This place rocks. I dine out for breakfast several times a week. Laurel is one of the best meals I have had in quite a while. The corned beef has was terrific. The pancakes were by far the best in Connecticut. The home fries were outstanding. I can't wait to return as I saw may things on the menu and... More

The staff treats its patrons like family in this no frills all about the food diner. The amount of food you get for the price is fantastic. The corn beef hash is amazing! The seasoned home fries are always served hot and the eggs are cooked to perfection. Staff is always asking if you need more coffee. Great place! We... More

Small old-fashioned diner for breakfast and lunch. Lots of specials (written on the upper part of the walls around the diner), Reasonable priced. Food and service were good. Minimal parking.

My husband and I went for breakfast after church on a Sunday morning. We only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table- it is a very small diner. They have a pretty decent menu, along with specials written on white boards hanging up in a few places. They are known for their homemade hash and hash browns.I had... More

Good food and plenty of it. Reminds us of the old trolley dining of years past. Friendly staff and fun to watch your meal cooked. Go early as the place fills up fast.

I love Diners and the Laurel Diner did not disappoint. Fresh made hash was delicious and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Having a choice of hash browns or home fries was nice. Small place and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a seat on a Sunday morning, service was good. Coffee was nice and hot but just a... More
