Down home family resturant. Great food. Good price for the amount of food. Loved all the Pyrex and Coke Cola stuff.

Family friendly diner with homemade comfort food! Great prices and good soup, cash only! A must see is the unique display of the palette of Pyrex pieces. Great prices, good quality.

I read the other reviews before going to Donna's and I am not sure what all the negativity is about. It's a diner, people!! Basic menu with yummy food. The specialty steak breakfast sandwich was pretty darned good as was the french toast. My eggs were done right and the coffee was fine. The staff was very accommodating and quite... More

I used to visit this place and the food was great and the staff was very friendly. The last two visits the food has been ok and the waiter was nice but the owner was not very welcoming

Mediocre food, chintzy decor, curt attitude from waitperson, limited menu and hours. It's inexpensive so there's that. Haven't returned.

After spending $20 for 2 eggs, toast, ham, home fries and coffee at the big hotel just down the street, spending $9 for the same thing is a steal. Only difference is the table cloth and napkins, coffee in a... More

Stopped in for breakfast with another couple. Kind of a run down place. Waitress didn't seem to happy to be there. Worst of all, they were all out of home fries at 10:30 am! How does that happen at a breakfast restaurant?

My friend and I were in town to spend a few days checking out the museum and such and wound up eating breakfast here all 3 days. The food was great. No problems with eggs, bacon, hotcakes or the fantastic French toast. I also enjoyed the apple streusel pie and blueberry cobbler. Both are homemade and I wished I had... More

I think all of the reviews heightened my expectations. Food was average, nothing special. Service was fine. Price was good. Dish collection impressive.
