I've reviewed this wonderful diner twice already but it so deserves another mention - the place just gets better every time! This is the third consecutive year we have dined here, and it means more to us than the sightseeing aspect of visiting New York. It feels like 'going home' to see family who you have not seen in a while, such is the warmth of the welcome we receive from the staff and the regular local customers too. In fact, if we are late arriving they go out in the street to see if they can see us coming!
Each day for the 2 fabulous weeks we eat breakfast and dinner there. The quality and quantity of the food is outstanding, and the level of service is first class. The prices are low and the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. The waiters are simply the best there is, particularly Tony and Reuben, for who nothing is too much trouble. The day chef is skilled and extremely efficient and the boss is friendly and appreciative of our repeat custom.
Please - make your stomach (and your wallet) smile, and visit Happy Days Diner at 146 Montague Street, Brooklyn - it's open 24 hours a day, so there is no excuse for not fitting it in. Say I sent you, and ask them to tell you about the bear who sits on top of the chiller! :)
