“Excellent breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This small diner, located in a small mall had an excellent selection of breakfast items all at a reasonable cost. We tried this after reading other reviews and agree - worth the value.

“Excellent Diner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Our family has eaten here many times, and our out-of-town guests always love it too. Everything is delicious; in particular, we enjoy the pancakes, burgers, sweet potato fries, homemade soups, and nice variety of sandwiches. There is a large selection of homemade desserts, but I am usually too full to try them. The service is the best in town. Locals always see someone they know, but the staff is so welcoming that even our visitors feel right at home. One can really get a sense of Potsdam in this diner: Potsdam natives, students from four colleges, and occasional Amish about to embark on a bus trip happily co-exist. We often lament that they close at 2 p.m., but we are grateful that they are still open. The wonderful previous owners retired, and found equally wonderful new owners. Village Diner is in Market Square, which is one block to the west of Market Street in downtown. It is cash only, but there is an ATM. The prices are very reasonable, and the portions are large.

“Brunch at a local diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My hosts have been regular clients at this place. It was packed on a Sunday morning so we were lucky to have the last available booth. I had eggs benedict - hearty and delicious. The place even has a contest for the hungry (probably college students with a big appetite) - ask for flapjack attack. The service was quick and our server was attentive and friendly. It is a good place to have breakfast.

“Hard to find, note the address or you'll miss it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had an excellent breakfast here. We had sought it out the previous evening when walking around Potsdam, and I had to Google it to find its location within a downtown shopping mall (which also includes the intercity bus depot), off the stree-plan behind the main street. It was worth the effort.

“Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Tis is a great place to have breakfast. Had pancakes, eggs and French toast. Coffee is always freshly brewed and they do not rush you out. We ate there almost everyday
