“A slice of what is great about America!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Recently written up and a front page story In the New York Times, this quaint little family-owned restaurant is worth your time to go experience! Home cooked food that is delicious. Service that is very professional, prompt and very down-homey. All the stresses of the day just seem to fade away while you're sitting in there enjoying the ambience. There's absolutely nothing to be disappointed about at Donna's Diner. If you are ever in the area, be sure to make make this part of your schedule. Cheers!

“An authentic place; good breakfasts, good people”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This diner was featured in a massive article in The New York Times about a week ago. As I was passing through the area I thought I'd stop in and check Donna's out. Three generations were working that day, and it was a pleasure chatting with each of them. The breakfast platter was plentiful and many of the ingredients (sausage gravy, kielbasa) were homemade. I later enjoyed a Reuben, which is something I generally don't like under any circumstances. Check it out; it's pleasant, it's on the town square, and it's run by some great people.
