We went to the Drake Diner for a breakfast gathering with family and friends before the Drake graduation ceremony. We had a small group, and some were there more for socializing, as they had already eaten at their hotel. However, we all wound up having some food, coffee, or other treats. We sat outside in the enclosed patio, as we had requested first available table to speed things up, but we had to put on light jackets to fend off the morning chill. We ordered a range of items, such as a yogurt smoothie, Belgian waffle, the Drake Diner special, a bacon cheese skillet and the chicken fried steak and eggs. Some of the entrees were huge, and I was surprised that there were few (if any) leftovers to take with us!
Service was pretty good, but we were not in a big hurry and we were enjoying the conversation. I think I'd go back on a future visit to the area. It's convenient and clean, with a large range of choices on the menu. I've never been there for lunch or dinner, so I can't comment on other reviewers' experiences at those times.
