Best diner around!

My husband and I eat here often...it's our go-to place when I don't feel like cooking or I want "breakfast". The food is good diner food (great soup) and is always fresh. The staff are great and very accommodating and I recommend it easily!

Can't say enough good about this place. It is conveniently located off Exit 21 of I91. The menu is extensive and everything is delicious with large portions at reasonable prices. They serve breakfast all day including mid-afternoon and it's all made to order. Service is prompt even when they are packed.

Requested it on multi- grain toast. Delicious , as has everything else we've eaten here over the years. I recommend the avocado eggs Benedict highly as well.

This long time diner is conveniently located on rt 372 right off 91 and 9. The food is edible but that's pretty much as far as it goes. There are better stops for breakfast within a few miles and many other options for dinner or lunch.

Dropped in for supper the other evening. Tried their Shepard's pie. It was a nice meal. I'd enjoy it again. The service was nice. The restaurant is a down to earth mom and pop type establishment. Their food was reasonably priced. They seem to have adequate parking and easy access. I will likely revisit them in the future.

If you find yourself heading North or South on Highway 91 turn off and visit the Cromwell Diner; you will be more than satisfied. The thing that stood out firstly was the clear, colorful, non-repetitive menu items. We had breakfast on the way up heading North and lunch heading South 3 days later. The fresh ingredients, service, cleanliness, and prices... More

I love eating at diners. Usually, the food is good and the coffee hot. Menus tend to be the same and that isn't a bad thing. The Cromwell Diner is a large establishment, nicely appointed and holds out a promising air. We were seated promptly and our waitress, Erica, came over and took our beverage orders while we looked over... More
