Small family run business that is efficient, but pleasant at the same time. Many locals are eating in there especially at the bar so that tells you something right away. The menu is quite varied and we have never been disappointed with our choice. It's all good and reasonable by today's standards. My husband even likes their coffee!

My husband and I stopped into the Rte. 28 Diner for breakfast while visiting the cape . We not only had a great breakfast but mingled in with the locals, and the food was good.

Nice 50's atmosphere- great diner food - fantastic breakfast- or lunch spot - closes at 2 pm. Nothing fancy just good old fashion diner food.

We stumbled across this diner Thanksgiving morning, knowing we wouldn't be having a meal until late in the day. Walked in and was surprised at how busy it was, being a holiday. Clearly a local favorite...for a good reason! Menu offered plentiful choices and pricing was excellent - my eggs benedict and home fries was $6! My husband and son... More

Eight of us stopped in here on a Monday morning for breakfast as the last meal of our long weekend. There are no big tables, so we sat in 2 tables of 4. Our waitress offered us coffee and tea and then gave us time to review the varied menu and lots of blackboard specials. The food was prepared quickly... More

A cute little diner with an eclectic Americana decor. Don't be put off by the looks on the outside. The place is clean, the breakfasts were great and fun and that staff never said no to any request. After 3 days our server even knew who wanted coffee, who wanted tea and who got ice water as soon as we... More

So that this was a fair review, I actually had to wait a little while to calm down and think it over. Here on vacation and read raving reviews. I was excited to go, and ready to wait as this eatery is extremely small. We waited about 20 minutes and finally got seated. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.... More

The special was 2 eggs and a muffin. My wife and I watched as they went to the fridge to retrieve the muffins and then heat them up. Big disappointment for a diner, which usually does its own baking. Prices were great, but not impressed with the food quality at all

We always go to the Route 28 Diner when we are in South Yarmouth. The portions are just right and so is the price. They have some very unusual specials to try including the speed bumps! The best thing though is when there is quiche. I thought the steak and cheese quiche was going to be my favorite, but this... More

We met a friend at this restaurant and my partner and she had beef stew on a bed of mashed potatoes. According to them, it was OK but lacked a lot of beef. I had a chef's salad and it was awesome. It is a great place for breakfast as well. The ambiance of nostalgia was very enjoyable! By the... More
