Fun, no frills, good food. As a transplanted southerner, this is my go-to place for grits! Remember, cash only.

The Modern Diner is a historical diner on East Ave. in Pawtucket.
The breakfast menu is extensive - together with specials - including items like linguica hash.
The food and service are very good - and reasonable.
It's relatively small and old - and can get busy on weekends.

This is definitely the place for breakfast on this side of town!! Their specials are amazing and their cheese grits are to die for. It looks like a broken down place, but the front is an original diner from the 1940's. Service is great, coffee is good, and the prices are reasonable. Always a line waiting to get in on the weekends.

This diner is a little gem! The atmosphere gives the feeling of an old time diner; great down to earth food for reasonable prices with a very helpful and friendly staff. Try the meatloaf; just like mom used to make. My wife and I have been going there for years and have always had a good experience. Lunch during the week; no waiting. On weekends the line forms early for the excellent gourmet breakfasts.
Try it, you'll love it. Just remember it is a diner not a "Fine Dining Establishment". Go with that in mind and you will have a good time and leave full.

I love going to this old diner. They have plenty of parking and I go there every so often. Ever since the management has changed, I don't know when, the food went from so so edible to fantastic. I had cheese grits, fried eggs with home fries and toast and coffee. My friend had coffee and the Gimmie Jimmie. Service was great but that has always been pretty good.
