Every time we visit Providence, we come to eat a scrumptious breakfast at the Modern Diner. There's a wait but no one complains as the food makes up the inconvenience. Every kind of omelette and French toast that you can think of and then some.

Huge menu, great food, old school diner. This is a place you truly want to visit if you like original diners. The counter and booths I believe are original. Gorgeous. $$

My daughter and husband recently moved to Pawtucket. Knowing that I'm a diner nut, they turned me onto the Modern. Only breakfast food on weekends which is fine with me. Everything thing we ate was great from the homemade hash to the outrageous hollandaise sauce...More

I work in the area and I'm always looking for good lunch spots. This definitely fits the bill. Classic style diner, with booths and a counter. Deceivingly big, lots of tables, and they have more seating in the back. The menu is pretty big. They...More
