While sitting eating a delicious breakfast I faced a counter with a picture of a police officer and a little boy. I thought of a Norman Rockwell Cover which was very similar. I asked and found out that the counter was used for that cover. This diner also served a great breakfast. The diner has been here for years.

We wanted to eat here because of the Norman Rockwell painting. The diner is small but the food is excellent. We had a very good breakfast that held us over until dinner. The waitress was very good and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend Joe's for the food and experience.

Came here for breakfast on our way to the Norman Rockwell Museum because it was said that this diner was used in one of his paintings. Small, local place, where people interact with the waitresses, food was good, and reasonable.

Stopped for breakfast at this diner, the inspiration for Norman Rockwells ' The Runaway'. Great breakfast at a good price. Friendly service.

Three of us had turkey dinners that were great but a table of folks arriving minutes later were told the turkey was sold out. Heads up, arrive early. We got there about 5pm on a Tuesday evening. I believe they my be closed on the weekends,

If you like diners and cafes, this is a great place to eat, especially for breakfast. It's been there for decades and is known throughout the region. The food is good, the staff is friendly, and the prices are reasonable.

What a fantastic little piece of classic Americana! Joe's seems like a place all the locals go and everyone knows everyone. The staff was very friendly and seemed to know most of the customers. The diner is clean and a little dated, but in a very charming way! I think it would lose its character if it was modernized at... More

This is "Americana" at it's roots, snobs say home. Love these " Mom and Pop" places . Basic soups and sandwiches, service sort of "Durginish". Small place open for breakfast and lunch.

It was pretty busy but ordered some burgers to go... very juicy, homemade, and delicious! The fries were very crispy and hot! Chocolate shake was liked they used to make them. Yummy! Good diner food!
