Can't miss this unique place.

My wife, daughter and I stopped in for a late breakfast/early lunch the other day. We had tried to get in the previous day but the wait was a little too long. The diner is only about 12'x20' big and seats about 24 people. This time we waited for about 15 minutes or so and grabbed 3 spots at the... read more

This place is so CUTE! I totally loved being in here. You can sit at the bar and see the back of the place! Wonderful. We ate breakfast here and the food was good! The wait staff was friendly and fun. Seating is definitely limited but it is worth it. They are busy and we met some locals who come... More

For a "hole in the wall," this family of 6 enjoyed every meal ordered here- we ate here for both dinner and breakfast! Prices are not "diner" prices, but the food was stellar!

This is a great place to eat. Seating is limited but that is part of what it makes it great. The food was very good. You can get breakfast or lunch items. We ate lunch but had breakfast. I had a ham and cheese omelette with home fries. My wife had homemade corned beef hash and eggs that were cooked... More

This is a place with wonderful food for breakfast--at times you are observing the locals who probably gather here daily, yet they can come over to you and say "hi" and welcome you to Cooperstown. If there is a line--WAIT!

Great little diner in the center of Cooperstown. You get the impression that there are a bunch of regulars that eat here every day, and then there are the travelers. All are welcome and all will enjoy the food- and you can order breakfast for dinner.

Delicious, homestyle breakfast in a cozy setting--for us, it was worth the 45 minute wait outside on a nice day for such a delicious and filling brunch. We left fortified until dinner and the cost was reasonable. Friendly service.

So tiny! We had a long wait for the food and for the bill, but to be fair, they only had 1 waitress and a help wanted sign in the window. It's a mom and pop diner. I had a delicious omelet and toast and came back later on for brownie hot fudge sundae, for $2.95!! It was a little... More

Smallest old time diner I have ever seen. Fair prices and good food. Would go back in a heart beat next visit

Every time we visit Cooperstown we make the Diner a must stop. This time we made 2 stops. One for the massive burgers, the other for the all you can eat spaghetti. There is no question it is so small you have to go outside to change your mind and its age gives it the appearance of perhaps no being... More
