A cute little diner with an eclectic Americana decor. Don't be put off by the looks on the outside. The place is clean, the breakfasts were great and fun and that staff never said no to any request. After 3 days our server even knew who wanted coffee, who wanted tea and who got ice water as soon as we... More

So that this was a fair review, I actually had to wait a little while to calm down and think it over. Here on vacation and read raving reviews. I was excited to go, and ready to wait as this eatery is extremely small. We waited about 20 minutes and finally got seated. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.... More

The special was 2 eggs and a muffin. My wife and I watched as they went to the fridge to retrieve the muffins and then heat them up. Big disappointment for a diner, which usually does its own baking. Prices were great, but not impressed with the food quality at all

We always go to the Route 28 Diner when we are in South Yarmouth. The portions are just right and so is the price. They have some very unusual specials to try including the speed bumps! The best thing though is when there is quiche. I thought the steak and cheese quiche was going to be my favorite, but this... More

We met a friend at this restaurant and my partner and she had beef stew on a bed of mashed potatoes. According to them, it was OK but lacked a lot of beef. I had a chef's salad and it was awesome. It is a great place for breakfast as well. The ambiance of nostalgia was very enjoyable! By the... More

The decor here is old school road trip: license plates from the world over. The food is diner fare, too and it is served with a smile. Great breakfast value. Get the eggs Benedict!

Great service in a really cute old time diner. This place is the real deal. We had omelettes, eggs benedict, and linguica (a delicious Portuguese sausage).

My husband and I had breakface two times while visiting the area 9/2016. Looks like an old, quaint diner. Lots of automobile memorabilia. Place is small, wait staff is friendly and food was speedily delivered and very good! Lots of daily specials posted on the chalkboards. Check it out!

The food was honestly nothing spectacular. It was ok, we were full. Our waitress was fantastic. The host was also very pleasant. They seat you fast even when there is a wait.

Interesting and eclectic decor, excellent service, good coffee, and great food - what more could you want? The breakfast choices looked interesting, and I was tempted by the lemon poppy seed pancakes, but decided it was time for lunch. My grilled cheese sandwich was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of cheese, and a slice of ripe tomato. Just... More
