Best place to get breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Food is outstanding and prices are good. Get there early because between the Church crowd, early morning exercisers and the locals, it gets pretty crowded.

If you are looking for a breakfast place, this is it. Food is fresh ( pancakes with actual blueberries, eggs cooked to order). Diener's has booths and tables as well as a counter to serve its customers. Portions are large. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. My wife and I was wondering how far they walk, since they are always... More

A unique place to eat in Mechanicsburg. The mornings are always crowded, including the stools at the bar-like counter. The servings are ample and the food is well prepared. Thy the Pumpkin pancakes for something different. The place was somewhat remodeled a few years ago and the old photos of by-gone Mechanicsburg were replaced by cheap paintings that took away...

This breakfast/lunch gem is a great history lesson on the quaint town of Mechanicsburg PA. Go back in time, sit in one of the original booths and enjoy a wide variety of breakfast entrees and sandwiches made to order. The food is just like mom used to make and the service is outstanding. Never an empty coffee cup found here.... More

Locally, Diener's has a pretty strict, loyal following. After several stops over the years, I can't think of any other word, in a nutshell, to describe Diener's other than 'average.' It just is. It's in downtown, so you'll be parking on the street, as they have no lot of any kind. AND, the restaurant next door, which does have a... More

Well, you could sit back and enjoy your coffee and conversation with your spouse or a friend. But the multitudes waiting for a table might get upset. Very good, and interesting, breakfast items. You may find sticky bun french toast, red velvet pancakes, or blueberry pancakes along with standard breakfast fare. Coffee is good and service is usually very good.... More

Really enjoy Diener's! Very good breakfasts - freshly made and quick service. The wait staff is friendly and attentive and atmosphere is comfortable. Not real large and sometimes there is a wait, but this simply shows how good and popular this little restaurant is! No parking lot but can usually find parking right along Main Street with no real problem.... More
