City Limits Diner is a step ahead of most diners. The food is consistently good. I've been there dozens of times and have never been disappointed. The only con is that it's a little pricey compared to most.

I love this place. It is a diner with an upscale look and food that is better than all diners. Many good menu choices for healthy eating and they bake their own bread. Not the best service but it is a decent place. No other diner like it around in this area. The best diner I ever went to was... More

Delicious breakfast Saturday morning at this fairly authentic but diner in Stamford, CT. They have everything on the menu, and prices are pretty reasonable for the area. Had the breakfast special which was a turkey, ham and cheese egg Benedict on a homemade biscuit. It was delicious and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Only downer was that Hollandaise sauce was...

Stayed at the Laquinta which the diner is connected to so it was very convenient and the food really is great. Everytime my coworkers and I ate there service was horribly slow. Usually took a good 10-15 minutes just to get your order taken whether it was busy or not. It seemed like the wait staff would disappear until you... More

Great location just off Rt. 95, large facility, seemed popular with locals and travelers, but breakfast was disappointing. Our party of two was quickly seated, then neglected. Hostess had to track down a waitress. Country breakfast with copious meats but undercooked hash browns and barely toasted toast, served with meager mini tub of apricot jam. Signature City egg sandwich on... More

City Limits has one of the best Sunday brunch menus in Stamford. On one hand, that is not saying a whole lot, since it is difficult to find a good breakfast/brunch restaurant in this town. However, City Limits does a good job with consistent good quality, outstanding service and variety.
