The best old fashioned diner in town is being lost to 'progress'. The neighboring Town Hall Theater is buying the property and closing the diner to make way for arts and dance. This is a shame as Middlebury continues its path away from down home...More

Great little diner in Middlebury. The food is the type of food you expect at a diner. Nothing fancy so don't expect that. I had the Raspberry Cheesecake French toast with a side of home fries. The French toast was very devious. Home fries were...More

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast. He wasn't impressed with his eggs and homefries. I had oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts which was fine - it was a very large bowl and I couldn't finish it.

Skipped the hotel and walked to this diner. Standard breakfast made the way I wanted it with egg whites et al. Rather quirky in that they charged me for their chef made hot sauce, which was good...but who charges for hot sauce? Pleasant wait staff....More

Breakfast at the Diner is the best around! The staff is friendly and helpful, as well as very efficient. Their loaded homefries of potato, cheese, onion, and bacon are so tasty. When I have eggs, they are cooked perfectly. So good

It's ok. The menu is ok, but not extensive nor imaginative. The service is ok, but not real focused as to why they're there. It's a diner which serves breakfast, gets it done, then closes. It's ok.

Ever since the new owners came in. Not near as good as before. Severs not even close to being as friendly.

Went for Sunday breakfast. The Diner has been in Middlebury for decades. I believe it is primarily for breakfast and lunch. It harkens back to old times. The breakfast food was what I would call "comfort food". I had two pancakes with scrambled eggs, potatoes...More
