“Great Stop For Breakfast”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Never has been a disappointment for me. Courteous wait staff. Food is good value for the buck. If there was even the slightest problem, they were more than happy to resolve it for me as a customer. Great atmosphere and busy much of the time! Cheers, Don

“Exactly what a diner should be”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We took our family of 4 to Dave's on a Sunday morning recently. Excellent, attentive and friendly service greeted us and continued throughout breakfast. The food choices were better than average for a diner, and the flavors of the pancakes, french toast, and other offerings were quite good. Our youngest son (age 11 at the time) called the M&M pancakes "amazing". Prices were very reasonable. Not a lot of space for dining, so if there's a lot of cars, you might want to come back. Definitely check this spot out.

“Good food and comfortable atmosphere”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

My wife and stopped here recently and were pleasantly surprised.

I had the pigs on a blanket and she had the chicken salad sandwich. I tasted her sandwich and it was awesome. Nice fresh flavor and spiced with a little curry. The bread wad fresh and her fries were good but a little mushy.

My pigs in a blanket were good but they tasted a tiny bit like old or burned butter. I think they just need to wipe down the griddle more often. Other than that it was great. Comfy atmosphere too. The prices were okay but not great for what you get.

“My favorite lunch spot on Route 20”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We stopped here for lunch despite having had a somewhat late breakfast. As usual, the service was friendly, fast and efficient. We came on a Sunday, and most people were having brunch. We opted for sandwiches. Mine was the Athena, with spinach, feta and cream cheese, roasted peppers in a grilled flatbread. YUM! Hubby enjoyed a thick corned beef sandwich, which was lean and flavorful. The coleslaw was freshly made, with a minimum of dressing. My only disappointment was that we stopped on a weekend. On weekdays, they bring the check with a warm cooky. If you stop, be sure to check out the gift shop next door. They have beautiful items that have been made by local artisans. Well worth the time.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Good food, if plain. Service from barista could be a bit quicker, but quality is acceptable for sure.
