly what one looks for in a conventional diner. Perfect for a rainy day or a slow morning or any other time when you just want it to be a wonderful bygone America outside, because inside that's how it feels. Homey, like the way we imagine it should be.

I like to visit the South Street Diner for weekend Breakfast. The menu is good and the prices are reasonable. Service is Fast and the kitchen pumps out the orders quickly. Note; get there early on the weekends for breakfast the Diner is popular with the folks from the surrounding area. Also, Amex has a discount every once and while via Foursquare.
