My wife and I took a fall ride through many rural rides in Connecticut with Charlene's Diner our destination. The server was excellent and we enjoyed our meals and the diner atmosphere. Definitely a place to return to.

Very friend staff. All family run, favorite local hangout. Great cornbeef hash and hash browns with onions is a must. Come here a couple more times and they will know your order by heart. Have to go place for breakfast..

Charlene's is a great small town diner with it's 50's/60's décor, hospitable owners and waitstaff that have you feeling like you're one of the locals even if you aren't. The portions are enormous, absolutely delicious, and everything looks and tastes homemade... Highly recommended!

It felt like traveling back in time when we walked through the door! What a fantastic place for a phenominal breakfast. The waitstaff is so friendly! The food is not only delicious, mega-portioned but so reasonable. We were just starting out on our weekend venture and this was a great way to fuel the trip!
