While the food was very good in this tiny diner, the owners make it special. Really lovely people who want to be sure that you were happy with your food. We had never been there before but we felt like friends when we left. Two of us had omelets, my husband had a Ruben and my son had a grilled... More

We visit the Route 28 Diner every time we stay in South Yarmouth. Sometimes multiple times during our stay. The staff is ALWAYS friendly. The food is always good. The prices make it even better. It's not a fancy place and they don't have all these fancy menu items. It just has that comfy feel of having a really good... More

We kept passing this place up for others then one day decided to stop in. It has a great theme inside and the kids enjoyed looking at the decor. The waitstaff were very friendly and eager to please. Food was good and nicely priced. We would stop here anytime.

Cute little place that had the shortest line for breakfast on a late Saturday morning. Food was reasonably priced, even if not of stellar taste (bacon a tad on the overcooked/burnt side, eggs overcooked, pancakes crumbly). Very attentive wait staff and the proprietor himself was hosting and very pleasant.

This is a small family run diner next to Blondie's Ice Cream and Skull Island Mini-Golf. We stopped her twice during our week on the Cape. It was wonderful. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. All greeted us with a smile. The restaurant is clean and updated. The food was hot and pleasing. The cost was per person is... More

A small diner that fits in the "look where the locals eat" mold. Opens at 6AM and a full breakfast menu at your disposal. The food was very good, however the owner makes it all worthwhile. She was apparently a motivational speaker before leaving the corporate rat-race to try something a bit less stressful and she could do with her... More

We ate here for breakfast on Sunday August 3, 2014 for the first time. Great food and very friendly and accommodating staff. The owners were pleasant and very appreciative of who we were, where we were from. It is always great to feel welcome. Thank you Nancy and Tom.

This immaculately clean little diner is so worth the stop. I've made the mistake of driving past this place before but never again. We enjoyed a simple lunch here of a delicious egg salad sandwich and a Rubin and both were great. Service is friendly and seems there are a lot of locals who are the regulars. If you don't... More

My family was looking for some good breakfast food. The prices were very reasonable, and the food was great. They kept the coffee coming. The staff was enthusiastic; the owners were genuinely happy to see you. There were many regulars here, not just tourists which was a good sign.
