I wish I could be more positive about Sandy's Diner because it is a local spot that has been there for many, many years. The problem is that time has not been kind to Sandy's. The menu hasn't change in the 20 plus years that it has been in downtown Chatham and the food has deteriorated during this time. While... More

Ordered hash. Smelled like Alpo. Couldn't begin to eat it. Toast was cold. Coffee watery. Eggs tasteless. A total disaster. Could be the worst diner I ever attempted to eat in my whole life.

This joint is so out of place in Chatham, it's wonderful. Sandi's is your atypical traditional, down home family breakfast place, on the main street in downtown Chatham. What makes it so out of place is Chatham itself. Chatham is the wealthiest enclave on Cape Cod, and besides the mega expensive lovely summer residences, downtown is akin to an upscale... More

Great diner with a classic breakfast menu, and fantastic prices. The staff were incredibly friendly, and you ring the bell on the way out if you enjoyed your meal. We rang it twice. Definitely will be back for breakfast on our next trip to Chatham.

After reading glowing reviews we were thoroughly disappointed. Pale pancakes that were doughy and thick and uneventful scrambled eggs lacking flavor. The coffee was tasteless. Had to stop at a nearby stand for coffee and a muffin.

Nothing really special, just good old main street food at a reasonable price. Waffle was actually very good, but could have been hotter. Coffee was, well, ....

Hearty servings of dine delights. Nice "regional" twist on Eggs Benedict and other diner standard fare. Nothing fancy but good food.
