Diners & Coffee Shops – Mike’s Picks

I’m definitely a diner junkie.  But specifically for breakfast.  I find the best way to start my day is to have another human serve me.  And the endless coffee refills are really appreciated. While we’ve lost a lot of great spots like Big Nick’s and Popover Cafe, the Upper West Side is still a great diner destination.  Keep reading to find yourself some great Upper West Side diners.

For those who visit Upper Manhattan:  check out these diners in Washington Heights!

Upper West Side Diners


267 Amsterdam Ave

Located at 72nd and Amsterdam.  What makes this place stand out is the incredibly fast and friendly service. Let’s start with fast.  I’ll order my eggs over easy with ham, and it will literally come out in thirty seconds.  It’s like they knew I was on my way.  And as soon as my water or coffee is close to being finished, they arrive swiftly for a refill.  The friendly service really does make a difference to me – especially first thing in the morning.  They always remember my name, even if I haven’t been there in months.  And they always offer me a newspaper, which I politely decline.  I need my coffee first.

Utopia is one of my most frequent Upper West Side breakfast destinations.
