Friendly diner

Not fancy, rather a relaxed atmosphere with good tasting food. The wait staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient.

Want something super fancy? Don't go here. But if you're a fan of real diner food, served up by a friendly staff, this is your spot. I ordered the "Amy's Favorite" -- poached eggs with spinch and hollaindaise over a grilled English muffin -- which was very tasty. I LOVE a place that serves breakfast all day!

what we were looking for--clean, reliable diner food, served quickly with attentive wait staff. food wasnt exciting but was fine. coffee was terrific and they accomodated special orders well! (ie milk for the coffee and runny yolks for the benedict). hollandaise sauce was excellent but spinach tasted frozen(not a lot of flavor). price was great and we will be back.

The Chef's Hat is just what you'd expect in a roadside diner. Quick, simple food in hearty portions, free refills on coffee and a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Decent prices and a large local crowd. We love coming here at least a couple of times a month for breakfast.

My boyfriend and my first visit to this place was phenomenal! I got the eggs benedict which was fantastic. I am a very picky eater when it comes to dishes like eggs benedict but they got it just right! My boyfriend got hash and eggs which was also delicious! Will definitely be repeated customers! And the staff was very friendly... More

A quirky bright yellow place just over the bridge past the Cozy Corner on Route 7 North, this quasi-diner is always full of locals, welcomed by chef and staff as though all are family. This is another place that sustained me when marooned in Williamstown two years ago during and after Hurricane Sandy. Warmth of welcome then was even more... More

Three of us had breakfast here about 8:45 on a Friday. The bright yellow exterior on US-7 north of Williamstown is hard to miss. Service was a little slow, but pleasant. Kind of a country decor. The portion sizes for the 3-egg omelet and french toast seemed a little small (no sides included), but the “short stack” of buckwheat pancakes... More
