Like I always say, some of the always been right under my nose! Hyde Park Café, located at 2301 Hyde Park Blvd in Niagara Falls, is no exception!

With just a handful of tables and a counter to sit at, you felt at home no matter where you sat.

On this particular trip we went for breakfast and it was really (like really really) good.

The owner, whose name is Tyrell, was cooking to music andboppi ng up and down while he was preparing meals. It’s as if he was making the bacon on the skillet dance!

His beautiful daughter, Kile, greeted customers and passed out silverware. She was a phenomenal helper.

I chose the “James,” which is a 7 oz. NY strip steak with eggs, home fries and toast.

I also had a side of chocolate chip pancakes and cheesy grits just so I could get a taste of everything.

The pancakes were rich and chips not overwhelm the taste buds. You could still actually appreciate the pancake themselves, which a lot of times you just aren’t able to do anymore.



The steak was a perfect size; not at all the typical bite-sized piece you usually get with a steak and eggs combo. It was a true NY strip cooked to a perfect medium.

my roughly cut home fries cooked with peppers and onions. The “grits” were Oooooooooooooo so good!!!!

The combination of the grits and tangy cheese creates the perfect balance of creaminess and flavor.

This dish is truly a stick to your ribs good old-fashioned southern staple that y’all need to come on down and try (I said this in my southern accent out loud while writing it).

The Hyde Park Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday’s and truly represents home cooking at its finest.

You can dine in, take out, or order for delivery, which means there is absolutely no excuse for you not to run in and give this no frills, old-fashioned, little diner a try!

When you do, be sure to say hi to Kile and Terell and tell them Jamie sent you!!
