After a change of ownership, this diner has unfortunately gone down in food and service quality while the prices have escalated. The omelettes are well made, but on my last few visits after coming here for about 20 years, the food is not presented well and other items were only fair. The building, an antique, restored railroad station, is very... More

Do not expect a quiet, genteel atmosphere but do expect a diner-like experience with quick service, generous and tasty omelettes. Parking is adjacent, but limited. They create a wide-variety of omelettes, all good, all filling and all reasonably priced.

I like this place a lot. Great breakfast spot. But the waits got so long that I started going elsewhere. I would recommend it for the food, but it's not very relaxing; it's crowded; and the waits are enough to send you elsewhere.

Relying upon nothing but our GPS to find a place for breakfast, we stumbled across Omelette Headquaters and found it outstanding. My wife had something we had never even heard of. Instead of Eggs Benedict, she had a marvelous Crab Cakes Benedict. It included two small but very tasty crab cakes. I ordered a Smoked Salmon Omellette, expecting no more... More

The Omelette Headquarters is fantastic! It's seat yourself, staff is friendly, but the place is super busy, especially on weekends. But if you don't mind waiting, it's all worth it. Fluffy, soft omelettes with dozens of fillings to chose from. They do have pancakes, french toast, fruit, etc but omelettes are (obviously from the name) their thing. Very reasonably priced... More

We come here about once a month for a nice Sunday breakfast. If you time it right (while Mass is being said) it's a very short wait if any. Between services it gets very crowded and you might need to wait outside. They keep it brisk though, so the wait isn't ever very long. They have a decent basic menu... More

Very good food. Very reasonable prices. Friendly staff. What else you want to ask for? My daughters are very picky eaters and they love this place too. Place is usually packed so expect a little wait in the line.

My husband and I love this little restaurant. We go quite often and so do alot of other people since the place is usually packed. Don't expect anything fancy. It is in a small old train station. It has a diner atmosphere, but without the counter. The wait staff is always friendly. The food is very good and the prices... More
