Great Selection – I love this spot, there are so many good things on the menu I can never decide what to eat. It gives you that diner feel but definitely with better then diner food. The service is always great too, wait staff always has a smile on their face.

Never order delivery!!! – Never order delivery from EJs. My food came uncooked and soggy. When I called to complain, they did not believe me that my food came from EJs since they could not find the ticket and gave me a hard time about sending me something else. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

A classic breakfast specialist caters to children and singles with equal success. – In Short
This chain of upscale diners serves big helpings of American comfort food at reasonable prices. The interior looks like a Rockwell painting, with classic blue-and-white diner decor and an old-fashioned lunch counter. Regulars love the oatmeal and granola with fresh fruit and berries, and the almond-corn-flake French toast is a signature. Typical diner food makes the rest of the menu--burgers, chili, buffalo wings and peanut butter and jelly for the kids.

very bad cereal! – I'm not quite sure why the editorial review of EJ's raves about the cereal. Seriously, it seemed like it came out of a box: a little gray and dry. Not at all like the scrumptious granola at Chat 'n' Chew's!! However, all the other breakfast foods seemed great, especially considering all the below-par diners on the Upper East Side. I drooled over the crunchy french toast...

STROLLERS AND COFFEE – IT'S TRUE. EJ'S HAS GREAT PANCAKES. EJ'S HAS DECENT SALADS. THE FOOD IS CLEAN AND NOT TOO COMPLICATED. THERE IS A DEFINITE EFFORT TO MAKE DOWN-HOME FOOD ALBEIT THE LUNCHEONETTE KIND. THE LINES ARE OUT THE DOORS ON SATURDAYS BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY PLACE ON THE EASTSIDE TO GET THAT DINER-ESQUE ARCHIE COMIC BOOK BREAKFAST FEEL. EJ'S SUCCEEDS IN ALL ASPECTS INCLUDING SOLID SERVICE AND EXCELLENT COFFEE CAKE.

Busy, but worth the wait – Great selection of food!

Several yummy looking vegetarian suggestions. I would love to go back to try more.

Big fat challaha toast....was great!

Pretty good – Although it's just your basic diner, EJs makes an effort with the addition of fresh fruits to their dishes. Yes, it is crowded, but what do you expect from a family favorite.

Please close this place down – Terrible, over-rated food. Waits that sometimes exceed an hour. Harried, surly and unhelpful staff. Strollers, whining kids and dirty, slippery tables.

Makes cooking breakfast at home a great option.

Crowded, but get over it! – The wait is worth it, and so is the crowded seating. The crunchy french toast is a MUST, the granola with fruit is great, milkshakes and apple crumb dessert should not be passed by. No matter what, you will find something that will satisfy on this diner-like menu.
