“Small town diner gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Stopped for breakfast while college visiting in Potsdam. We loved the place. Nothing fancy but just a homey place with friendly people and solidly good food. My son got the "heart attack" sandwich and loved it. We would go back. Gotta try the pie next time!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

No glitz, no glamour. Just great food, good prices and a homey atmosphere. At least weekly visits

“Breakfast aand lunch star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Popular with locals and college students as well. Popeye's breakfast cibatta beats a McMuffin hands down. For a heartier eater kitchen sink stffed omlettes, or stacks of pancakes. Home made soups and pies for lunch are down home cooking. Nothing fancy, just good food at a reasonable price

“There are better options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

(to the previous poster: I'm glad my grandmother knows how to cook....)

I detest coated fries, if you can't make a good fry without coating it you need to find another line of work. Burger was average, Clam chowder was good.

Thought it was a little expensive for the quantity/quality.

Next time I'll trust the TripAdvisor recommendations I had rather than the clerk at The World Artisan.

“Good honest American food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

The Village diner serves the kind of food grandma used to make, if grandma had met the ciabatta roll. They serve breakfast all day (although they are only open from 7-2.) The place is bright and clean and the service is warm and friendly. Don't miss the homemade pies! this simple spot is my favorite place to eat when I am in Potsdam.
