Great breakfast at a reasonable price

Fun, hometown place to have breakfast. Staff is friendly, service is a little slow, but the atmosphere is definitely hometown, food is delicious and you might get into a discussion about baseball stats with the locals, if you are not careful.

Info: Seats about 20; accepts credit cards; has a small bathroom behind the kitchen. Comments: The wait was kind of long for such a small place but they did only have one server and one cook. Great if you like the tiny diner feel and sitting at the counter. The food was great, server was friendly. Skip it if you... More

it's tiny and underwhelming to look at. But the omelets and home fries were excellent. The front desk staff at our hotel said they had the best food in Cooperstown.

My autistic son is very picky about what he eats and he found lots to eat at this small, homey diner. He said that their Tuna Melt is 'Da Bomb' and I especially enjoyed their 'Jumbo Burger'. A must visit when in Cooperstown!

Takes you back to a touch of old fashioned downtown diner. The diner is small in size but the staff friendly and the food was terrific.

This was a great recommendation from the staff at the museum. You need to time your visit just right, there is only seating for 24 people!!! They offer breakfast all day and their burgers are HUGE. We didn't partake, but they offer homemade pies daily .. they looked delicious.

We overslept breakfast at our hotel, so we walked to the Cooperstown Diner. It's quite small so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table, but it's well worth the wait. The wait staff was fast & friendly and the food was great! Some of the best pancakes I've ever had. Thanks for a great start to... More
