We met for breakfast on a Sunday in January. Not crazy busy but not many open tables either. Good service and good food. I'd go back.

Needed a break off Rt 84-just a short drive for a fresh home cooked breakfast. Reasonable prices, friendly staff. Unique retro diner with dining room added on.

The breakfast we had was hot and delicious - eggs, potatoes, bacon and a bagel. Bottomless coffee and reasonably priced. So comfortable. Feels like you belong and they'll welcome you back anytime.

This is a great breakfast / lunch place ! We had the eggs w/corned beef hash and French Toast and both were great ! There is a counter with 8-10 seats and a dining room with 10-15 tables. Excellent, friendly service. Cash only.

Almost didn't want to review because then more people would know about it. Eating here is like taking a step back in time. From the outside to the dinning counter and stools that are right as you walk in the front door. The staff great...More

Sandy Hook Diner is the place we stop as we travel to New England. It's easy on/off 84. A gas station is nearby. The food is incredible. Countless selections. There are so many menu items that it's difficult to select: Eggnog French Toast. Pineapple pancakes....More
