This is the place to go if you are looking for classical diner fare. Nothing chi-chi about the place or the menu. Portions are just what you'd expect. I love the poached eggs on corned beef hash! And you can get raisin toast with it! They even know how to properly brew a pot of tea. Closes at 3 pm - so only breakfast and lunch available,

Another fabulous breakfast joint (hadn't had an opportunity to try it for lunch or dinner). Fast service, great food, reasonably priced, but get there early to avoid a long wait.

First and foremost this is a DINER, and features large portions of well prepared BASIC food.

Mike's is open 6 am to 3 pm, and serves breakfast and lunch, this is a cash only diner so be prepared.

A recent lunch visit started with a fresh New England Clam Chowder, and the famous pilgrim sandwich that was featured on the show, Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. The turkey is all that, it's fresh off the bone, and the stuffing is one of the best bread dressings that I have had.
(I was advised by a fellow diner to ask for a side of gravy with the Pilgrim). My dining partner had the Fish and Chips which were made from fresh cod, and fried the correct way.
Both lunch platters were served with a generous order of french fries, and yes, they were, NORMAL french fries (don't dare serve me sweet potato fries).

The breakfast dishes looked huge, and I did notice that grits were an available option at breakfast, not an easy thing to find in New England.

The wait staff is super busy, but also super friendly, and provide quick service.

Enjoy this Diner !

Our first time coming to Mike's City Diner, and we will definitely be back. Even though there was a line, we got seated pretty quickly. The food was delicious and came out quickly. The omelette was fantastic and the corned beef hash Benedict was delicious, there was nothing left on the plate.
