The Ball Hill Diner is an excellent café. The staff are ever so friendly and the food is amazing. I personally do not like the sausages so I was thrilled when I got told that I could swap certain things for others. Overall, the atmosphere is really good and the USA décor is just fantastic! Totally recommend for families as... More

Cheap as balls, so that part of the name makes sense. Wasn't on a hill however so that bit doesn't make as much sense. Service was splendid, food was exquisite, however a pair of hippos interrupted our meal so we had to depart. I also liked the milkshake.

Have often driven or walked past and never been in. My partner and myself visited yesterday for Sunday brunch after a few too many the night before. Staff friendly and service good. Excellent choice. Place was busy but food was served quickly and was hot. The prices were reasonable and they seemed to be very busy with home deliveries as... More

I love the decor and USA memorabilia. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I found my new favorite cafe in Cov. Proper... More

You know it's freshly made when you get your breakfast from the diner. It may take a little longer but who cares when it's good ingredients cooked fresh just for you. You can also personalise your breakfast by swapping items and the staff will most likely remember how you like it, they are funny and friendly local people who are... More

A local cafe, most of the clientele know each other and staff aren't used to seeing new people I think. Found it easy to get a seat and it was clean. Was served quickly. Now also do deliveries which is very handy but only to part of Coventry, my home address not covered. Website is very helpful although I wish... More
