The most original diner. Owner is very open and positive and really knows what a diner with good food should be. Lovely pancakes, excellent coffee, great atmosphere. Definitely worth stopping by.

We were warmly treated to some hometown ribbing which set the mood for a GREAT luncheon experience...and they didn't just pick on the visitors...the locals got it as well! The food was GREAT...I enjoyed the club and would have enjoyed the french fries had the oil been changed since the last fish fry! WONDERFUL experience and happy that we stopped!

What is a small town without a silver sided diner? Luckily, right on Main Street you'll find the tiny restaurant. Like the typical diner it is not about fancy, it's about food. I stopped here for lunch on a fall trip of the town. The chowder features a thick creamy broth, large chunk of potatoes and clams. Not fancy but... More

Except for the expected wear and tear resulting from almost 60 years of use... Everything else is intact: counter, booths with cracked leather seats, menus(including “Hilbilly Benedict”), neon advertising, all! Prices are updated, though! Coffee is great and I highly recommend the Vermont Apple pancakes. I stopped here while waiting for the Precision Museum to open and I'm glad I... More

Come across this place by accident, although nothing to look at, the food was good and the service was fast. Shelly was pretty funny and she is worth the visit alone. Although you could go elsewhere for a half-fat, mocha skinny, with a lemon twist and an organic, free-range poppy seed muffin, this is fine for a homecooked breakfast. Thank... More
