Someplace different for breakfast

Such a fun way to spend a morning ... Food is basic and very good. The staff very kind. Chef can make it all with his eyes closed I think. Lol it's a hustle but he gets it done. Kids love the environment ... So do the adults. A top stop for our morning breakfast out!

This is just an old time Diner on the corner. A few counter seats and seating out side. Quick food of the grill. Great breakfast. Fun people who work there.

Very quickly you see this is the local place people go to often. It was slammed on a Saturday. It is tight quarters. It reminded us of the Diner and Dives show, which we enjoy. For us it was about the experience. Our breakfast was good. I wouldn't recommend for a family because of limited seating and the potential wait.... More

Tiny adorable place. Like twenty people? Very limited seating. Owners are very friendly and personable. Breakfast was great. Fun experience.

This very tiny diner will transport you back in time..a true diner experience. Get there early to get a seat at the red Formica counter--the only seating options available. Wait if you need to--turn over is usually quick. You may be tempted to take the one picnic table outside--but don't do that if this is your first visit, you need... More

I really like to search out local places when traveling.. I could've eaten at the downtown hotel, but breakfast at Cindy's sounded like a place worth checking out. The food was great (go for the garbage!) and the friendly service was better. It was fun chatting with some of the regulars I really appreciate their hospitality.

Delicious food, reasonable prices, great service....what else can you ask for? Sweet talk Angie and ask her to whip you up a peanut butter and chocolate milkshake for lunch. If you are there at breakfast when the donuts are being made fresh, ask for a warm cinnamon and sugar.

Not a place for kids....not enough room. Has about 12-14 seats in total. The garbage was good but the bacon and sausage was just ok!

Took a while to find it after they moved the diner about a block or two, but was able to sneak over one day for lunch. Bacon Cheeseburger is a very good choice, their fries are great too. I looked at their breakfast menu (which is served all day) and it's going to be my second visit (and maybe even... More

This is convenient to the Wayne Convention Center and has the best breakfast! Scrambled eggs were the best I've ever had and servings were large. Served with American potatoes and thick slices of rye toast. It is classic 50's diner with only bar stool seating - very small - so you may have to wait, but well worth it.
