Van Dorn Diner, Dining Like It's 1950

Van Dorn Diner is a family-owned, 1950s-style diner in Alexandria, VA. We offer an exquisite array of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options that will take you back to the 50s.

And so will our ambience.

Van Dorn Diner has a gorgeous spherical counter right in front of the grill. So you can grab a seat, chat with the friendly waitstaff and watch your food being made β€” all to the sounds of Elvis, The Beatles and more hit artists from our favorite era.
