Bacon and eggs with home fires, biscuit and coffee. Wife had same. Very good portion of bacon and home fries. Price was great. Off the beaten track, you won't stumble across this place, you will looking to go there. Breakfast and lunch only. Worth trying.

The Village Diner is a Hillsborough fixture since the early 1970s. Ethel and Hammy were always there and they place could be counted on for consistency good Southern comfort food. Their daughter has continued the tradition and the diner offers great breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Our Civitan Club in Hillsborough formerly met at The Village Dinner. The buffet was affectionately know as "A heart attack on a plate." VERY greasy and full of carbs. We discontinued meeting there because there was a "mandatory" tip for each meal. Jane H.
