Long Time Diner for a Good Reason

The 91 Diner has been in business for over 25 years and there is a good reason for that longevity. It has great diner food. I lived in the area 15 years ago and went there. During a recent visit to the New Haven area we took a friend for breakfast. We all loved our meals. I had french toast... read more

We're from out of town and came here because it was right off the interstate. It was a fantastic choice! The food was delecious and the service was quick. If I'm ever back I'm town I will definitely eat here again

My husband and I met at this diner after work. We have lived in this area for over 30 years and love the consistent food quality! The ladies provide friendly service and assist with menu questions or recommendations. They have daily specials and home made soups. The burgers are fantastic! Everything was cooked to order, served promptly, and reasonably priced.... More

The decor of this place is confusing. Is it a Chinese place, since it has a pagoda on top? Is it "American", since the outside is sort of nondescript? Is it Greek? Italian? 1970? Maybe 1980s? How many textures and patterns are in this place? Anyways... We happened upon this place for breakfast when our original destination was closed. Pretty... More

I stopped at this diner to have a quick breakfast. it is right off the I91 South & Rt 17. this quaint diner still has all the furnishings of the 1960's-1970's, like time stood still. Had a breakfast special 2 eggs, Home fries and Rye Toast with Coffee, Juice all for $4.95. Everything was good, but what really tasted amazing... More

This is my husband and I's favorite place to go for breakfast every weekend! It has been our staple for the past 4 years! I typically get a breakfast platter (eggs or pancakes, can't go wrong with either) and I get french fries because they are cooked just the way I like! My husband usually gets their chicken wraps and... More

I have never been upset enough to write a bad review on TripAdvisor, but this experience was so unreal, I had to share. I was in town with my family and 2 other families on a Sunday morning (14 total people). We were greeted by a nice young man who seated us in a back room. As soon as the... More
