I would definitely eat here again. If you prefer maple syrup you can get that for .99 extra. I had the french toast (was shocked at the thickness of it) and well done bacon. I always ask for it well done and it came out perfect the first time (I usually have to send it back to be put on... More

I absolutely love this place and the staff. I always get the sane thing which is an omlette and always has been consistent. Jennifer always waits on me and my boyfriend and she's amazing always smiling and being so friendly.

Hot fresh breakfast with a smile. Excellent coffee. Banana nut French toast came with fresh sliced bananas, pecans and whipped cream and sprinkled with powdered sugar. I had the pplain french toast with powdered sugar. Ask for warm syrup. Meg was an awesome server with a beautiful smile. She kept the coffee coming. Breakfast for 2 unlimited coffee 18 bucks.

I'm amused at the folks who have done reviews noting that the food wasn't amazing. Did you not see DINER in the name. This is a place for a filling and tasty breakfast, served fast and guaranteed to fill you up. It is a local place and they know to keep it simple, and get it right and be consistent.... More

We had brunch here with family while visiting from out of state. The diner is quite small and very crowded in terms of layout - owners trying to maximize seating haven't necessarily given thought to ease of movement. There is one small bench for waiting that will fit four people. We were seated fairly promptly but because there were only... More

My fiancé and I ate here for lunch, so I can't vouch for how good the breakfast is. The menu offers mostly breakfast items, and they also offer breakfast all day. There are a good about of lunch food options as well - including burgers, sandwiches, salads and tacos. We got the burger melt which came on grilled marble rye.... More

OK, it's a franchise, in a strip mall, but a great diner concept. We visited on a Saturday, late morning, very short wait. Sat inside, in a booth (patio looked great but was a bit chilly). I had to order that crazy thick French toast-airy & crisp but really just a vehicle to deliver the Vermont maple syrup. Stole my... More
