Had breakfast here as the line was too long in the Keltic Kitchen. Service was quick. Coffee was good. Overall a good little diner with friendly staff and reasonable prices. I would come here again.

Coming from the Uk, I made a point of looking into different places to eat while we stayed in South Yarmouth. I spotted this little gem. On our first morning in SY I said to my family that we shoule give it a go. We had eaten on the run previously in NYC, pastries and coffee. And only once more... More

We go multiple times when we visit the Cape. Always good and interesting breakfasts (e.g Bologna sliders, lemon poppy pancakes, etc). Great, friendly service as well.

The 28 Diner is what I look for in a diner. The food is exceptional, while the atmosphere of the diner is great. When in Yarmouth, always visit here!

My family are here twice during our stay on the Cape last week. Yes, it is cash only. However, they offer great diner food at very fair prices. A wide variety for breakfast. The staff was friendly.

I really like this place. You walk in to a 50's style diner with records embossed on the tables, model cars on shelves on the wall and Elvis stuff in display cases under the middle counters. Good food and reasonable prices. Warning: cash only and they do only breakfast and dinner. Right on route 28, so good place to stop... More
