We stopped for Breakfast on our way to Consumer Reports, and I must say the food was delicious. Honestly, looking at the outside of the place we weren't sure if we wanted to step inside because the shades on the windows were closed and the...More

Went to breakfast several times before giving up. The food was good and freshly prepared and served hot. The service was poor each time. Sat for at least 30 min. before given a menu. I think there is only one person cooking, which makes for...More

We try to go here once a week for breakfast. Diane is the nicest person you could meet, but she's always in cooking. I'm glad she is, she's got breakfast down. For about 10 dollars the two of us eat with coffee that never runs...More

We love treating ourselves to breakfast at Diane's every few weeks. Healthy, generous breakfast entrees, and specials every day are worth trying. Service is always with a smile so we always enjoy visiting regularly.

Stopped in at Diane's Restraunt at Route 16 and Route 149 for breakfast. The place was crowded as usual, but it didn't keep us from being greeted with a warm hello and smile. The food here is excellent and well priced. Portions are generous and...More

Check out the pancake specials at this joint - on any given morning, they've got something with chocolate, blueberries, almonds, apples, you name it. Don't get overconfident, either. Those carb cakes are the size of a small country so you won't need a half-stack to...More
