Before the New York City Marathon, I decided to go to the Tick Tock Diner. I’ve walked by the Tick Tock before, and this was a diner I wanted to go too before the marathon.
When Tara and I arrived around lunchtime, it was crowded, but we quickly got a seat. In fact, we got the most corner booth, but it was nice to stay private.
The outside of Tick Tock is bright, shiny, and stands out. It’s directly across the street from Penn Station, and you can’t miss it.
It’s the largest diner in Manhattan. There are plenty of booties, and tables, and even a full-length bar.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, but I could have used more refills. I also appreciated the personalized mugs.
The Tick Tock Diner has plenty of options from breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. There are several healthy salad options and huge burgers too.
I decided to order the Tick Tock Pancake Trio which came with a banana pancake, cinnamon, and chocolate chip. Plus there was delicious cream cheese frosting too. To be honest, they were some of the best pancakes I’ve ordered!
I was happy the food came out quickly but the waiter barely came over, and it took a long time to get the check.
For my coffee and pancakes, the cost was $15.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come back?
I liked the Tick Tock Diner, and it’s one of my favorite diners in the city.
