I have always had a thing for 50's style diners and this place is a great example of what makes them special. I recently went for breakfast and had french toast with strawberries, nuts, chocolate sauce and whipped cream which was just decadent. Not something...More

Highland Park Diner offers the most creative and tasty specialty pancakes. The entire menu is filled with meals that will make your taste buds dance with excitement. Great local diner for comfort food. Worth the wait if there is one for seating. Retro atmosphere, but...More

Gross, greasy breakfast. Dirty facility and poorly maintained. The sausage tasted rank. Italian toast was soggy and nothing more than white bread in a different shape. Millennials may still flock to it, but it has completely lost its luster of former days.

My daughter and I had a short period of time for a late lunch before a flight. Snowy day. We both ordered salads. Fresh, tasty, excellent tuna and chicken salads showed up in just a few minutes. Nothing but praise for this place.

Our third time here for breakfast and we love it. Sit at the counter and watch them work their magic in the kitchen. Great for breakfast.

I like the diner feel, although it's a little small. Their food takes a bit but is very good. My favorite was the apple pie milkshake!

I love going to this place when in Rochester. We sat at the counter because it was so busy. I had to force myself to put down the menu because every time I looked I found another great idea that I could order! Milkshakes are...More
