We ate at this diner twice while in town and would go back when we visit again. First time was breakfast - it was pretty crowded but we got in quickly. Food came out fairly fast and everything was great. Second time was late at night, as we were returning from the Hershey New Years Eve celebration and realized we... More

The food is typical diner food. The staff, though, were really friendly and kind even around the holidays, which we really appreciated. Also, their hours were fantastic. It was great knowing that a place with decent food would almost always be open in town while visiting.

We appreciated that the diner was open late (we tried the Soda Jerk first and they were closes). We got our food relatively quickly but it took about 45 minutes to get the check. The chilli was good but the potato skins were soggy. Milkshake was nice and thick and made with chocolate ice cream.

We were a group of 6 which included 4 children and figured how bad could a diner be. Well, being that everything in the area had a 45 minute to an hour wait and the diner wasn't even half full should have been a sign. But we were all starving and tired after a busy day and just wanted something... More

We went to the diner for breakfast. We decided to eat there because it was cheaper than hotel restaurant. The waitress was in no hurry to take our order or bring drinks. Food was average and nothing special. Felt like being in a Waffle House.

Good food, and decent-sized portions. Big selection to choose from, and friendly staff. Had a nice "diner"-vibe as well. Overall a nice place to stop after a long day at Hershey Park.

Although our GPS was set for a different restaurant, it brought us to the Cocoa Diner, and we were very pleased! Tammy our waitress was excellent; I had the Cocoa Diner Omelette, which had crab meat, broccoli and hollandaise sauce...delicious! Big portions, prompt service and coffee refills, and my friend's pancake looked so fluffy...all in all, it was just right,... More

Although the location is Hummelstown, this classic diner is located very nearby Hersheypark and the Hershey medical center. We came here for breakfast and were impressed with the pleasant, quick service and the delicious food. I had oatmeal which was prepared just right- no extra milk needed - with brown sugar and raisins on the side. I also had cinnamon... More

While heading back from a trip to Palmyra we stopped by the Cocoa Diner for a quick bite. I'm glad we did. The service was good, the place was clean, the food was above typical diner food quality and I have to say the pricing was correct for the items we chose. I had a Greek salad and my wife... More
