“Super 1950s Style Diner Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This restaurant gets 5 stars for super. Super time-warp with converted trolley car, juke box at the table and black & white tile. Super prices - not exactly 1950s prices but so low that I was surprised at the tiny tab for 3 lumberjack-size lunches. Super delicious scallops. And, just like the old days, a super long walk to the bathrooms. Not a problem - allows lunch to settle so there's room for dessert. Fun lunch adventure with courteous girl-next -door type service. We'll be back.

“Server was bored out of her mind”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

While trying to find downtown Northampton, we stumbled on this cool looking diner. The Silk City Tap Room sign caught our attention and we assumed the two were one and the same. The diner is in the front of the Tap Room and the diner is where we ended up. We only wanted a cup of coffee and some chowder. The poor server must have been having a very bad day. She was simply miserable to us. The clam chowder, however, was VERY good. Just enough thyme in it. Thyme can be overdone making things taste like dirt. This was good. We probably won't come back here.

“They were standing out the door when I arrived”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I do not live here, buy have been coming here for more than 30+ yrs.

Service is always nice and friendly, and fast

This place is an institution in the area.

For a good breakfast, or other meal with friendly service, make sure you visit Miss Florence Diner next time you are in town.

“Its not the same as it once was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

It just OK now,,, used to have so much character and personalities. I always had to go when home to visit, The last few times it just wasn't same vibe. The Blue Bonnet is now the Diner of choice for me.

“A True New England Diner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

As I have mentioned in my other reviews, I am a bit of a purist when it comes to "diners." It's all about the comfort food, the personalized service, the period architecture and the overall ambience of the place. Although I've visited "Miss Flo's" previously, this is my first review. The place satisfies every one of my criteria for a "true" diner. The food is plentiful and tasty and is served by a very friendly and attentive staff. Coffee cups are constantly refilled. The menu offers something for everyone but don't miss the corned-beef hash for breakfast and the meatloaf for supper.
Finally, while you're here, take a few minutes and really look around the place. It truly captures the essence of these casual stainless steel eateries found predominantly in New England and the Northeast. This one is a lovingly maintained classic 70+ year old Worcester Lunch Car and it, the booth jukeboxes, and the 50s-era music will really take you back to a kinder, gentler time in America.
