This classic "grass strip" attracts general aviation enthusiasts, antique airplane buffs and anyone who enjoys watching planes. With just 2000 feet of turf runway and a pilots' lounge that's a throwback to the good old days, You'll see plenty of interesting planes and the people who fly them! Daring visitors can take a "thrill ride" in an historic 1930 New Standard open-air biplane and fly over the nearby beaches Hampton Airfield has had continuous Piper Cub training since 1946. Open Deck Cafe 7AM - 2PM

This is a great place to enjoy a good breakfast while taking in a unique view. Depending on the weather, you can eat inside or out. Free parking lot adjacent to restaurant. Always interesting - and the food is good too!

A family-run business who treats you like you're family. Plenty of food on your plate. Servers are kind and attentive. Either breakfast or lunch, the food is delicious! Sitting on an airfield, you can watch the planes take-off and land. There's indoor and outdoor seating. It's very small and always full! The locals call it their own.

Not only is the food good, the airplanes are fun to watch!! More activity in the summer months, but always a good alternative in the off-months too.

We keep going back. Food is good american food, well prepared and enjoyable. The service is friendly, the plates are alway full of food which is prepared as requested, meaning rare, medium and well done.

Great for breakfast. Had their crab cake Benedict and it was very good. Coffee was hot and the service was friendly. Plan on a wait if you choose to go there on the weekend.

I have been to the Airport Diner several times in the past few months. While I consider the food to be above average, the preparation and service staff have been spotty. Eggs well done when they were ordered over, coffee refills have been forgotten, small things to be sure, but things than can spoil a mea.

Hampton Airfield is a historic site (started in the 40's) which until recently was a grass only strip. Now there is a paved runway and taxiways alongside the grass. Best of both worlds. Awesome Airfield Cafe with excellent breakfast and lunch food. Only open until 2 pm, but worth the visit. In summer, you can eat out on the deck... More

This is an old time airfield with alot of small planes. Control tower was redone recently. There is a small restaurant there but has never been open while I have been on premises. If your heading North on Rt 1 it is on the right, kind of a nondescript road. If you reach the Harley dealer you have gone to... More
