We eat breakfast here quite often. The meals are good and coffee hot. The service is superb. The eggs come with toast, grits, or home fries. The pancakes and waffles are excellent.Enjoy!

Stopped by after a long absent. Food was quick and tasty. Eggs were not done as requested but everything else was fine. Prices were average for area. Nice small dinner feel. Stop by when in alexandria. Place was doing a good amount of carry out business.

This is my go to place for a quick breakfast. Always get the eggs, bacon, hash browns juice and coffee. A great value with healthy portions.

Three of us had breakfast at the Barnside Diner on Sunday August 21. The sausage gravy and biscuits and the chile/cheese omelet were spot on. Service and meal preparation were all very good.

We had never visited the Barnside Diner, but decided to go after a long plane ride. So glad we made the decision! The food was so delicious, it was quiet, and we had great service.

I came in and asked what to try on the menu and was told the African omelet and it couldn't have been a better selection! It was delicious and large portions, I was very impressed with the flavor and uniqueness of this omelette. I've since been back and tried the corn beef hash and is was just as delicious. Quick...

This place was packed, promising an excellent, all American breakfast. (As a British visitor, breakfast is one of the things I really look forward to when visiting.) Unfortunately, lack of competition is probably the reason for the 10 minute wait for a table, rather than the quality of the food. Service was curt and my western omelette was a plain... More
