Diners are always a good idea. With 24-7 breakfast options, burgers and fries, salads galore and plenty of pasta dishes, it seems like there’s something for everyone. While most diner menus go on and on forever, we’ve got a few tips to help you whittle the decision down:


Landmark Diner

{265 S. Highland Ave., Ossining, 914-762-7700, lmdny.com}

This shiny silver eatery opens up to plenty of seating, an upscale look, and checkerboard floors.

Can’t Miss Breakfast: Chef Mark’s “Big Breakfast” includes pancakes or French toast, two eggs any style, two sausage links, 2 bacon strips and a slice of ham ($11.49).

Dine On: Their St. Louis Style BBQ ribs ($16.99)

Dishes on the children’s menu are named after New York teams. Ordering the “NY Knicks,” for example, will serve up a good portion of spaghetti and meatballs.


Dobbs Diner

{434 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, 914-674-0850}

You can’t miss this stone structure as you travel down Route 9.

Can’t Miss Breakfast: The diner uses farm fresh eggs to create their eggs florentine. Poached eggs sit on a bed of spinach end English muffins before smothered in a hollandaise sauce ($7.95).

Dine On: Dobbs offers plenty of pastas, but try the “chicken princess.” A chicken breast is stuffed with crabmeat before sautéed in light butter ($14.95).

Go for the gold with the Belgian Waffle Sundae. Their Belgian waffle is topped with your favorite ice cream, nuts, chocolate syrup and whipped cream ($7.95).

Nautilus of Mamaroneck

{1240 W. Best Post Rd., Mamaroneck, 914-833-1339}

Skip this one for breakfast and save it for dessert. With an old-fashioned fountain favorites like ice cream soda ($3.49) and brownie delights to banana royales ($5.99)—three scoops of ice cream, bananas, syrup, whipped cream and a cherry—to choose from, you’ll want to visit later in the day.

Dine On: Grilled cheese anyone? Nautilus has several varieties (cheddar, Swiss, and mozzarella) and one bite will send you straight back to your childhood ($4.49 – $6.09). Another can’t miss item? The spring lamb chops served with mint jelly ($19.78).


The Bedford Diner

{710 Bedford Rd., Bedford Hills, 914-241-4808, bedforddiner.com}

Another classically designed exterior and interior, The Bedford Diner has a very comprehensive menu including plenty of broiled seafood options.

Can’t Miss Breakfast: Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes! You’ve got two healthy options—sweet potato and whole wheat—but live a little and go for the sweet chocolate chip ($5.95 – $6.65)

Dine On: The roasted chicken features apple stuffing, your choice of soup or salad, potato and vegetables ($12.95). The meatloaf is made from a “homestyle” recipe and topped with mushroom sauce ($12.95).
