Whether you want breakfast (in the morning or for dinner), a midday meal, supper, or snacks, the Bedford Diner’s extensive menu offers lots of fabulous frugal finds that fall within our $5 per person Cheap Eats budget.
Start with the award-winning chili, which comes served in a cup or a bowl ($2.99 or $3.99, respectively). But why settle for that when you can glam it up? Enhance a plate of plain ol’ cheese fries with it ($4.99) or get the chili on a Coney Island Dog for $2.59. For an extra 50 cents, you can even add cheese to the latter.
Both full and short stacks of pancakes come in under $5, as does the powdered sugar-topped Belgian waffle. Cinnamon raisin french toast that smells absolutely amazing — and tastes just as good — costs $4.99 for two rich slices. A variety of egg dishes in various combinations with toast, hash browns, and/or a choice of bacon, sausage, or ham range from $2.99 to $4.49.
If you just want a sweet treat, desserts include baklava ($2.99) and rice pudding ($2.29) made with favorite Syrian recipes from the restaurant’s owners. Classic shakes and floats cost only $3.99.
Find good food at fair prices at the Bedford Diner, where customers are welcomed like members of the family.
