We love to try local diners as we travel these United States and believe me, this is one of the best. We stopped here based on TA reviews & so glad we did. It does look awful on the outside but so cute and clean inside. We were greeted with a friendly smile and told to sit where we wished.... More

We wanted to try this 'diner' for a week. We finally found ourselves in Putney at 10:)) am and took the opportunity to give it a try. It looks like nothing from the outside. Actually it looks closed up, run down and abandoned. The inside is sparkling, charming and clean. A real local spot where the friends are many the... More

Been going here for years and some things after the new owners took over have improved. I think the last couple of times we went the service is better. There are less options on the menu then before which can be a good thing but I was sad to lose a lot of the veggie options that they had before... More

but bless its heart for still being there. I love it, but it's more out of nostalgia. Been going there for 25 years. The chocolate milk shakes are still great and bring up excellent memories of eating with my children.

IF you want to get "Fed UP" on a Great Breakfast, this is the place to GO! Almost more than you can eat, tasty, a fair price and Top Notch Service!

Not too fancy, friendly service, breakfast all day! And, fresh spinach for the omelet! We all enjoyed our meals, left satisfied, and the price was reasonable. Well done.

The Putney Diner offers a wide variety of options for both breakfast and lunch. Personally, I love the Cajun Skillet with added hot sausage for breakfast and their mozzarella sticks with homemade tomato sauce for lunch. My fiance has a bit of an obsession with their Irish omelette (it has corn beef hash right in it) and we both love... More

My husband and I have been known to take trips to Putney from CT just to have the Green Mountain Special (meatloaf sandwich with white cheddar and cranberry sauce). We had it again this trip, along with the Thanksgiving Day After, and both the sandwiches were just a yummy as we remember. However, the sides that came along with them... More

Putney Diner offers just what you would expect: pancakes, sandwiches, drip coffee. Nothing spectacular. Seem to reject the Vermont fresh and local theme: nothing organic, fresh, or local here. The sugar is white, the cream is packed in plastic, meats are ultra processed. It's a diner, no more or less.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon-it was quiet. We ordered wings and potato skins- they were awful. The skins were cold and we had to wait 15 minutes for the same food to be returned just a fraction hotter! Our mains of burgers took 30 mins to come after out starters and again they were not great. This place looks... More
