This place is awesome for breakfast. Omelets are fluffy, well filled with whatever type of add-ons you like, and large. Their home fried potatoes are the real deal too. Thinly sliced and delicious. Coffee is always good and refills come by on a regular basis. Don't panic if the parking lot is full, as inside the place is huge. We... More

The clerk at the Holiday Inn recommended this diner, so we took a chance. It was a good choice. They have breakfast meals all day, and I selected the liver and onions dish. Three large pieces of liver....rated as a (9) My wife's pancakes were OK but nothing special. Looks like lots of locals eat at the restaurant which is... More

We stopped here after a day trip out driving for hours. A good choice. Huge portions of good old-fashioned home cooking. All day breakfast is available. I had pancakes and an egg. The egg was perfect and the pancakes were plate-sized. Even with only 2 of them (my choice), I could not finish them both. Hubby had a sandwich and... More

The food is okay, nothing fancy and the prices are average. There is a salad station but has a very limited variety of salad items. The restaurant itself is extremely dated and desperately needs to be remodeled. Don't go thinking you will come out raving about the taste of the food being something you will remember.

We've been coming to the Cambridge Diner for almost 10 years now, primarily for breakfast. The breakfasts are well done, with lots of variety and sides available and if you like liver and onions, Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes, or any of those good old dishes served by a waitress who calls you hon, then you'll love it here.

Went to the diner on the way out of town. Wished it was on the way in as we would have gone more often. Food was fast and the portions were big enough. I would go back next time we're in Cambridge. One thing, don't order scrapple. I took one for the team.

We stopped here as we got into town late after getting lost and the diner was very close by to our hotel and we weren't expecting much. We were extremely pleased with this diner! Great value - for about $15 we got a three course meal that included all you can eat salad bar with good variety, spring greens instead... More
