I am not a diner person, generally, but the Trolley Car Diner is not your average diner. It's really clean, for one! The food is absolutely delicious! Naturally, being a diner, breakfast is served all day, and my daughter and I typically go on evenings after work when I don't feel like cooking. The portions are huge, so she and I are able to share an order of pancakes! They also have turkey bacon and it doesn't cost extra. Oh, and I can not forget to tell you all about the milkshakes...thick, creamy and so good. So, so good! I haven't tried the "adult" milkshakes, yet, since I always share with my daughter, but I've heard those are amazing, too!
I've been to the diner many times and I must say I love it! Their burgers are delicious and I go every wednesday because they're only 3.50! I've had good dinner entrees and the servers are always friendly. And on game nights I stop by and pick up my six pack because I can pick and choose my beers!

They have the best breakfast at reasonable prices and the staff is really friendly. I love that they have a deli too! I put in my deli order while I'm dining and it's ready for me when I leave....and they put it on the same check! It's just too easy! Oh, they have really fresh meats and cheeses and over 75 beers!

I have gone to the trolley car diner since it opened in 2000. I was excited to have a diner in the area, great staff, great food.......But now, construction is on, wait has tripled, new owner, staff turn over, sloppy, slow, rude, customer friendly please(don't make me laugh).....watch for discolorations in your food....would not put it past them now.
If your lucky and get someone from the old staff (you will get the same great service) if not watch out.
Elfant....how could you do that to the community....or was it just business??

Great Trolley Car! Zero trans fat deep frying oil. Loved the New Menu as in 6/15/07. The soft shell crabs are delicious, very tasty and different. Great experience! My kids loved it. Kids' frriendly place. The Bussboy was a little loud cleaning tables, but the music was great and made up for it.

Well, maybe Trolley Car Diner isn't that bad. It was very easy to find, but parking spaces (at least on Sunday morning) were scarce. If I went there with a large group, we would've waited a long time for a table. Instead, me and my boyfriend sat at the counter. We weren't served promptly or quickly. I can't really blame them: Sunday Brunch time is busy! The menu consists of typical diner fare. I had eggs over easy, grits, and (er, microwavable) sausage and burnt toast. I haven't had much luck with diners in Philadelphia. Stay clear of Trolley Car Diner if you are looking for prompt seating, fast diner service, and hot breakfast food.
