5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

A diner with very good unpretentious diner food, that in one sentence is what Cromwell diner is. Not more needs to be said.

“Where's my waitress? ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Coming to this diner is always a great experience. The food is always fast and taste so fresh. Yesterday I had meatloaf with there veggie of the day, which apparently is always broccoli. (Even though I didn't order it) Their portions are HUGE enough to feed two. Every time I go I happen to get the same waitress, be it morning, afternoon, night, or after the bar. She's amazing. She always makes me feel like I am company at her own house. This time though I had this sloppy looking waiter that didn't check up on me and got my order wrong. Even with the order wrong the food was good so no need to complain. I'll def ask for my waitress next time.
They serve alcohol here too. They need to expand there selection though.
This diner is so close to the highway, gas station, walmart. It is great and definitely beats going to fast food.

“Nice Breakfast, Friendly Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

My wife and I had a nice breakfast here during a weekend stop for a wedding in Middletown. We went on a Sunday morning at 8:30. It's a pretty big place so there was no wait. The waitress was friendly and tried to warn that a full stack of pancakes would be too much. I enjoyed the pancakes and my wife enjoyed her Eggs.
