Don’t Forget About This Lovable Retro Diner in White Plains

The true star of Post Road is this no-frills diner that gets right to the point.

With açai bowls, exotically flavored doughnuts, and chia seed pudding taking over breakfast trends, it’s time to take the most important meal back to its roots. Classic food, fast and cheap, is the pillar of White Plains’ Star Diner — and that’s exactly why it’s so great.

The nostalgic décor makes the food that much more appetizing: Red-and-white vinyl benches and chrome counters are a throwback, and coffee cups are still printed with local ads. Booths are full at every hour of the day with patrons digging into dishes cooked to order on the griddle behind the counter. Laminated posters on the wall above the stove suggest some favorites from the menu, like stacks of warm, buttery pancakes served with crackling bacon.

Our recommendation is to keep it classic. The menu is straightforward and doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. Fluffy eggs served with crisp home fries and toast are the perfect comfort food for any hour of the day (Star Diner is open 24/7). Pair it with a bottomless cup of hot coffee, and it’s pretty much what breakfast dreams are made of. If lunch is more your speed, the aroma of juicy burgers is always wafting from the stovetop.

No matter the meal, budget is hardly a concern. Customers can order two eggs, any style, with the aforementioned home fries and toast for only $3.95. The classic cheeseburgers are just $4.25, and beloved mozzarella sticks are $5.25. (That’s almost one-third the price of other popular county diners.) Even with the lower price tag, taste is never compromised, and you will certainly never leave hungry.

Save room for dessert: The thick, rich milkshakes, served in frosted metal cups, cost just $3.50. (The childlike anticipation of getting one is free of charge.) Whether it’s to hang out with friends, grab some late-night eats, or for a quick breakfast, there is never a wrong reason to head to Star Diner.
