  • Staff Pick! Deb (Digital Lab): Breakfast at lunchtime and classic diner food amid year-round holiday decorations.
  • Go to Tom's Restaurant and get the Harvest Pancakes.
  • 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.
  • The fries are good, but dipping them in this gamechanger (called "Chipotle Sauce," it may be at your table right now; if not, ask) kicks Tom's fries to the next level.
  • Cherry lime Ricky! Don't doubt.
  • 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.
  • Don't forget to use the cinnamon butter on your chocolate chip pancakes. Sooo good.
  • I don't think I've ever been to a restaurant with such terrible service. French fries are legit though.
  • enjoy it. it's great.
  • weekend brunch is a MUST. cheap, delicious, friendly, and best of all - they serve you snacks and drinks while waiting in line!
  • Fantastic. The staff is super friendly, the food is great, and it has great vibe. Bonus: They bring out food while you wait in line.
  • 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.
  • Don't worry if the line is super long. It moves fast and they bring you treats while you wait! We got a couple of types of cookies and some French fries.
  • Legendary pancakes and a cash-only, classic coffee shop vibe keep it popular with residents of all ages.
  • Awesome diner with great prices. Get the lemon ricotta pancakes or the pumpkin walnut Belgian waffle. And not enough can be said about the amazing cinnamon butter.
  • The lemon ricotta pancakes are great!
  • Get the harvest pancakes!!! Such a surprising delight :)
  • Jammed on Saturdays - go early and expect to stand in line but they do give out free coffee and cookies
  • (The one in Brooklyn!) This is THE quintessential diner experience. Order the lemon-ricotta pancakes, a cherry lime rickey and maybe an egg cream.
