It was extremely busy. Not sure if... More

This is a classic American diner. The booths are red with white lining, the coffee comes from a pot that they have on a heat plate and the ketchup is on the table. Planet Java Diner offers classic American breakfast and lunch foods. If a classic American breakfast is what you're looking for this place does it right. No frills,... More

Don't miss this great restaurant! It is not marked with a huge sign on Washington Street, but the number is on the door. The decor inside was fun and warm, and the service was extra friendly. The food was phenomenal and a huge hit with everyone in our group. Highly recommend this place!
