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 another 30 min waiting. If you're not in a hurry, then it's not an issue.... 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 out. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. We go early to beat the... More

Recent visit with my daughter visiting from out of town for the holidays. This used to be one of our favorites. It was a real disappointment - service was bad; never asked once if I wanted a refill on my 6 oz $1.60 coffee, only got about a dozen home fries (and was told by the waitress it was a... 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.

This restaurant was recommended to us as "just the spot" for a Saturday morning breakfast. The food was excellent (french toast and an omelette) and the prices were quite reasonable. What a gem!

Just stopped in to Diane's for brunch with my lovely wife prior to proceeding on with our day. It was 11:00 am and the place was packed. We had to wait a minute for the table to be cleaned, but it was done quickly. I wad a Jack Piggy omelet and my wife had a one egg omelet. Both came... More

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 you never have an empty coffee cup. Staff is attentive and wants your dining experience... 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 end up napping for the rest of the day. Everything else on the menu is... More
