Decided to try something new with a friend. I live in Mid-town so I Google breakfast restaurant in the area. This place is awesome!!! We had the Puppy Pile with a side of potatos... Food ☕ was great the restroom 🚻 clean. We were waited on by not just one person but everyone interactive with us. It had that home feeling... definitely we will be coming back... And you must try the homemade jam on the pancakes.... Yummy 😋

Place was good. I had fried chicken and it was amazing. Nice and crisp while staying juicy. Wine list was good. Didn't order wine, was just in the area for work. Service was pretty good, maybe a little slow but they were very busy so it's understandable. All in all, a good place. If I'm in the area again, if go again.

The last time I was here I ordered Monica's Chicken Pozole. It was so good. I've had their fried chicken which is certainly some of the best I've eaten, it that Pozole reminded me how delicious simple food can be. Their menu has something for everyone and treat yourself to some of their sweets.

Not your ordinary diner! From the homemade salsa and strawberry jam on the table, to the linguica sausage or bacon donut, this is an awesome breakfast place. We've been for lunch, but breakfast is my thing here. I'm a fan of the egg dishes and the maple donut with bacon lardons might sound unusual, but don't judge it until you've tried it!

Love this spot I always order the same thing which is the Vegan Ranchero and can only eat half! I love that they have fresh squeezed orange juice and something on their menu for everyone! I wish they were open on Mondays and took reservations cuz Sunday's wait time can be about 30-45min if your coming for brunch!

Great biscuits and gravy. Their huevos rancheros is good too. Homemade jam is a touch above the rest. Good value.

Nickel Diner is just a really good diner. It's a bit more fancy than your average diner. But if your parents are the kind of people who feel out of place at a nice restaurant, this is a place where they will feel comfortable, and you will still like the food. It's best feature is probably its desserts. I had the Nutella donut, which was great. It's a cake donut with Nutella and some crunch, probably a mashed up cereal. I didn't ask. All of the desserts looked wonderful and justify a return trip. The service was prompt and courteous.
