The Tick Tock Diner is the quintessential American diner. You’ve got the 50s look and feel with the hubcabs, chrome and comfy banquettes, and a cheap menu to boot.
I stumbled upon Tick Tock Diner on my way to Macy’s on 34th street, and have been coming back here whenever I get a chance. This place is super busy in the morning, but if you want to come and have a coffee and eat a piece of pie in the afternoon while reading a book, this was the perfect place.
You’ll get your typical American comfort food but also have Italian, Greek and a bit of Tex Mex thrown in. And with an all day breakfast, a ton of omelettes and pancakes you can’t beat it. But all in all it is a diner. Don’t expect gourmet cuisine kids, stick with the burger and something greasy.
