Pearl Street Diner (Manhatten)
I should tell you how I planned to go the Pearl Street Diner all along, but that would be a lie. While trying to figure out the train system in New York, I missed my stopped and ended up at the end of the line in the Financial District and near Battery Park and the Staten Island Ferry.  I was hungry and tired so I decided to stop at the Pearl Street Diner on the corner of Pearl and Fletcher Street. I’m glad I did. The Pearl Street Diner is a no-frills diner in New York City.

Pearl Street Diner (Manhatten) Atmosphere: A
From the exterior, you can imagine the Pearl Street Diner is a step back in time. It’s built into a building (or maybe a building built around it). The inside of the Pearl Street Diner seats only about 20-30 people. There are plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. When I got there, the waitress ushered me to a small table so other parties could use the bigger ones.

Pearl Street Diner (Manhatten) Coffee:

The Pearl Street Diner coffee was brewed hot and fresh and the waitress made sure I had plenty of refills.

Pearl Street Diner (Manhatten) Food: C
The Pearl Street Diner menu has everything a stereotypical diner would have. There are plenty of breakfast specials.  I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for, just that I was hungry and tired. I decided to order the blueberry pancakes with whipped cream. The pancakes were good, but it was a small portion and I could have used 3X the amount. I would order them again, but I would probably order something else with them.

For my blueberry pancakes and coffee, the cost was $12. It was a tad expensive considering the size, but then again, it was New York City.
