Bridget “with one T” was so hospitable and made us feel like we were visiting a long lost relative. She introduced us to all the regulars and was about as attentive as a server could be yet was not intrusive in any way. I was...going to get the sausage Benedict but she suggested the pastrami instead and while I was hesitant I went with her recommendation and it melted in my mouth. Couldn’t recommend this place any higher.More

The minute you sit down you are greeted by such a friendly staff. You can tell that many people who go to eat here, come back again and again because this place makes you feel like home. I love the food, I love the decor....Even my little granddaughter loves going there. I'm so happy this type of place exists with such a friendly homestyle feel to it. Susan, Tyngsboro, MAMore

Had breakfast there this morning with 2 friends. We all had been there many times but it never occurred to me to do a review. The place is amazing. Nicely decorated in lots of Betty Boop theme. The staff is wonderful and they make everyone...feel welcome. Kind of reminds me of "Cheers", where everyone knows your name. It is a great way to start the day. You can not possibly leave there hungry or sad! Bridget is a hot ticket. Certainly makes you laugh. So energetic, vivacious with fun stories to share. Makes a big thing about 1st time customers to Dream Diner. An experience that will bring you back time and time again. My friends and I love the place. Did I mention the food? Huge menu with great service and delicious food. You can even start your day off with a Bloddy Mary or Mimosa. We will definitelybe back.More

I was very disappointed with our most recent trip to the Dream Diner. In past visits, we were impressed by the upbeat atmosphere and friendly service. We felt it was the perfect spot to take our toddlers for their 3rd birthday breakfast! We left feeling...upset and definitely not going to be returning. We were sat quickly which was great, however the waitresses were bickering that we shouldn't have been sat at the table we were sat at. I am assuming it either wasn't her table or her turn. Regardless it was not our fault and we should not have then been rushed as we were because of it. The waitress came over twice before we even all had our coats off and settled. We sat near the coffee machine and over heard the waitresses speaking rudely to each other and about other customers frequently! Unacceptable. At one point, my wife took our two toddlers to the bathroom before we left. I over heard one waitress say go another “His wife and child went to the bathroom clearly they got lost in there…” as they were anxious to reseat our table. It took everything I had to not turn around and say something as I understand it is a stressful time for everyone, especially in the food industry, but completely disrespecting each other and paying customers is simply unacceptable. We have been there when the owner has been present and it’s disappointing to see how different the atmosphere is when she is not there. Very unfortunate as the food itself, was very good (pricey for a small portion but we like to support local restaurants over chains). However I will not support a rude wait staff.More

Like moths to the flame, we try and try again every few years. We hadn’t been since pre-Covid and their building addition and expansion. Nothing on the menu was under $10. An omelet averages $14 + with up charges for egg beaters or egg whites....Marybeth the owner made quite the show by asking her patrons to clap for the retirement or birthdays for those she knew. The food remains mediocre for the price point. There’s no healthier options available in the meats. But there is an extensive alcohol beverage menu available, if you like to get liquored up at 8am. Food is served quickly and is bland tasting.More

The food at the Dream Diner is fantastic, but even better is the service!! Bridget (with one T ) was so welcoming and helpful. She made us feel like instant friends! The whole crew is hustling and working hard, but never forget to be kind...and helpful to every customer. The menu has so many options that it is difficult to choose. The cinnamon buns are to die for! Our meals were cooked to perfection and we enjoyed every bite. The coffee is hot and plentiful! This place is a gem, and we will be back very soon and hopefully have Bridget again. She is a hoot.More

After a recent disappointment at another breakfast place, this was a breath of fresh air. Busy on a Friday, short staffed like every restaurant, but we were still seated promptly and the coffee was delicious. Huge omelette and Benedict selections. Interesting combos, I had a...pastrami Benedict, and my wife a kielbasa and onion omelette. All perfectly cooked. Will go again, have to try homemade cinnamon roll French toast.More

Short of breakfast options while on a weekend wedding trip, we relied on Google and found this absolute gem! Upon arriving we were greeted/served by Bridete, who was hands down the best waitress we’ve ever had. She was not only knowledgeable on the menu and...options, but allowed us to try their amazing pastrami before ordering AND was absolutely hilarious the entire time. Her joking and friendly personality made our experience there. The food was served quickly, was hot and delicious. Prices can’t be beat for the portions. We loved it so much we went back the next day. Bridgete not only remembered us, but she remembered our first and last names. If you are in the area and travel there, ask for her. You will not be dissappointed. Tell her the Oliveira family sent you! Bridgete if you get a chance to read this. We will never forget you! You are amazing and we appreciate you’re service and dedication! We will be back!More

Took a friend to parlee farms blueberry picking and she asked if we could go to breakfast. We usually go to Donna's in Hudson but we were going right by the dream diner on the way home. We walked in and immediately looked at each...and said its warm in here and asked to be seated away from the door in the next section which our waitress Joanne said no problem. She immediately brought us coffee and gave us a few minutes to look over the menu. Came back and took our order and mentioned that the older lady with glasses wanted her to move us into the first section. I said are you serious? I guess the older woman just put the a/c on and wanted our section to stay clean. I said we are adults not children so we wont be making a mess today. Our waitress was very understanding and was not going to move us anywhere. I said to my friend if we had to get up after sitting there for 10 min and move, I will be walking out that door and never return. During the entire dinning, that older lady I think I heard someone call her bridgette but I could be wrong, she would give us that stare. Joanne was one of the best waitresses we ever had and tipped her at 30%. The food was very good, hot, tasty and reasonable. The food, service, all get a 5 star. The older lady needs to chill out abit and relax.More
