Small diner in strip mall with interior tired and in need of updating. This is the only negative as the food was very good with large portions. Always busy with many repeat local customers. Will go back.

Walked into a smoky hole. Smoke from the kitchen falls on the customer seating area, my clothes now stink! Chair coverings are ripped and catch on clothing. Shoes stuck to washroom floor, grease is on doors and walls about 12" up from floor. Home fries were brown/black and dripping with grease. Surprised the health board hasn't shut them down. Watched...

Great hole in the wall restaurant with lots of locals having breakfast. Charlie was great at getting us coffee and great food. Good coffee with real half and half. Generous portions and everything served was hot, cooked perfectly. They use good ingredients, meats, real butter, and the food reflects that. Highly recommended!

Fantastic place! Yes, it is small, seating for 69, including counter. In season, Nov to May, it can be crowded. Food is excellent, service is quick and staff is friendly. Worth the wait, for sure. We are local residents

The locals eat here, it is a small, nothin' fancy diner in a strip mall. The wait staff is friendly and pleasant, the food portions are generous and the food is always served hot and delicious. It is fairly priced. It is a nice change from franchises, and the only place we go for breakfast.

Good, hot home cooked food at reasonable prices. Everything was awesome, but, we especially liked the sausage gravy and biscuits. They cut the baked biscuits in half then butter them and put them on the grill giving them a tasty crunch. This is a small old time diner in an old strip mall with a dozen tables at most, but,...

Went for late breakfast and was so pleased. It reminded me of the small mom and pop places I visited as a child back in rural Ohio. Food is not healthy, but for a special treat it was just the right thing. I am a chef and it was a real treat to have breakfast at the counter just like... More

Busy as they were the waitress(owner) had to clear a table in order for us to be seated.. It was a full house with tables for about 25 and a... More

Sweets Diner is a local favorite for breakfast. The place may not be much to look at but the food is excellent and includes some northern favorites like scrapple and pork roll. The southern style gravy is to die for! There is usually a line on the weekends but it's worth the wait.
