Donna's Cafe is just the kind of place my husband and I hope to find when on the road. As soon as we saw the dozen or so cars parked out front at 8 a.m., we knew we should stop for breakfast.

My family and I stopped at Donna's on our drive home from Boston. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we hope to return some day! Our server was one of the sweetest people we've ever met.

If you like that feeling of being able to relax, laugh, visit and just enjoy yourself while eating some great down home food, then this is the place for you! Even the patrons will greet you when you come in! We eat here very often. The food is prepared just as you like it!

This is a cozy little diner that you will fall in love with. The breakfasts are great! Certain times of the year they have fish dinners. Otherwise they are only open for breakfast and lunch. The owners Don & Donna will make you feel at home!
