Wanted to go somewhere for brunch that we hadn't been to before. We ended up here and weren't disappointed, but we weren't blown away either. It's a typical local diner - booths along the front windows and a long counter running the width of the...More

While visiting our daughter in Plainville she took us here for breakfast. She mentioned it on previous visits, however, we never went. The person serving us was very friendly and humorous, which made us feel right at home. The breakfast was great and reasonably priced....More

2 years ago, I decided to try Main Street Diner with my husband. We ordered basic stuff: 1 pancake, 1 chocolate milk, 1 coffee, eggs and toast. I never think to look at the prices because breakfast is usually reasonably priced. When we got the...More

I used to eat in this diner 2-3 times a week. It underwent an ownership change, got 'prettied up', and obviously, the cost got passed on to the customers. Food is nothing beyond the ordinary diner fare. Prices are nothing that will draw anyone but...More
