Skyline Diner

IMG 2749c


Skyline Diner was recently written up in the Times Union, and I've been meaning to try it too.  The TU reviewer wrote about a great expierence with eggs there.  This small diner in Rensselaer, NY has recently been renovated and looks directly at the Albany Skyline, just minutes away from downtown.

Skyline serves full Breakfast from 7 am to 11 am daily and then nearly everything from the breakfast menu is available until closing, at 3 pm.   There is a seperate lunch menu with standard fare.   The server pleasantly explained that items like Waffles, Steak and Eggs, and Breakfast Specials/Combos are not available after 11, when I asked.

I ordered the eggs benedict, a coffee, and a water.   The tables only had sugar on them, not splenda, equal, or sweet n low, which was unusual but were all available upon request.    The food was very good to great.  The side potatoes were just average, but overall, the food was fast to arrive, good portion size, and fresh tasting, I would say 4 forks, and possibly the best Hollandaise Sauce I have ever tasted. 

The service was a little dodgy at times, as I didn't have my coffee filled promptly or when needed, and then when the check was presented, I noticed I was charged higher on my bill then the menu showed for my order. 

When I paid the bill, the hostess/cashier asked how everything was.  I said great food, good service, but mentioned that I thought I may've been charged different (higher) for my meal then the menu showed. She shrugged, replied "oh yea", and rang me out at the higher price. 

For this, I score them overall 3 forks, but I will be trying them again.
