Had a great breakfast, really enjoyed the French toast with fruit. Service was great, everyone friendly, management, staff, other diners. Hope to get back here next time I'm in Chicago, which I also hope will be soon. Also, had a great walk from Randolph south to the Diner, saw some old neighborhoods, lots of universities.

I really liked this place. I had the vegetarian burger made out of beets. It really did taste like beef, had the texture of beef, and looked like beef. Very good and the fries were really good also. A lot of the things in the menú looked great to me.

Lovely food. Well looked after by Alex. Very interesting décor. You feel like you're in an original diner from the 50s.
