Great Diner Food & Service

Located on the oval in Milford where parking can be difficult, this is a great place for breakfast or lunch. It has excellent version of all expected diner breakfast and lunch meals and daily specials. Good food, quick service and reasonable prices. What's not to like?

While visiting family, we stopped here to have breakfast before leaving town. There were five of us and we all chose different things ranging from oatmeal to eggs to the daily specials. The experience was very good, everyone was pleased with their orders. We were seated and served quickly. The staff was efficient and friendly. The food was fresh and... More

We ordered a veggie omelet which was a large, and filled with veggies. The egg part of the omelet was nice and thin. We also ordered two fried eggs, and a pancake. Simple, good, and the eggs came out... More

Ultra swift service. Fast, hot, good food. Excellent reuben. Friend ordered a lobster roll and said it was way better than where she usually goes, and was half the price. I've been there for breakfast, which was excellent. They're doing a bang up job on lunch also.

We have a family in Brookline NH not far from Milford and we are always thrilled to be going here on a weekend for breakfast. It's best to be early on the weekend to avoid a wait but the staff is always eager to combine tables to accommodate a family group. The quality of the food is outstanding. My favorite... More

This is a great place for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Traditional foods, such as eggs, pancakes, and a variety of sandwiches, are complimented by specials that are often quite exotic. Last time I was there I had an apple caramel crepe that was decadent and heavenly. The omelets are interesting and generous. The coffee is good, according to my dining... More
