Downtown Diner is one of your best bets for a filling, delicious, and affordable breakfast in downtown Flagstaff. If you are looking to skip the overpriced trendy options in favor of an old-fashioned, home style breakfast cafe, then Downtown Diner is definitely a wise way to go.
Downtown Diner offers your standard diner style breakfast menu. The food is good, the portions are large, and the prices are cheap compared to other options nearby. They offer breakfast all day too so you can fill up either post or pre hike depending on how early you want to get up.
If you are in the mood for a classic breakfast, try out the breakfast special (served all day). For just 6 bucks, you will get 2 eggs, hashbrowns and toast - the perfect meal to fill you (without overstuffing you) up before you hit the trails.
For anyone with a bigger appetite, the Hungry Man is definitely recommended. For just 10 bucks, you will receive a heaping pile of breakfast food including 2 pancakes or french toast, 2 eggs, hash browns, a biscuit and gravy, and 2 bacon strips. Bring your appetite for this one! For anyone heading out for an intense morning of hiking, snowshoeing, or biking, the Hungry Man special will definitely replenish you after your high altitude adventures!
Service was efficient, although not as friendly as you would expect at a small town diner. Drinks were refilled quickly. Food did not take long at all. Downtown Diner is a good place for anyone who wants to get in and out for a quick breakfast before enjoying the beautiful wilderness around Flagstaff. They open early (6am) so you can get to Snowbowl or Hwy 180 before the traffic starts to build up!
The ambiance at Downtown Diner is cozy and relaxed. The back room is nice as it is a bit quieter and you will have a relaxing fish
tank to gaze at while waiting for your food.
Overall, Downtown Diner is a good choice for anyone seeking classic diner food at affordable prices. You will not find anything flashy or fancy here, just decent home-cooked food which you can afford.
