    Always loved their old diner style here, such a sweet place to eat. The new owners have done it justice as the food is very delicious. House made hash, homemade breads from the local blue heron bakery, French toast stuffed with Bavarian cream~yum! Friendly staff, super clean, reasonable & you will clean your plate.

    We stumbled across this wonderful diner while driving through Penn Yan to visit a Mennonite farm store. We were pleasantly surprised to find that this diner offers plentiful gluten-free options. My wife got the gluten-free pancakes and also a side of bacon. She loved both. I got the eggs benedict and black coffee and everything was great. There was a good many locals that made for interesting small-town people watching. The staff at the restaurant were very kind and very welcoming. The food also came out astoundingly quickly. I am 6‘2“ tall and I will say that the door and the ceiling were rather low which made the place even more charming, although I did have to duck in order to walk into the establishment. The bathrooms were well-kept but tiny for such a tall man as myself. Not a bad thing just simply something to note. Highly recommend! You definitely need to visit this place for breakfast or lunch if you’re driving through Penn Yan.

    It’s rare to find a classic / oldschool diner with any plant-based options. Penn Yan diner had several vegan options, and I enjoyed a vegan Belgian waffle with a side of Beyond Sausage. It was phenomenal. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and our food came out so quickly. Very affordable too! Well worth the stop.

    A wonderful bit of old fashioned Americana right smack in the middle of the computer age! It was Sunday morning, we went in, they took my cell number and texted me when we could be served. We waited about 20 minutes. We sat at the end of the counter where all the cooking action takes place. You use your phone camera to snap the QR code and your menu appears on your phone! Pancakes, buckwheats, waffles, French toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, corned beef hash, hot coffee and decaf too! Lunch items, French onion soup. You want it, they got it in a 1925 dining car. It's a meal and a show all at once. Great buckwheat pancakes. If I lived in Penn Yan, I'd eat there every weekend! Great food and lots of nostalgia and just plain FUN!

    They had gluten free bread they used to substitute eggs Benedict. The hollandaise was yum & the eggs cooked perfectly. Also a good serving of hollandaise! The gluten free bread was pretty good. Their gluten free Belgian waffle with ice cream, ugh so good!!! A must try especially if you're Gluten intolerant. Gluten free pancakes also were really good. Sausage links were not best but not worst, bacon not best either. And home fries weren't really how most home fries are, needed more cooking. Coffee was good! Such a cute place BTW. Staff were nice but they were understaffed both times so service a bit slower than other places. So if you're in a hurry, not sure how well it would go. Also they were very aware of gluten allergies. Highly recommend!! It was packed both times FYI.
