Been going to Cindy's for years. Great food, good atmosphere. Would highly recommend it! The garbage plate and the turkey burger are my favorite!

I love to stop at Cindy's whenever I'm downtown at lunch time for the Garbage. There's always great conversation and the food never disappoints.

Great restaurant for local color. It's a good "greasy spoon," and the people running the place generally have solid diner attitudes, but they generally keep it clean.

I love Cindy's Diner. It's simple, stick-to-your-ribs food, served up pleasantly in a unique, friendly setting. If you're looking for a private, quiet meal, this isn't the place for you. If you enjoy chatting with the locals, sharing laughs, and sliding down one seat to make room for others, you'll have a ball!!! Cindy's is a long-time Fort Wayne favorite,... More

We had been meaning to come here for quite some time and finally were able to and it did not disappoint. Food is very standard diner food, but also very excellently done. The ladies and young man that were working made it a nice visit as well, and the other patrons made the whole thing feel like a true diner.... More

Cindy's Diner is a neat little restaurant. The food is great and their Garbage breakfast is a hit with many customers. It seats less than 20 people and a friendly place to be.

Such a fun diner to have lunch at. As so much biking in Fort Wayne, a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch! I had a tuna salad sandwich on toasted sourdough bread. The tuna salad tasted like my Grandma made it. I also had a chocolate Murphy's doughnut. Delicious!

What a gem in downtown FW. I had the garbage plate and dad had the BLT. The food is no frills. But that's not why you go here. It's an old fashioned diner with only15 red upholstered stools around a counter. You are elbow to elbow with your neighbor. There are a couple,of tables outside. The wait for food was... More

Very cool little diner in the heart of downtown. Only fifteen stools available at a time to sit. We had breakfast and it was delightful. Service and waitress were friendly and efficient, although I didn't get a coffee refill. Worth the stop for breakfast or lunch.

Only been to Cindy's Diner for breakfast long time ago. Today we were downtown on business and when we realized how close we were I had to take my husband there for breakfast. What a treat. Angie who now owns this wonderful diner was cooking everyone's breakfast with a smile. She is passionate about the diner and doing a great... More
