“Cromwell Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The food was excellent with home cooked taste. Food presentation was excellent, warm entrees came warm and cold drinks were served cold. The service was timely and with welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Jennifer our server was pleasant and friendly. She accommodated our requests and made my Family enjoyed our food and our brief friendly visit. The place was very clean and orderly. The restrooms were well lit and clean.

“Great East Coast Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had breakfast at the Cromwell Diner while in the area at the Brownstone Park. The diner was very spacious and clean and had a nice retro look.

The service was very, very attentive and the food came fast. I never had to wait to ask to have my coffee refilled.

The omelet was very nice and french toast as well.

All you can ask for in a diner.

“Fast and Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Close to I 91. Excellent 5.99 lunch specials. Delicious and fluffy blueberry pancakes were served in less then 5 mins. Cheerful, speedy service, which is great when you're on the road.

“No Finer Diner Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

There are zillions of diners in the U.S. and they are usually indistinguishable from each other. Occasionally, you happen upon one that stands out. This is the Cromwell Diner in the Connecticut town of the same name. The food was excellent, but the best part of the experience was our waiter, Emil. This is the waiter you always want to have take care of you and if I go back to this place, I would request him by name. Great, thoughtful, pleasant service that was just outstanding.

“Better breakfast alternative than BK or McDonalds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were driving through Connecticut and decided to stop for a little break at Burger King which is down the road. I noticed a sign for a diner and we chose to eat here instead. This is a much better choice than the fast food breakfast. The breakfast specials range from $4.50-$8.00. Breakfast with coffee for 2 people was $11+. The portions were OK, a bit on the smaller side. My only small complaint is the lack of tea choices. It was between green tea and chamomile and I would have preferred an el grey or any black tea, even Lipton. Other than that the service was attentive and fast.
