A hidden Gem!

I stoped by this morning and had breakfest and 3 cups of coffee. The cook was wearing a red chefs hat and welcomed me to the diner. I ordered 2 over easy, home fries, toast (dark rye) and a ham steak. When my meal arrived (very fast service)I was some surprised with the ham steak, it was the... read more

This diner is right on Route one but can easily be missed. I brought my grandson here for breakfast on a Saturday morning around ten am. Be warned, this place is very small. There is not much room between the tables. If you plan on bringing a crowd it will definately be tight. I ordered the french toast and my... More

Hidden away amongst the dozen or so auto dealerships on Route 1 in Saco is the Auto Mile Diner. This is a great place to eat breakfast or lunch. The locals know about it and so do the people in the auto business. Everything is incredibly home made and very fresh. The menu is very large and breakfast features rarities... More

We arrived to the Chef singing out a tune in key & quite good. He greeted us himself and asked us to sit wherever we wanted. Interesting wall art everywhere along with breakfast and lunch menus, also menus at the table. Coffee served immediately in large oversized cups with the diner logo. Our waitress suggested a few wonderful sounding meals,... More

Fun little diner close to Hampton Inn. Good food and good prices. Entertaining just to be there and read the paper menus on the walls...

George makes his own corn beef hash, and I love it. We stop in this place every time we head towards Portland from Kennebunk. My friend is not a fan of hash, and he is also crazy about this unassuming little place.

Yes, the handwritten menu is really on the wall which is better than handling bulky folding cardboards that will get in the way until someone fetches them. This place is small so the wall is easy to see. See photo. If you are vacationing in OOB, you will need a bargain, so this is the place to go. Eggs any... More

No wait to get a table. Rushed staff and angry cook who yelled through our whole breakfast. Decent cheap food though. Worth it if you are looking for a quick cheap breakfast

Not a diner like you find on TV shows about vintage diners, but a true "hole in the wall". Be warned as a large part of the menu is actually on the wall. I am not making this up. Had breakfast which was adequate and cheap. Listened to the owner go on about living with his mom for 20 minutes.... More
