Adu - so funny you post this - we live around the corner from Good Stuff - it's been open a year or so - and up until last weekend, we never bothered with it. My teenager swims at 6:00AM at Baruch on Saturdays, and we're always looking for breakfast places that can feed him at 8:30 - he needs a lot of calories, FAST. and CHEAP. We usually schlep over to the Veselka, but last week we tried Good Stuff. Very positive reviews from the teen - excellent omelettes, good home fries, fast service. All you want in a diner.

We live close to Veselka but we were walking across town and just decided to drop into Good Stuff.

I don't think they're exclusive to NYC. I can't speak about other cities, but we have lots of them in Milwaukee.

For an upbeat Greek dining experience (but not a "Greek Diner") check out Uncle Nick's on 8th Avenue. The grilled octopus was delicious, the salad was huge and fresh, etc.

Sorry, 9th Avenue--not 8th.

There are a lot of great Greek Diners in Manhattan. If you're a tourist, you probably don't want to leave Manhattan just for some diner food. But, one of the best things about the Greek Diners is that they're a cheap food alternative. To find the best cheap restaurants, try using They have almost 2000 restaurants in NYC where you can get a meal for $10 and under. A lot of them are even under $6. For a specific diner, I like Cosmic Diner which is pretty close to Times Square

Though I don't think it's what the OP is really looking for, I can second the Uncle Nick's reccommendation. YUM. Cheap, too.
