This is an old fashion diner with very limited seating and has the 25 cent jukebox which my grandchildren enjoyed. The pancakes were good and my daughter in law said the garbage was excellent.

Cindy's is wonderful: the food and atmosphere. Old style diner with VERY limited seating. When you go, get garbage, but have him flatten it more like a pancake, makes it taste even better!

This is one of the best places for Breakfast in town. They are willing to serve the the entire world "15 Diners" at a time. :-). Recommended Dish is the "Garbage" it their signature Dish. This place is also Home to the G.C. Murphy's Donut Machine!

Cindy's has just reopened at its new home on Berry Street! Great food for breakfast and a place to make new friends and see our friends who work there. It's a MUST to get a bit of nostalgia . The donut maker still workd from Murphy's !

Put a quarter in the jukebox and crank out a 60's tune because baby you are traveling back in time at Cindy's! You better be slim enough to fit in the small space between the mounted stools and the counter top that holds only about 15 people inside, because this thing was built long ago before we all ate WAY...

A more authentic diner would be hard to find. They specialise in 'garbage', which is a very filling breakfast hash If you've got a big day ahead of you, fuel up here.

This is exactly what you would imagine an American diner to be! Forget about McDonalds and every other fast food outlet. Get down to Cindy's she n you are next in Fort WAyne. It is about to move a couple of blocks but Any local will be abel to direct you. Be prepared to stand in line at a weekend.... More

Cindy's is the typical little diner that you would have found in any large town or city a few decades ago. Cindy's keeps that alive with great food and friendly service in a tiny corner. They will be moving soon, so be sure to check the address before you go, but from the food, to their eclectic collection of coffee... More

This is a classic Fort Wayne place. Soon it will have a new home at berry and maiden. If you go for breakfast try the garbage or Mickey Mouse pancakes.
