This is such a great local place to eat. The food is always delicious and a great value (cash only). The service can't be beat.

Staff was very friendly and the food was great and reasonably priced. Be prepared with cash as they don't take credit or debit cards . We came here for dinner after a long day of hiking. Will try breakfast next!

If you're looking for a Michelin star restaurant, keep heading north to NY City. If it's good ol' home-cooked comfort food that's going to hit the spot for you, this is the place to stop for a great meal. It's a country diner and they're really good at what they do.

My boyfriend and I were visiting the area for the weekend, and decided to try out the Hawksbill Diner. We each ordered burgers and fries. They came out quickly and were delicious! The servers were super friendly, and the prices were SO low! If you like the small town diner feel, this place is perfect.

Fantastic local diner. Great responsive friendly service. Delicious homemade food. Daily specials. Large selection of sides. Wonderful prices. We had the special of the day, homemade meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy with a side (I had Waldorf salad, my husband had beets) and rolls with butter. Very filling and satisfying!!! We will go back when we're in the area.

We ate here in November after the B & B we were staying in informed us they do not serve breakfast! The waitresses were so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious!

The owners and patrons were friendly and inviting. It is a family run business for 26 years. Recently renovated, it has a very warm, cozy atmosphere. The food was both good and inexpensive. I highly recommend it!

Try to arrive before 10 for a good breakfast, efficiently served in this local cafe. Basic old style local place and appears to be popular with local people. We've visited several times over the past seven years and the food and service is always pretty consistent.

Stopped by Hawksbill while on a couples weekend in the Valley. Reviews were not wrong, great friendly service, ample portions, and tasty food. Under $20 (cash) for breakfast for 2 was great. We will return.
