A must see for Seinfeld fans, easy to get to from 110th st station, the booths are very similar to the tv show (although no doubt no filming ever took place there), plenty of memorabilia on the walls. Also, the food is good, large portions...More

If you’re a fan of Seinfeld this is a must. Prices are decent and the food is good. Service is pretty fast as well. They only accept cash so make sure you have cash on hand. I do believe they had an ATM in the...More

One of the best burgers I have ever had hands down. Was stuck at the bar because it was packed but still received excellent service!

Eggs any style except poached, cooked surprisingly carefully. Toast is made with cheap commercial bread, “jam” is in little plastic tubs that contain no fruit, only chemicals. Home fries are delicious, and Heinz ketchup bottles are on each table. Service is blindingly fast! You get...More

THIS DINER DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. CASH ONLY! It was fun to see the exterior used in Seinfeld episodes to film Monk’s Diner. However, the interior is not the same. It is quite small and dated, but seemed clean. There is Seinfeld memorabilia throughout...More

Tom's is the typical American diner were you can enjoy a most classical brunch. We had a Lumberjack - if you are very hungry go for it - pancakes and fried eggs. If you love pouched eggs just be sure to be there very early,...More

While I am aware that only the outside appearance has any connection to the show, as a fan you have to go. As you walk along the street and it comes into view, you cannot but think of all of the wacky things that were...More

I see someone else explained how to get there. However, Tom's Diner is REALLY not worth the effort. It is cheap (plastic cups) and outrageously expensive ($8 minimum) at the same time If you plan to walk around Harlem and... More
