My wife and I stopped in to have lunch away from the hospital. Excellent selection of food, and it was delicious. Service was good as well.

We went on Sunday of RIT's family weekend, kmowing that Jay's Diner would be mobbed. Mt. Hope is closer to U of R; Jay's is closer to RIT. We were a party of five but were asked to sit at a larger table so they could serve us sooner. (OK by me!) Our order was taken in a reasonable amount... More

but this was probably one of the worst lunches my husband and I have ever had. Many people around us were having breakfast, and that looked good. We each had a cup of their daily special soup, Manhattan clam chowder. Pretty sure it came out of a can....a sliver of a clam and tasted a bit tinny. Then we decided... More

It's close to the U of R and one of the main drags. Food is not bad. and parking is beside it. Serves the usually diner fare.

Adjacent to Collegetown and walking distance from Strong Memorial Hospital and University of Rochester, it is easy to miss this diner's small non-lit sign walking on Mt. Hope street. Walking in is like walking into a genuine eatery of the past, with tasty very inexpensive basic food prepared simply. Nothing remotely fancy or pretentious; just genuine simplicity. Breakfast served at... More

I took my family to this place on Sunday morning. It was busy, but there was plenty of empty tables. We were told to seat ourselves. we waited about 10 minutes before a server showed up with menus. We had a 5 year old with us and he was asking about when he was going to eat. 10 minutes later... More

The place was clean and service good, but eggs over easy came out raw and pancakes still doughy. When the food gets to the table within five minutes of placing the order, something is allways undercooked. Plenty of other options in the area.

This is the second time my wife have had lunch here on our trips to Rochester. I ordered the Cuban sandwich on Ciabatta bread off the specials menu. My wife wasn't very hungry, so she just ordered an egg salad sandwich. Her sandwich was fine, and my Cuban sandwich was wonderful. It came with fries which were crisp and not... More

Today is Easter and I realised a lot of restaurants were closed today so I came here as I always wanted to. I order the entree chicken on rice with soup. It's nice and inexpensive. I will come again!
