“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

We enjoyed the "Happy Days" ambience of the diner. Our evening meal wasn't expensive. We had a reasonable steak, broiled as requested, but not much flavour. Fresh, basic salad and one option of steamed green veg. These may be the "fresh local products" advertised. Service was reasonable.

Many starters, entrees and sides were high carb, crumbed/battered, fried, mashed with butter, garlicy, cheesy or salted, which isn't our taste so we didn't return.

“Always a treat!”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Wish we had a Silver Diner in Princeton, NJ. If there is one along our route, will make the effort to go, never disappoints. First time at this location, had a 10 minute wait, well worth it. Eggs were perfect, coffee is pretty good & this biscuits were delicious. Not inexpensive, but the quality is there. Shout out to Sam Kaufman, the manager. He made us feel very welcome. Can't wait to return.

“Sunday brunch, local fare - worth the wait”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We had an excellent Sunday brunch here; the eggs are fresh and locally sourced as is quite a bit of the meat and produce, apparently. Whatever you get in the way of breakfast, the chicken-maple sausage and wheat toast are terrific additions. I'd skip the home fries and biscuit next time, though.

“Classic diner”
Reviewed 6 March 2013 via mobile

This place is everything you expect in the true old school diner definition. They have a huge menu, classic decor, friendly staff and the coffee flows fast. A great place for business or pleasure and only a short walk from the Metro.

“Loved this place!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We went to breakfast here on a recommendation from the front desk people at our hotel. We are so glad we did! This place is excellent! I got the Veggie Scrambler. It came with pancakes and strawberries as well. YUM! Their coffee is also very good. The atmosphere was fun with the 50's style diner decor and music. We really enjoyed eating here.
