best breakfast on the cape

excellent breakfast, great service, reminds me of an old school diner. Service is first rate and the food is like your your mom used to make. The best part of this diner is the positive energy running through the place, everyone is happy and upbeat.

We ate at two different restaurants while in Cape Cod and the Route 28 Diner was the favorite. It was like eating among people I have known for years, even though it was our first time in the area. The wait staff was so friendly and made us feel like we were home. The food was excellent and priced fairly.... More

A throwback to a quieter time. Good, simple, basic food and THE BEST dessert ever. Who needs fancy chocolate cream pie when you've got graham crackers, chocolate pudding and whipped cream? I've been making variations of this at home. The best, so far, is adding shredded coconut to the whipped cream.

When you walk in you see an old time Diner and then you notice all the memorabilia such as real 45 records under glass on table. The food is very good and the staff is great !

This is a small diner. We went on a Sunday morning. The first impression was good. The owner welcomed us at the door and said we could sit at the counter or wait for a booth. We chose the counter. The restaurant just shined, it was so clean. The waitstaff is very friendly the food was excellent. We do have... More

I have been going to the Route 28 Diner for 4 years now. They never disappoint with atmosphere, personality and the food is great!!! Love the owner-family and they are the sweetest folks! Perfectly cooked eggs, breakfast meats, and home fries that make you want to slap your grandma!! You can't beat the value with a stick, plus you get... More

A tiny restaurant with a big heart. This family owned old silverside diner is a local treasure. I love the ambience! There are real photos of how the diner and area were way back when the tourist area didn't exist, and the owner knows all that history like the back of his hand. The service is quick, efficient, and friendly,... More

Don't let the appearances fool you. This place looks like a little shack from the outside but inside is a place you want to keep coming back to. Friendly service, reasonable prices and delicious food all keep this place on my Cape Cod radar.

We knew it would be good when there was a line during the off season. We enjoyed our breakfast- omelets, pancakes, home fries. All delicious! Meals were great, service was even better. The grilled muffins looked yummy- next time!

We were fortunate to arrive when we did. A waiting line formed as we were seated. Food was well prepared, as ordered. Portions were adequate. Food was very tasty. Nancy put a smile on everyone's face. Had attempted to have breakfast there in our past visits but, the lines were extremely long. Would definitely go there again. Prices were very... More
