Sonny's is off the main drag of Wilmington (that stop light is a bummer!) on Rt 100 about half a mile north of "downtown". Counter seating only, but the locals will usually slide over to give you room, if they can. Breakfast & lunch only, but decent. They have a menu, then a large menu board over the grille. But... More

Like and old friend, the C n S is the classic New England breakfast joint. Comfort food and more at great prices. Grab a seat at the counter and hang with the locals for some great food. don't forget to check the specials.

My family has breakfast here from time to time. The restaurant is old and somewhat worn out, but that is the beauty. It is clean and serviceable. A wonderful atmosphere for a small town diner. Great pancakes of all varieties, eggs any way you want them. Sausage and biscuits. The food is quick and there is plenty of it. The... More

We stopped in here on our way home. The set up was a little strange. It was two u shaped counters that you sat at. When people leave you just sit in their spots. We had to split up our group because of the set up. The food was good although our friends who sat after us and got almost... More

Went with a friend of mine from Mt. Snow here for pancakes. He said there was no other place with great pancakes around. He was sooooo right. Everything here is tasty. Simple Diner food cooked the way it should be. When you order a glass of milk it should be COLD. These guys serve it that way. Along with the... More

We like the small intimate flare of this local diner. Sonny was actually cooking. I usually dont like diners but one had decent food. The homemade corned beef hash was good and unique. Service didnt bowl us over but was friendly and not overly accommodating. We want to comeback and try the pancakes or maybe an omelet.

Stopped here for a late lunch with the family. At first my wife didn't want to go. Afterwards she said it was Very Clean and her food was good. I like places like this. A real gem, because a lot of other places were closed. Can't wait to revisit.

To sum it all up our waiter was rude, impatient , and insulting. Never once did she come back and ask if we needed refills for our coffee. Also when we were writing down the tip she looked, and walked away as if it wasn't enough for her " awesome " service!

Being from a part of the country where diners are part of the landscape, we know a good one when we find one. The Cup and Saucer is a true diner from its great menu to its atmosphere and decor. We stopped in for a late lunch after a lengthy snow-shoe excursion and were not disappointed. The grilled cheese sandwich... More

In a world where everything is done, staged, and -- heaven help me -- curated, this place is a true diner. The waitress was friendly but not syrupy; the service was quick; the specials sounded good, and my tuna melt was exactly what a tuna melt was meant to be. You could see into the kitchen. It was perfect. I'm... More
