The fish and chips were great. So fresh that the fish was very flakey and just melted in your mouth. The turkey salad was super. Roasted turkey - not pressed meat and the vegetables were very fresh with a nice sauce. The staff were so nice and friendly which is what we got used to in the Maritimes.

Went to Carman's Diner expecting an OK meal, but was very surprised at the Senior price menu. For $8 we had a lovely small portion dinner of Haddock for me and roast pork for my partner we also got a drink and dessert. The service was polite and attentive. The value excellent!

Carmen's Diner never disappoints with their delicious home-style food, their extremely friendly and comfortable service, and their cozy atmosphere. The way they treat their customers big & small is an inspiration. I have gone here since I was a baby and will continue to go!
