We stopped in for a late morning Sunday breakfast on our way back from Waterville. They sat all eleven of us, no problem. Wait staff was super friendly and their cup of Joe was really good! All eleven of us left with a full stomach and a smile on our face. We will definitely be repeat customers! Thanks

Great service, great food, no pushy waitstaff. Location is a little less than desirable, but the food makes up for it

Jerry + Tina care about the diner and people. Eat there at least three times a week. You will feel like family. The haddock plate is the best - not always on the menu but if you ask they usually have it. Mike B.

Always worth the ride, I live about one hour away but, love the food, atmosphere and staff so, it's worth it. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, all great, not sure I would be able to choose a favorite dish though!

Usually don't think of the diner because you have to go a little off the main drag, but this place is worth going back. Friendly waitstaff, super clean for an older diner and the food is freshly cooked. Portion was just right for the money.

Wow...just a small place that could easily be missed. Great food, my husband had steak and eggs and everything was cooked perfectly. I had a BLT with pan fries on the side. Great sandwich with plenty of bacon. The pan fries are the best we've ever had. Service was exceptional, coffee came frequently. Gretchen was our server; she is pleasant... More

I've written about lunch here in previous years, but their crowning achievement is breakfast. The chef Jerry is a bit of an artist, so there often are some exotic specials such as yellowfin tuna mixed in Eggs Benediction (very popular, I'm told) mixed with the American breakfast favorites (ours are the blueberry pancakes). Jerry's wife Tina is the (co?) owner... More

This diner is a regular on my eating out list. It is consistent with great food, huge portions, long time help and super fair prices. Breakfast today was no exception to that trend, my hash and cheese omelette was excellent as were my companions meals. This is a real locals joint with a horde of regulars who are greeted by...

We stop here often and the food is always delicious. Breakfast and lunch open late on Friday for dinner. Cannot beat the prime rib when they have it.
