Every time I leave this restaurant, I think "I need to write a review for TripAdvisor". As noted above, we are local and usually eat breakfast here about twice a month. A couple of quirks - very small so you usually sit close to others but not a problem because people are very focused on their food ;-) Also -... More

This place has very good food and presentation. The service is also good. They could use a bigger facility.

Classic Diner does not have a classic diner decor, or classic diner menu, or classic diner hours....but that's a good thing in this case. They offer a pretty great breakfast and I've gone out of my way on occasion to buy one of their BLTs for lunch. Good spot to meet up with a friend for a non-alcoholic brunch. The... More

This place rocks. The choices for breakfast are amazing. We were meeting our daughter for who works in the area. She had pear and cream cheese stuffed french toast with a Grand Mariner sauce. I had an omelette with sauteed spinach, goat cheese, and roasted red peppers. The portions are HUGE and luckily she had been there before and advised... More

The Classic Diner is absolutely charming. The food is even better. I had the brioche French toast, and some of my husband's bacon. Best bacon ever! It's thick cut and perfectly cooked. Everyone in our party of four had a different breakfast dish, and each was more than pleased with his/her meal. I doubt you can go wrong, and would... More

We were really looking forward to trying this restaurant since it was always packed. They have a very small parking lot, but we were surprised at how small the restaurant was inside as well. It is nicely decorated, but packed with tables. To get into out table we had to have the neighboring table move their table over so that... More

The menu has a little bit of everything for breakfast or lunch. Everything is a good quality and generously portioned. You will not be disappointed. It does sometimes get crowded, but I have never been disappointed. Pro tip: the house-made chips are excellent.

The menu definitely has something for everyone, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. The portions are very large and the prices reflect that. Everything is well prepared and very good. Personally, I would like smaller portions and smaller prices. I also think there are a few too many tables, it can feel very crowded. But judging by the... More

Good menu selections for everyone's tastes. The fact that you can get breakfast all day is a plus too. Only downside is that if it is cold outside it will be cold inside. Don't take a seat by a door you will freeze.
