“Amazing Ham sandwich!”

Just started working in the area a few months ago and stopped in a few times for breakfast... it was delicious. I saw a few reviews about how great the ham sandwich was, so I decided to try it. Hot ham and cheese on white toast. My grandmother use to make me Hot ham and cheese all the time. This took me right back to her kitchen as a kid. I highly reccomend getting one if you are in the area. Well worth the trip if you are not. Delicious!!!

For those of you looking for the "old down home" diner experience, this is the place. There is always a crowd but the short order cooks are fast. The food is your typical breakfast far and is very good. For those wanting ham, they keep a ham hock by the stove top and just slice a piece off. Much more character and better food then going to a chain restaurant.

Local institution. Friendly service, tasty foods and great atmosphere. Parking is rather limited. If I could I would eat breakfast here everyday. Everything was delicious: eggs, scrapple, home fries, toast and chipped beef. I heard one must try the ham. Cash only.

Local institution. Hit or miss service, hit or miss food. Sometimes, it's memorable. Sometimes, you wish you could forget. Family run. Your experience depends on whom, in the family, is your waiter/waitress.

I love Nick's Diner! It's the perfect neighborhood diner, serving breakfast and lunch via short-order cook, who you can watch from your stool at the counter. There are also a half dozen small tables in the back. My favorite order includes banana pancakes, a side of ham (a must-have at Nick's!), coffee, and OJ.

The downsides are 1) having to wait for a spot at the counter or for a table on weekend mornings, but it's definitely worth it! And 2) they only accept cash.

But the service is terrific, warm and welcoming, and the place is family-run.
