I usually have breakfast here about once a week. This place used to be known as Libby's Blue Line Diner but she sold it and it has become the Athens Diner for several years now. We have a couple of favorite waitresses who anticipate our every need for coffee refills and a good joke. The portions... read more

For some reason, I find myself going back here more than I should. Each time I hope I'm going to enjoy a better meal, but it is consistently average at best.

If you find this helpful please click the helpful link below. This is a small old fashioned clearly greek influenced diner. The food was very reasonable and the breakfast was above average. Eggs were fresh, bacon slightly fatty but you could tell it was fresh also. Great homemade bread. The staff was friendly, the place was clean enough for a... More

The food here is great and very affordable. The french toast with Vermont maple syrup or veggie omelet are my favorite. The waitresses are very friendly and there is an old school, Greek inspired diner feel. This place can get very busy on the weekends and you may have to wait for 20 minutes to get a table, but the...

I really like this diner. It is definitely NOT a greasy spoon establishment. I have eaten both breakfast and lunch here on several occasions, and have never been disappointed. Today I had home-made split pea soup, and one of the most luxe and delicious chicken salad sandwiches I have ever eaten in a restaurant. When I complimented the server on... More

My husband took me here for my birthday brunch per my request. It was his first time here, my second and they did not disappoint. Though I was tempted to have the same thing that I had last time. The waitress helped me chose something similar and absolutely amazing. I had the Irish Eggs Benedict which uses their homemade Corned... More

If you like Diners, you have found your Utopia. Great food, unbelievable service, great prices in the atmosphere of a true Diner! College students fill the place because of the large servings, with low costs.

We went to the Athens Diner for breakfast while visiting Vermont. It's a cute, old timey diner, and the prices were very reasonable. My husband had the Vermonter Skillet and I had an omelet. It was no big deal to them to let me tweak the menu a bit to alter my omelet at no additional charge and I really... More
