Lorenzo’s is the best place in town for a great breakfast. I’m a personal fan of their sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches and home fries. Locally owned and operated, very honest too.. you can tell Matt(owner) really wants his customers to be happy. Try them out, you won’t be disappointed, I promise you that!

Excellent breakfast. The staff members were friendly and attentive. Service was very quick. They have the absolute best homemade corned beef hash I’ve ever had, and their french toast is pretty great as well!

Been here a couple times now. The staff is always nice, friendly and ready to assist. The food is also good as well. Normally, I’ve only gotten breakfast foods. French toast and pancakes are awesome.

Breakfast sandwiches are excellent! I had a sausage egg and cheese on a hard roll, added the grilled onion upcharge, and I loved it. Solid takeout, wrapped in foil, stayed hot while we drove back to Glenville!

    So good!!  Found this place by accident for my son’s birthday breakfast!  Hash was great!  Love the home fries with onions!  The absolute star of the morning was the sausage gravy with biscuits!  Service was great too!

This was my first visit and is a total YELP discovery.  Thank you YELPers for the reviews.

The food was outstanding, the service was prompt and friendly while the food was plentiful as well as TASTY.

I will definitely return to sample the other menus items.  Perhaps next time I will try lunch?  This is a total Friends & Family recommendation establishment. I am so going to Bookmark this restaurant!!!

    I stumbled on this place looking for a quick bite, I had the roasted turkey sub made with fresh homemade bread and an amazing homemade Italian dressing. I had it with a side tossed salad with the homemade dressing. Matt the owner is awesome and this is by far the best sub I have had ever. Price is good! Food is Great!
Definitely a place to check out in Schenectady.

    No matter what you order, you will love it. Excellent choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. High quality, delicious food made by wonderful people. You simply can’t beat it! Particularly love the chicken soup, fish fry, chicken parm, biscuits and gravy, and breakfast potatoes!

    I really enjoy eating there. The breakfast is awesome and is served all day. Tried the bone in wings they were banging as well. Found nothing wrong with the food our service. The only drawback was that you come out smelling like you cooked the food . I recommend this place to anyone that’s hungry you won’t be disappointed.

    What a find for breakfast.  They have a great selection of choices and cook items to your liking- great crisp bacon.  I particularly like the bowl of grits – home comfort. Prices are quite reasonable. You can tell they have devoted regulars, but I have always found a booth.  The waitresses are super friendly.

    The Best Home Fries

    We were seated quickly by a very friendly young man but had to wait awhile before ordering and to get our food. The waiter was not friendly. We had eggs and home fries. The food was delicious. Cleared my plate.

    Nice atmosphere, clean and huge portions

    I found this place because it is near where I am currently working. The food is excellent and so is the service. The sandwiches for lunch are huge, and the potato salad is wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant. If you want a nice clean place that has the ambiance of a higher class diner, then try this place.
