We loved this place. We came here for brunch and had very tasty omelettes. The food is simple but very good, and the service was fast and nice. They also have more options than you could probably conceive of. Definitely a crowd pleaser. Take note:...More

Food Ok, but service is garbage and they only accept cash. The only good thing is that it stays open until late night and 14 hours on weekends

It was a lot of food and hot! Important that food is hot. Pot roast sandwich and mashed potatoes were good.

Seriously, I live in the neighborhood and we all know not to eat there. We're talking cafeteria level food for 3 times the price. I would love it if this iconic facade had a decent meal inside, but it doesn't, so don't eat there.

I see someone else explained how to get there. However, Tom's Diner is REALLY not worth the effort. It is cheap (plastic cups) and outrageously expensive ($8 minimum) at the same time If you plan to walk around Harlem and... More
