This was by far the most disappointing restaurant we went to during our recent 2 week stay in the NYC area. Because of all the hyped up reviews about this place we took transit from Manhattan to try it out, upon arriving there were a...More

Almost walked past Toms and I’m so glad we didn’t! Amazing real American diner. We had coffee, eggs with home fries and turkey bacon and cinnamon bun pancakes. It was all amazing, the pancakes were so fluffy! Huge portions and reasonably priced.

What a discovery.. Recommend by someone who used to live in Crown Heights who was spot on with his advice. Traditional place with good honest food at a reasonable price. Great staff, be prepared to queue outside and round the block at busy times.

Friendly place where you can have a big pile of tasty pancakes with bacon and unlimited refills of coffee for around $12. We have visited Tom’s Restaurant around 9:30am and it wasn’t too busy. Staff were really friendly and attentive.

Yes sandwiches are available, as is just about everything, I saw a fitness freak order a plate of just broccolli! Seats around 40 to 50 in two parts.
