Great Breakfast

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

We have had many breakfasts at the Cooperstown Diner--always our first choice in town when we want breakfast foods. The food is hearty and homey, reminding me of my grandmother's cooking. Tourists and locals are treated like family here. Even though it's often crowded, we've always squeezed in and are glad we did!

It's small and you most likely will have to wait for breakfast; but it's my favorite "Eats" in C'town. Really. Friendly staff; coffee flows easily, as does the conversation. Wanna know a 'deal' or 'special place' to fill in time b'tween visits to Hall and memorabilia shops? Ask the staff. Out in kitchen area..it's busy, busy..just like old time diners... More

Had heard about this little (tiny) diner in the middle of Cooperstown and went there for lunch after visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame on a snowy, cold February day. The place was busy and most spaces were occupied (not hard to do!) but my wife and I got a table by the door. I had read on TripAdvisor that... More

Very small place, but they have good food at affordable prices. Very friendly and helpful staff. Waitress offered to assist my son who couldn't decide what to order. She was very helpful and pleasant. My youngest had the honey dipped fried chicken and potato salad(homemade)it was delicious. I will definetly go back when in the area.

Sometimes you have to wait for the best breakfast. It's a very small place but it's worth the wait. The staff does a good job. Sitting at the bar and mingling with some locals or other visitors is nice.

Enjoyed this little diner for all of it's small town charm. I probably never would have stopped here except that it was November and I had no choice. I'm glad I did. The food was good and the service was friendly. I suggest you check it out.
