Just your typical American greasy breakfast made with a lot of butter and very fried. Coffee is so-so. No tea selection. I guess it is convenient for local Middletown residents.

This is a locals joint, and does not accept credit cards. There is an ATM inside if your running low on cash, though ($2.50 service charge).

We were pleasantly surprised by this diner. It has a smaller dining area with seats at the counter. Most of the patrons seemed to be workers grabbing breakfast before starting their day. It seemed everyone knew each other. The prices were very reasonable. You can tell,they take pride in the quality of their food. A delicious start to our day.... More

We stopped in for a quick breakfast on the way to the beach on a weekday. Great little diner. Quick and friendly service. If you're on a diet, may not be a good choice, but it is tasty with an old fashioned style diner charm.

Good food, very friendly staff, caters to locals. Informal atmosphere, excellent breakfast menu. Prices are a little high but reasonable considering the quality and quantity

Quintessential homestyle cooking made to order and served by a fast and friendly staff always willing to accomodate customers who should be paying double the prices on the menu. You won't find a better breakfast in the area and possibly the stare. To summarize in two words: the best!

If you do not want to battle the crowds of downtown, Chelsea's offers great food and quick service. Try the french toast with blueberry "stuffing" !
