Dinky's is a bit out of the way, but its worth a trip to sit in an old train car. Their pancakes, bacon, and decaf coffee were excellent and not too heavy, greasy, or like dishwater. The service was also excellent.

My husband frequents this diner as a kick-off for motorcycle trips. Among our friends, it is a favorite. Any time we go together, the service is prompt, the selections are numerous including freshly baked muffins.

Dinky's is a family favorite, from our young kids to our elderly parents! Service is always friendly - food is always great! If you're looking for a classic diner breakfast, you will NOT be disappointed.

My boyfriend and I love Dinky's. He always requests it for his birthday. The portions are huge, the prices are right and the coffee is good. If you arrive on Sunday before the church crowd you can usually get a seat. I highly recommend Uncle bump's breakfast. If you love old-fashioned diners with great food, give Dinky's a try.

Betsy's diner in Falmouth on Cape Cod always says, "Eat large." Well, you can do the same in Boylston, Mass. (Rt.70) at Dinky's Blue Belle Diner. Food is great, prices are not steep, service is good. All typical of a good old-fashioned diner. Serving breakfast and lunch you can't go wrong here unless you order too much. I made the... More

I just had my first visit to Dinky's and I'll definitely be back. We went on a Sunday so it was moderately busy but with 'seat yourself' seating we found a spot immediately and were offered coffee before we even sat down. We ordered omelets with a side of bacon, and had our food in no time. The portions are... More

Went here recently after watching a crew regatta nearby. We were looking for a late breakfast and got there about 30 minutes befroe closing. We saw the reviews and figured we would give it a shot. The hash and cheddar omelette was thin and dry, hash tasted like it was from a can. Cranberry nut french toast was very good.... More
