You can keep your fancy restaurants. I'm a Jersey boy and grew up with diner culture. We are known as the Diner Capital of the World but of course you can find lots of other fantastic diners all around the USA, and some in foreign nations too.

Living in Philadelphia has many perks - eating breakfast at Morning Glory is one of them!

598 Riverside Ave, Lyndhurst, NJ 07071, USA
Another of my favorite diners, which is close to Newark, NJ. This one is right next to the river and with a full bar you can have a bloody mary with your bacon and eggs at midnight!

White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986, USA
For the best hamburger your likely to encounter in West Virginia, stop at this little diner along main street in White Sulphur Springs. They also serve breakfast all day. Inside there is room for maybe 8-10 people, tops!

New Jersey is said to be the diner capital of the world and with more than just about any other place, you'd be foolish to argue. This diner, the Jefferson, is located in Lake Hopatcong in Morris County. I end up here just about every year when I...

929 E Pierce St, Phoenix, AZ 85006, USA
Welcome Diner may be new to downtown Phoenix but it has quite a history. Built in the 1940's in Kansas, it was trucked over to Arizona where it operated on Route 66 for 25 years before it moved to its current location on Roosevelt. By partnering...

3322 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70115, USA
The Garden District has a lot of things going for it but I'd put Slim Goodies at the top of the list. They're renowned for their sweet potato pancakes (light, fluffy, amazing) and clever names for their breakfast mashups like the above Jewish...

1031 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306, USA
Many late nights out in Atlanta end up in the inevitable search for food, and one of the most popular destinations for a post-bar bite is Majestic Diner. They've been serving "food that pleases," as advertised on the sign, since 1929. Breakfast...

500 Passaic Ave, East Newark, NJ 07029, USA
A highly recommended stop for a cuppa joe is Tops Diner in Newark, NJ. The food is excellent and they have a giant selection of cakes as well.

Newbury Rd, Kingsclere, Newbury RG20 4TA, UK
Nelson's Diner was a great place to stumble upon while heading from Belgium to Wales recently. The decor is very American and the milkshakes are just like back home! The location is a bit off the beaten bath if you're just doing the usual tourist...
Save Place
36 7th St W, St Paul, MN 55102, USA
Mickey's is an old-school, rail car-style, 24-hr diner located in downtown Saint Paul. It's a famous landmark and serves up the best greasy spoon food in the area. The staff is notoriously gruff but they can also be pretty sweet and cook good food...

Newbury Rd, Kingsclere, Newbury RG20 4TA, UK
While driving from Belgium to Wales, I was on the Newbury Road in England and spotted what reminded me of back home in New Jersey. It was a traditional aluminium diner! It wasn't the true diner but a British cafe building modified to look like...
