Serving great food for those who wish to avoid chain eateries

I am an addict to the homemade hash that is full of root vegetables (that helps me justify the calories a hash can provide). Deb's have award winning biscuits. A breakfast or a lunch with a specials board that meets everyone's needs. Inexpensive, local color.

We stopped in as the reviews said to... I had a nice biscuit with egg and cheese, my husband, chowder with big piece of fresh grilled (bit over grilled) haddock. Very nice not exceptional but jolly nice. We sat at the bar, could see the goings on. The hygiene was less than desirable. Pans were clogged black with food from... More

Have only had breakfast there but it was excellent. Legit local diner. Great homemade hash. Great service, reasonable prices. I think we were the only non-locals there; do the math.

Excellent breakfast spot - make sure to order your homefries deep fried. The link sausage was particularly excellent.

Deb's is what real diners should be. Better than Moody's up the road. Homemade everything- loaves of bread rising on the stove top in the morning. Locals sitting at tables before the start of the work day. And, of course, Deb, the owner and cook, warm and welcoming. She has just opened a second diner in Bristol Mills and we... More

We stopped here because Moody's diner was closed due to water pipe brake. They were ready to close but stayed open for us. The food was very good and the service was pleasant! This was July 2014.

Decided to try this spot the other day before the blizzard hit. We were looking for somewhere different in the area and this placed showed up on trip advisor. They have a nice menu and friendly waitstaff. I ordered the classic reuban with slaw, my husband had the friend chicken sandwich with a side salad. Our order took a little... More

My standard American diner breakfast is: homefries, over easy eggs, and toast. At Deb's this iconic breakfast is made just a little better than usual by the wonderful thick slices of homemade bread that they use for toast. Also better than expected were their pancakes - huge fluffy blueberry pancake - yum. Be aware that to get real maple syrup... More

Stopped at Debs because I didn't feel like Moody's. Man I am glad I did, Debs blows Moody's out the water! Food, service and prices are way better. Don't be fooled by the small parking lot that always seems to be full, there's a nice little back room. The waitstaff is friendly and fast. I ordered the Cabins Hash with... More
