Best breakfast in a long time!

I drove all the way from the Seacoast to check out what was listed as one of the top 20 diners to visit in New England...and I was NOT disappointed! Our waitress was a delight, and our breakfast was an absolute treat...best French toast I've had in years. The home-made hash was a real treat and... read more

The Chelsea is a diner, with all the virtues of a diner, inexpensive, unassuming, quick service, reliable food, but it is more, it is 2, maybe 3 steps, better than average. Home made ice cream and desserts, their own bread, their own "free range " eggs. Most everything is made on site from fresh and locally sourced ingredients. We have... More

Very friendly service, and the definitely flexible and kid friendly. Burgers were good, french fries also good. Breakfast available at any time AND served with real Vermont maple syrup upon request (as a side order). My son ordered a burrito without salsa and specifically said he only wanted sour cream and cheese and the first time it came out of... More

At least once a year we travel up to the Royal Chelsea Diner for one thing - so my husband can get Mom's Meatloaf. But it's better than Mom's! Better than mine. In fact it's the best he's EVER eaten & he's fussy about his meatloaf! I have tried a variety of items & it never disappoints. I have not... More

Very good food, good prices, and good service. Stopped for breakfast one day and lunch another day. Make sure to bring cash though because they do not accept credit cards nor out of town checks. Very filing portion sizes, homemade bread, local beef…just an all around good place to eat.

I'm writing of an establishment that has been serving Brattleboro customers for 75 years, since 1939. It's a real diner ... do you know what that means? First of all, the main dining room is an original Worcester diner, shipped from its Massachusetts manufacturer on a railroad car. But 'diner' at its best has come to mean great 'home-cooked' -...

My first stop here was a great experience. The service was pleasant, the atmosphere was lively, and the food was spot on.My most recent visit was terrible. The place was nearly empty and the waitress carried on about her personal life across the dining room to the other waitress. Eventually she forgot we were there. Once my order was taken,... More
