Great diner breakfast

This little diner is a local favorite, with local charm right down to it's staff. We were there on Sunday morning of Memorial Day weekend, so we did have a bit of a wait for our food. However, that was not for lack of trying or attention from the staff-they were hustling and then some. Coffee... read more

Sandi's is a locally owned, locally staffed classic breakfast/lunch diner right on Main Street. Food is excellent diner fare and the prices are even fairer! Leave your attitude at home as real people frequent Sandi's and obnoxious behavior by adults or children is not appreciated by anyone eating or working there, and the offender will understrand that message.

Nothing that felt like I was at the Cape. It needed to be aired out - it smelled very stale. They didn't have anything seafood. No chowder. ended up laughing and picking a grilled cheese. very disappointed.

We ducked in here by chance on a rainy afternoon for lunch. The warm welcome followed by great food was a happy surprise. Sandi made my egg salad sandwich from scratch! We were sitting at the counter and I watched her take two hard boiled eggs and make one of the best I've ever had. It was my husband's birthday... More

Very classic little diner. Service was prompt and food well prepared. Cash only so be aware of that coming in. I think it's a pretty standard stop if you're visiting Chatham for a quick and easy breakfast in a low key atmosphere.

Great filling breakfasts, potatoes are to die for and your coffee cup is never empty. It's the gathering place of the locals so you know the food is wonderful. Fast friendly service.

If you are looking for a good no frills breakfast or lunch when you are visiting Chatham, this is the only place to go. The decor is basic with humorous quotes on the walls. The food is freshly prepared in front of you and is very good breakfast/burger fare at a reasonable price. Coffee is served the old fashioned way... More

For Asians, this restaurant looks like what we only see on tv - it's a classic American Diner with very friendly owners, very nice interior design and where food is comforting. My family loved ordering corned beef hash every morning. One time, we left my baby's blanket and the owner was nice enough to run and catch us at the... More

Don't get me wrong - there's nothing bad about Sandi's (unless you want to pay by credit card) just nothing truly special. The dining room is clean but looks like it hasn't changed since the 1960s, the service fast and friendly by an army of older waitresses and the menu extensive enough to satisfy most everybody. The pancakes and French... More

Happened upon Sandi's on a Sunday while taking some vacation time on the Cape this summer. Chatham is such a nice town, and for the most part - people were really friendly. We walked into this diner at about 10 am. Looked like a down-home, no nonsense restaurant - and the food looked great. Bottom line - I can't recall... More
