These 5 Awesome Diners In Buffalo Will Make You Feel Right At Home
Certain occasions may call for fine dining or exotic cuisine, but on some days, nothing but good old-fashioned classic diner fare will do. When you need quality comfort food in a nostalgic setting, just head to one of Buffalo’s beloved diners. These unassuming eateries never disappoint.
1. Lake Effect Diner (3165 Main St.)
Lake Effect was made famous by the TV show
Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, but here in Buffalo, it's always been an icon. It’s one of the last dining-car style diners in the country, everything is made fresh to order, and the dining room is fantastic since it has been fully restored to its 1952 glory.
2. Nick's Place (504 Amherst St.)
This neighborhood diner is easy to miss, but don't let its humble exterior fool you. The hearty breakfast and lunch food here is delicious and will keep you full all day.
3. Bertha's Diner (1430 Hertel Ave.)
The space inside Bertha's is limited, but if you manage to score a table (and they are worth waiting for), you'll love the 50s-style ambiance and piping hot breakfast fare. If you love Eggs Benedict, you won't want to pass them up here.
4. Swan Street Diner (700 Swan St.)
The Swan Street Diner has some of the best breakfast (and meatloaf melts) in town, served from one of the early Sterling Company diner cars made by the J.B. Judkins Company. You can even rent this diner out for your next special occasion!
5. Amy's Place (3234 Main St.)
Amy's Place serves a little bit of everything: classic diner fare, Middle Eastern entrees, and plenty of options for vegetarians. It might look like a hole-in-the-wall, but inside you'll find some delicious delicacies.
