I frequent the Elm Diner because their food is CONSISTENTLY awesome. The owner John and his wife are really friendly and take a ton of pride in their restaurant. You will frequently see John going around to tables and making sure that everyone's orders came out right and that everyone is enjoying their meals. The staff is pleasant and the food, which is what you're probably reading this review for anyways, is top notch.
I get an omelet here 9 out of 10 times I visit. They are cooked perfectly every time - never too runny and never too dry. I usually get the western omelet which is my favorite but I do venture out to some of their other specialties. When I'm getting lunch I usually go for a triple decker club and these are great too. The presentation of the food is great here, especially for a diner!
If you're looking for a great, reasonably priced diner, this is the place to go in West Haven.
