Probably not our "go-to" place in Putney anymore :(

My husband and I have been known to take trips to Putney from CT just to have the Green Mountain Special (meatloaf sandwich with white cheddar and cranberry sauce). We had it again this trip, along with the Thanksgiving Day After, and both the sandwiches were just a yummy as we... read more

Putney Diner offers just what you would expect: pancakes, sandwiches, drip coffee. Nothing spectacular. Seem to reject the Vermont fresh and local theme: nothing organic, fresh, or local here. The sugar is white, the cream is packed in plastic, meats are ultra processed. It's a diner, no more or less.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon-it was quiet. We ordered wings and potato skins- they were awful. The skins were cold and we had to wait 15 minutes for the same food to be returned just a fraction hotter! Our mains of burgers took 30 mins to come after out starters and again they were not great. This place looks... More

The Diner serves good diner food -- it's a Putney institution. Some locals go every week, or every day. Breakfasts are especially good, and if Ellie is your waitress, she'll remember your order next week or next month when you go again.

The food here is really, really good. I tried the belgian waffle and my boyfriend had the buckwheat pancakes. It's a seat yourself diner but when we went in, we weren't allowed to seat ourselves and had to wait a considerable amount of time. Not because there weren't empty tables, there were, but because the waitstaff wouldn't seat us until... More

A locals diner if ever there was one. Quaint? Maybe comfortable is a better term. This a great lunch place, the burger I had was really more of a home made burger. Excellent. The building itself was undoubtedly built at the turn of the century, the last century. Watch your step going in, the step is a flat piece of... More

The Putney Diner is where the locals come for breakfast and/or lunch. Typical and good hearty breakfast/lunch fare, and breakfast is available any time!

We had finished up our annual Basketville stop in Putney and chose to go here before moving on to a couple of other stops. The day was Tuesday and other local restaurants were either closed or not open at Noon. We were quickly greeted and invited to pick our own table. The menu was full of inviting diner-type food items;... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast on our way to Basketville. Greeting was very friendly. The omelet and the French toast we had were both very good. Service was very good. If you want a good, reasonably priced breakfast and you are in the Putney area, stop in...you won't be disappointed.

I was passing through Vermont and stopped at the Putney diner and was extremely disappointed. I seated myself and waited 10 minutes to get the waitress's attention, get a menu and order a beverage. The waitress was very rude with me and didn't seem to know the menu well, she couldn't answer any of my questions. When I finally got... More
