Hadn't done this in years. After seeing a show in downtown Hartford, we stopped in at this long standing location in East Hartford for a midnight breakfast. Fantastic pancakes, genuine fresh strawberries, and a choice that included bacon, sausage, AND ham!!! All for $10. Aside from that mass of food, the service was fast and friendly, the atmosphere bright and... More

We've tried breakfast and lunch here a few times and each time have walked away saying we wouldn't go back. Breakfast for two of us was $25+ despite having nothing more than a couple of eggs, toast, sausage and an omelet with toast. Food quality is very average - unimaginative and leaves with you with the feeling that the kitchen... More

For a diner, the food was pretty good. I ordered and maybe 5 minutes later the food came out piping hot and delicious. The only issue i really had was with the staff. Everyone seemed to be grumpy. And it started with the owner. I was so upset to find out that their jukeboxes don't work anymore...oh well! The food... More

Only place we could find for a late night meal but it turned out very well. Breakfast foods were fine and we enjoyed the omelette, home fries, eggs and toast. Coffee was quite good but had a cinnamon taste to it. service was extremely good and professional. We got what we had ordered and the waitress was quite attentive. Definitely... More

My friends and I have been meeting for breakfast st Triple A once a month for at least a decade and a half. The diner is halfway between our residences but there is nothing halfway about one's experience, there. As is said to be the case with diners across America, the food, here, is and always has been good. One... More

Love this diner. I go once a week with my mom to have "breakfast for lunch". Last week I went with my mom, boyfriend and 3 kids. The waitstaff are the best. Food is always delicious. Great diner!

First, the waiter had an attitude. I order chili cheese fries and a chicken burrito I knew I was going to enjoy the chili cheese fries and I thought that I would enjoy the chicken burrito when I took a bite out of the chicken burrito it had giant slabs of green pepper in it I ended up being disgusted...

Disappointing meals with a friend. Ordered from the specials for the evening. Soup and salad were very good. Bread very dry. Entrees of beef goulash looked appetizing. However, the beef was tough and dry. Definitely had not been prepared by simmering the meat in a gravy or sauce for a period of time to be flavorful and tender. Waiter was... More

It's just what you would expect from a diner. A very friendly and jovial staff, inexpensive diner food at diner quality just the way it is supposed to be. If you want good cheap pancakes, waffles, elderly women behind you talking loudly about their life story's in the next booth this place is great! If you are expecting anymore you... More
