I always enjoy going to the Hope Diner. It's a colorful little place, often full of characters. The cook works in the main room and keeps up some banter with fellow staff and customers. The food is good, too, and the prices low to fair....More

We love diners and have eaten at plenty, and this diner is far far far from "typical diner fare." Each time we try a different place we realize how good we have it at the Hope Diner! Family run, family friendly, great service, personal attention...More

The staff was so nice, they knew everyone and everyone knew them. The chef personally came over to check on the food and to chat with the diners. It is cash only so make sure to have some one you. With that being said the...More

The Hope Diner not only dishes out tasty meals -- great eggs, bacon, pancakes, potatoes, sandwiches, etc. -- but also a lot of atmosphere, with the chef in the middle of the dining area, chatting with co-workers and customers. It's a friendly place.

Have had breakfast here several times. Food is typical diner fare with an old time atmosphere. Last time I had fish hash which was a new thing to me. It was good but not great. Service is good and prices moderate.

This is the real deal folks, it is not a TV "that is so cute place"! Do expect good food, because that is what has had me coming back for more than 40 years.

This place is fun because of the characters there, such as the cook, who's often talking loudly to customers and staff alike. It's a friendly place with fine breakfasts and more. I've just had simple egg dishes, but have heard good things about the omelets...More

Whenever we visit good friends in Bristol, we head to the Hope Diner for breakfast for Bobby-O omelets, home fries, chorizo sausage and sweet Portuguese bread. All are served by long time staff who are wonderful. Don't try to go to the Hope if you're...More
