Last month I had the opportunity to go to the Orangetown Classic Diner in Orangetown, NY. I know, occasionally I make it to the other states for diners too. In fact, for the next few Sundays, I have several out of state diners. We were up that way for the weekend, and I heard that the Orangetown Classic Diner was a good stop. It definitely did not disappoint.
The Orangetown Classic Diner is everything you expect in a classic diner. The outside is large, metallic, and shiny. The inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. There is a massive dessert case and dessert bar that I stared at for my entire meal.
The coffee was good but not great. With all of the homemade desserts, I expected homemade whipped cream. Other then that, it was good coffee.
The menu at the Orangetown Classic Diner is relatively standard for many diners. There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for and ultimately decided to order a Reuben. I can’t remember ever ordering one at a diner, so it seemed like a good idea.
When it came out, it had plenty of meat. It wasn’t the best or the worst Rueban, but it was filling.
Our waitress was friendly, but she was loud, and she was having issues with another employee. We could hear across the restaurant. She was always friendly to us. However, it was just a strange situation.
Orangetown Classic Diner is well known for their desserts, so I wanted to get something. Ultimately I chose the rainbow cake with ice cream. I do not have any regrets. The cake was one of the best diner cakes I’ve had in a while.
There was a fruity topping underneath which tasted great.
For my sandwich, coffee, and dessert the cost was about $25.
I liked the Orangetown Classic Diner, and if I’m ever in the area again, I would definitely go back.
