    Great breakfast spot. Pancakes, corn beef hash, coffee, egg cream and huevos rancheros are all phenomenal

    The pancakes here! I ordered the sweet potato ones and it came with pumpkin butter. Honestly tasted like a pumpkin pie :)

    The service is unreal!! Alfredo is the man! You may have a short wait but the lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes and crab cake florentine are well worth it!

    Best diner in the area. This place makes you feel at home and taken care of. They really get their Hows right by outbehaving all other competition. $ low prices ;-)

    I've had the pancakes, the omelets (spinach and mozzarella and the bacon), their cheese grits and sausage! ALL THEIR food is good to me...then again I eat everything pretty much! Ohh and the Lime Rick Read more

    I live for the harvest pancakes (sweet corn & dried cranberries) with the cinnamon butter. I might have ordered something different once.

    Get the 2x2x2 Special (2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon/sausage) with their (amazing!) smoked beef sausage. upgrade your pancakes to the Lemon Ricotta pancakes.

    If you haven't had their cherry lime Rickey you should get off this app and get one now. Amazing. Also, huge portions!

    What's good here? How about everything. My taste buds sang Ave Maria the whole time I ate the apple walnut cinnamon pancakes.

    While you wait in the long line, cooks bring you cookies, coffee, sometimes even little pancakes. Everything is amazing but the specialty pancakes and French Fries are standout.

    Hangover medicine ASAP, in the form of serious diner food. Hit up Tom’s on your way to the Park for the only cure you’ll need.

    Staff Pick! Katie (Curatorial): Their burgers are the best true diner burgers in the area...and they have every type of pancake or pancake topping under the sun.

    The pancakes are very dry. Like, stick to the roof of you mouth dry. This place may be a piece of history, but the lemon ricotta pancakes here are no match for Plow in SF.

    Pretty disappointed. The eggs Benedict was a hard boiled egg with cheese on top, and the corn-beef hash was char burned. I guess just get the pancakes

    If you don't like diners, we can't be friends. And if you don't like Tom's, you hate America. Crab cakes and eggs.

    Crab cake florentine is a bit salty for me. Otherwise all good as a dinner.

    Whatever you get, get the chilli burger and don't skimp on the fries.

    Legendary pancakes and a cash-only, classic coffee shop vibe keep it popular with residents of all ages.

    Open daily from 7 am until 4 pm. They are giving out little bites while you are in line waiting to get in. Great atmosphere and food!

    Come before 10, and if there's a line, enjoy being fed in it. Have tons of fun ordering anything off the menu and enjoying it.

    Good value for money. Big portions. Go sweet and get pancakes. Omelettes aren't the main attraction.

    3 sunny side up eggs with a way too generous portion of pastrami with the most crispiest side of fries ever! Don't forget to wash this down with a refreshing glass of lemonade.

    Gus & Nonie have the best Diner in Prospect Hts, if not the world. They've maintained the integrity of the place for over 60 years while being welcoming to everyone. Maybe it inspired Suzanne Vega,

    Staff Pick! Stephanie (Education): Tom's is a reminder that brunch is a good idea at any time of day. Old-fashioned diner style meets new-fangled approaches to the ultimate brunch food: pancakes.
