I have been coming here for years, but on a recent visit they had upgraded their entire menu and switched to a computer system. IMPRESSIVE. I love the new selections which are more elaborate than before. I still stuck with an awesome stack of banana pancakes, but if you have not been here recently, go check it out! (Don't worry...you...

The freshest omelette I've ever had! I've never eaten so much breakfast food and not felt guilty about it. Everything was SO fresh and delicious. Corn beef hash was out of this world and who doesn't love scali toast! Quick service too, a well oiled machine.

The best breakfast. Grand slam is incredible. It includes eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns with pancakes or French toast. Also order an order of their scali bread toast. Wait staff friendly and fast. Always their to top off your coffee.

This is my favorite diner in Watertown. It truly feels like a NY/NJ diner and the food is on par with that promise and being from NY, I know what I'm talking about. I grew up with diners! It's packed every weekend for breakfast/brunch so go early!

When visiting Boston the New Yorker for breakfast/brunch is a must for us. Discovered this gem about 8 years ago and glad to say since then nothing has changed. Excellent service, wonderful atomosphere and to top it all off plenty of lovely food at a great price. LOVE IT!

New Yorker Diner is the local version of an IHop. We find the food is much better and the service is great. Open late night, so a good stop after you had a few drinks.

I really like this place, good service, great prices but I am really put off by the seating. They really need to get their ripped seats fixed before I go back
