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.

We LOVE Cindy's Diner! It has an authentic diner atmosphere that never disappoints! Only 15 people can sit at the counter at a time, so it feels very intimate and friendly, like sitting in someone's kitchen. In fact, some seats are close enough to literally touch the grill! The service is very friendly, and even when you go in for... More

I did not order well, should have had the "Garbage". Will try another time. Note to travellers that diner was literally picked up and moved a couple blocks due to downtown redevelopment.

Note : 203 West Berry is where the diner now sits. This isn't a hipster diner that's trying to re-capture the days of yore, it's a diner that's just always been a diner and it's still just being a diner today! Counter only seating limits total capacity, and gives a birds-eye view of the kitchen. Coffee comes in a motley... More

I really love places like this. Took the family and we sat outside and ate. My wife and I had the garbage meal and it was good, kinda like something I would cook while camping to be honest. The inside is very small with only 15 seats at a counter I believe. Everyone was friendly and everyone seemed happy to... More

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!
