It is now the Little Dog Diner. It's pretty good for brunch - great bloody Marys - but eating outside is preferable and that's not always an option weather-wise.

Cute, great food, late night destination or early stop. I enjoyed this place during my college years.

This is a great place to grab a classic burger and fries. The seating is a bit cramped inside, but you get to enjoy seeing the food cooked at the grill and hearing the banter between the wait staff and the cooks. Great old fashioned...More

This is my husband's favorite place to go for breakfast. The food is always good and big portions. May take a bit to get seated and a waiter, but once you do the service is fast.

Every city has their local diner and Do-Nut-Dinette is Norfolk’s. It’s everything you’d expect a diner to look like: a not totally kept up trailer, 2 cops sitting at the counter munching on the diner’s homemade donuts and coffee, and a random group of people...More
