A true family style american diner. Sunday was busy with regulars and talk. Cozy place, good selections, very nice people, servers and customers. Breakfast was done well, eggs over easy, potato pancakes, 3-egg omelette with spinach and feta, toast, coffee. All properly made and good. Considering the crowd we did have to wait a little bit for breakfast to arrive,... More

On trip advisor I found that this had great reviews. For good reasons. We both had the Big Breakfast which was just that! Everything fresh. Pancakes were right off the griddle and not greasy like you tend to find. Everything else followed the same quality. When in Manchester again, this will be on our places to stop.

Four of us ate there today. I had the big breakfast, which is truly big. You may have to wait for a table, however it's worth it. Very good scrambled eggs and bacon just the way i like it (crunchy- soft-perfectly cooked, etc ). Pancakes cover the plate completely, and the coffee is good too. One advantage the smaller diners...

After dropping my mom off at the airport at 6 am we were starved and found this little diner to pop into for breakfast. It opens at 6, we got there at 6:12 and the place was already busy. It has a very authentic diner feel, with a small counter with stools and several booths. There appeared to be just... More

I ordered the club sandwitch and it was good. They have fresh cut fries which I love. The only complaint that I have is that the booths were cramped. There does not seem to enough places to sit

Small diner for breakfast and lunch. We have eaten there several times with always great food and service. The friendly atmosphere makes patrons feel right at home. We usually go for breakfast and Boston's Best Coffee is served, which easily passes the first test of any breakfast joint. The pan fries are the way pan fries should be, grilled to... More

Had had breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings. This is a great place if you want delicious, real food prepared and served by real people. Sunday at 8:30 A.M., I got the last open table; it's that popular! I don't think you'd ever find Margie's by accident; it seems to be the place locals go. The service was excellent, the price...

I just wish this place was better, our visit was a very mixed affair. Even with the mostly good reviews here, our selections were only fair to poor. My Greek omelet was pretty fair. My wife's spinach pie was the shocker. Warmed up in the microwave, the pie lacked flavor and obviously was not fresh. We should have been warned... More

Stopped for lunch on a whim. Pleasantly surprised. A little off the beaten path. Open for breakfast and lunch. Service was friendly. Accepts credit cards except for Am/Ex. Quality yummy breakfast fare like omelets, skillets, pancakes. Burgers and sandwiches. Really good fries. Real turkey on the open face turkey sandwich. Tasty coffee too. Small but comfortable surroundings. Reasonable prices. I... More
