    Good waffles. Cheap eats. Packed on the weekend I was there but we got seated quickly.

    Very no frills place. Waffles were OK. Scrambled eggs looked sad and unseasoned. But good for a quick meal.

    Horrible service, customer service and attitude, average and cold food. Please go if you want foreign objects in your food (e.g., bits of a plastic fork) and have them not comp you!

    Very popular and highly rated. We thought the food was average. Very crowded, kind of dirty and loud. Our waiter was extremely efficient

    Food was below average. Waffles tasted like an Ego that was put in the toaster. The only reason it was on Parks and Rec was because it had the word Waffle in it. Try Bob and Edith's Diner instead.

    Pretty good waffles. But 50$ for regular waffles and coffee (for 4 people) is ridiculous.

    Great service, but if cleanliness is your thing be sure to not look around. I got pancakes with scrambled eggs and bacon and it was good--typical diner food!

    Too American to be good. Everything is fried and coffee only in this regular style. They look like hardly surviving.

    Sure, it's a tourist trap. But it's also one of the few authentic old-school dining experiences left in downtown.

    The waffles, pancakes and eggs are delicious! As a Jersey girl transplant, I needed to find a diner I could call home. The service is quick and efficient! This is part of my lunch rotation!

    If you're looking for a quick non-touristy bite in a tourist neighborhood, this would do! The waffles are thin, and the service is quick.

    Nice little diner. I ordered blueberry pancakes and they did not skimp. They had American cheese for eggs when most place only have cheddar. Place and ordered and ordered a second to go. I love eggs

    Decent breakfast close to the museums. Not the best but there's really not much of an option in the area. Not very clean and the waffles were soggy.

    hash is delicious but salty - for the two of us, a perfect combo eggs & hash and a waffle to share
