We got there when they first open luckily because it is a very small place. The waitress was tremendous. The food was hot fresh and delicious. I had the sausage gravy over biscuits with two scrambled eggs on the side and started my day great. My kids have the French toast and they love theirs also. The price is definitely... More

I've been to Cooperstown twice, once with my wife and once with our family. Both times we went to the Cooperstown Diner for breakfast. It is a cute little place that serves up the perfect breakfast before you go about your day. The waitstaff was friendly and the food was perfect. I will always make it a point to stop... More

Very reasonable breakfast and lunch options. The pancakes are wonderful - they melt in your mouth. They are known for breakfast and their "jumbo" burger which can easily be shared between two people. I recommend the lemonade to drink. Free refills and it is refreshing. Southerners may have to add a little sweetener, but otherwise it was good. We went... More

I have a love of old diners and must visit at least one during our family travels which I have over 30 years of diner adventures. I waited 25 minutes to grab a table as this diner was on my bucket list. What a mistake. I spent the whole lunch apologizing to my family for making them eat here. First... More

I reviewed this Diner a few years ago and at the time it was not your best choice for eating in Cooperstown. That certainly has changed. The place was bright, cheerful and full of the noise you love if you love diners. The menu (breakfast all day!) was just right. The food (a tuna melt with sides and a grilled... More

The space is small and cramped which really makes the bad food so not worth even stopping in for. Sometimes the staff is pleasant and sometimes it is not.

Family of seven enjoyed our lunch in Cooperstown. Ages 10-70 were pleased with the selections offered. The service was excellent even though the place was packed. It was recommended by one of the docents at the Baseball Hall of Fame. When in the area will return again. A super time was had by all.

This is a small place. And it looks kinda run down. And you have to go through the kitchen to go to the restrooms. But you know it's a good place to eat when the locals outnumber the tourists. We had breakfast here and it was really tasty. We would come back again. For sure!

You would never know it from the outside, the place isn't much larger than a shoebox, but I had two breakfasts here and they were great. Don't come here with a crowd. They don't take reservations and the place is very small. If you get there after 9 you're most likely going to wait. There is table service and counter... More
