I hesitated to go to the diner as I imagined a typical greasy spoon diner meal. This is NOT is case! The food is fantastic, homemade and the portions are huge. Everything is really good. After lunch or diner their dessert selection is above and beyond! Buy one of their cakes or pies for your next party!

I stopped for lunch about 1:law30 ans was promptly greeted and seated. I ordered a hot pastrami and Swiss on toasted rye with a side of coleslaw. After a short wait I was served a sandwich with a more than reasonable amount of lean pastrami and meted cheese. It was delicious The coleslaw was also excellent, I just wish I... More

Huge variety of meals including Greek, Italian, and American. Service was spot on and food - cheese burger, Greek salad - was very good. All meals served as either dinner or luncheon portions.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. I'd never had matzo ball soup before and now I know what I was missing. Light and delicious, not at all like I'd pictured it. The Greek salad was huge and very well thought out with different veggies and not like the rest. Definitely recommend a stop here!

A great find. Good food. Generous portions. Reasonable prices. Just off the highway. I had a chicken salad sandwich, which was about 2" thick, and came with cole slaw (more healthy than the usual potato chips or French fries). Great coffee. I didn't have dessert, but the desserts looked wonderful. Fried food that others were eating looked very good. Not... More

Before moving out of Connecticut, I lived in Vernon and am quite familiar with this terrific restaurant. On a recent trip back home, I had breakfast there 4 times in 5 days! Great breakfast menu (and you can get it all day), but their sandwiches, meals and desserts are also very good. Most of their wait-staff have been with them... More

Consistently delicious food, great service and the absolute best German Chocolate cake I have ever had! We enjoy going there just for dessert and coffee.

Stopped for lunch, at this place, because my husband knew it and he knows, I love diners. Food was very good, but a large portion, we took the rest with us and ate it for dinner at the hotel that night, it was just too good to leave it behind. Had the very good Village Greek Salad, and my husband... More

My wife and I had a delicious breakfast there. She had a sausage egg and cheese on a hard roll and I had scrambled eggs with bacon sausage and toast it was very good. They're open 24 hours a day and the waitress was real friendly and gave good service.
