Cozy home style place, good food and service.

This is a very small restaurant with a cozy feel. The food is very good and the service is terrific. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here and have never been disappointed.

Wallingfords Best Breakfast, lemon ricotta pancakes are the bomb and don't get me started on the corned beef hash! Great staff, family atmosphere, don't let the Sunday lines keep you away, it moves quick and worth the wait or do like we do and go early!

Breakfast anywhere is either OK, or great. Dad's has a very good breakfast. You never feel rushed. Family atmosphere. Prices are fair and competitive with other places in the area. They are always busy and a favorite of the locals.

Decided to eat here based on such favorable reviews/rating on TripAdvisor, but in this instance those who gave it such high remarks were terribly wrong. The food was bland (canned mushrooms anyone?) and way over priced ($70 for a family of four for a basic breakfast). Sorry Dad, but my recommendation is for those looking for a good breakfast to...

If you are going on a Sunday you will most likely have to wait but I guarantee it will be worth it! I have been here about 5 times and you always get an excellent home cooked meal with a smile!

We go to Dad's almost every Sunday after church and there is always a line. I don't mind waiting because the food is always delicious and the service is always friendly. We tried Rick's when we first moved to Wallingford and we waited in line. Food was okay but we were squished into a tiny area with no room for... More

Nice mom & pop type old- fashioned diner with some interesting selections. The chocolate covered bacon pancakes sounded interesting, but I got the taco omelet. Mix of table and counter seating. Good food, good prices, and clean bathroom.

You are pretty much guaranteed for have to wait in line for a seat for breakfast. Its worth it though the service and the food is great. Have been here many times, brought friends and family. I have not tried lunch but im looking forward to it!
