We travel up to the Catskills from NYC and always look forward to a meal at the Phoenicia Diner. Great breakfast especially the skillets, though I miss the one that had bacon, potatoes and cheese. But still a top notch meal! Definitely worth a visit.

Stop here and eat. Even if your not hungry. Its fantastic! From the looks of the diner you would expect to see Flo serving grits but instead you feel like your brunching in bushwick. Great local items on the menu.

I was surprised that we were going out to a diner for breakfast with my foodie friends, but we do as we are told. Well, there are booths and a campy motif, but the food is far above traditional diner fair. Locally sourced, fresh ingredients make old favorites more delicious and appealing. The Benedicts were just right. I had lunch... More

We stopped here on the way to Belleayre for breakfast, the food was amazing. The Interstate 77 Revisited Skillet was soooooo good. Staff was friendly and it was nice and comfortable inside. Definitely recommend!
