Went for breakfast with my son and we both left disappointed, hungry and smelly. Don't get me wrong, I love diners and when I walked in I was hopeful. Especially after reading other reviews. Home fries tasted like that had been sitting in oil for a long time, toast wasn't really toasted and pancakes tasted like there was way too... More

The Lantern is an old fashioned tiny place with old style booths and old style hotshot shaped low bar with bar seats like from an old luncheonette. The man who cooks is true best, with tiny working space he works miracles.. Always attentive servers, friendly and homey and the coffee is fresh, oatmeal is homemade and wonderful.... But they run...

Lantern Brunch is a staple in Andover Center- the crowd is a nice mix of regulars and visitors. I have had several breakfasts that have been uniformly delicious- all the standards, plus daily specials like florentine or asparagus omelets. My only less than excellent comments concern the slow service. The waitstaff are very pleasant- but the small kitchen limits the... More

This tiny diner was reminiscent of the 50's. Simple grilled sandwiches, chilies, soups, etc. My grilled cheese came with potato chips, rather than French fries, and for only $6, it was quite a bargain. No credit cards accepted, so be warned. Quick service and the sandwich was served piping hot.

Feels like being back in the 1950s. Not only the decor, but the staff are pretty old. Simple, you get what you pay for. No frills. Nice to find family-run places still in business. Tired of so many corporate restaurant chains.

This place never dissappoints. Unlike so many restaurants that try to pull off fine dining and fail, this place knows its diner niche and hits it out of the park.

Not many left like this. Family run, classic, quick breakfast menu. In and out quickly, without spending too much. The new building owners are trying to run them out- hope they don't succeed!
