Remembering the locals that are no longer with us. The older gentleman and his dog (sitting in the front seat of his truck). Everytime we visited this establishment he would be there with other men. This is a very friendly and wonderful place to get...a fantastic breakfast and a good way to start your day. We love the waffles. Just know it's cash only.More

We were so happy to visit route 28 diner after what we've all been through. They had limited seating due to covid. Food was wonderful and the owners are just as pleasant as they've been before the whole covid pandemic. So glad they are open....Got a fantastic bagel, sausage, cheese and egg sandwich. Wow, wonder why my sandwiches I make don't taste as good as theirs. Remember, CASH only.More

Stopped in here for lunch. Read previous reviews and decided to go for it. We were in a good location so it was a 20 minute walk. The food was amazing. We had the trail chicken salad and fried bologna grilled cheese. Now that's not...something you see many places so I indulged. Food was delicious prices reasonable and following all covid precautions.More

We always enjoy experiencing diners whenever we travel. We stopped her for lunch and they are abiding by the COVID-19 limitations but the food was wonderful. I had the trail chicken salad sandwich and my husband had the taco plate. Both were served promptly by...the most friendly server and the food was delicious!More

Good breakfast place. Limited indoor seating now available. A few outdoor tables, too. Loved the oatmeal (with raisins) and corned beef hash. Waffles okay. Didn’t like the coffee. Friendly service. They didn’t have any carriers for takeout, so was very inconvenient when taking coffees and...oatmeals (served in large cups for takeout) to the car and transporting. Plenty of parking in front of the restaurant. Good prices.More

This place is our go to when on Cape. The serving sizes are perfect. Most places give you so much food it is a waste. This place gives you the right amount. The food is always consistent and everyone is so friendly. They always have...cool specials to try as well. One of my favorites is the blueberry Benedict!More

Breakfast always seem to be so much more important and exciting when on vacation and one of my favorite Cape Cod places for the first meal of the day is the Route 28 Diner.

This trip I got the "pit stop" 2 pancakes (which I took home, too much food) 2 pieces of French toast and 2 pieces of waffles, which seems to be the half of a regular waffle. So much food and delicious. Just remember Cash Only!

Yes, all the times we've been the parking was free. This is a small establishment with a old time theme. Model cars on the walls. Fun place to eat.
